My boys are not quite a year old, based on adjusted age... So I have a question to everyone: When do most twins start sleeping through the night? I have not slept more than three to four hours in a row in almost a year now. Granted I have had a day here and there, but one night every two months or so is not cutting it. Friends, I think I am going to lose it if these little guys do not start sleeping soon.
Collin is doing okay, usually waking only once in the middle of the night and has on a couple of occasions slept through the night. He sleeps when he is tired and goes down easily. I have hope for Collin, but Cyrus is the real problem. He does not like to sleep, period. He will only take one nap during the day and if I am lucky, it will be an hour long or so. Today he went down for an hour and a half, however it was not until 3:30 PM. Before his shunt problem he was getting close to sleeping through the night, but he has regressed significantly. He gets up at least twice a night. Last night he was up and awake from 3:30 AM to almost 5:00 AM.
I feel my ability to remember things is failing (yes, even more than normal) and my energy levels are failing. The state of my house is failing and I fear that one day I will overlook something involving the boys that would affect their health. Does anyone have any advice on getting more sleep? A vacation is on the top of my list, but it is a short term solution. I am eager to listen to any ideas you have to offer, and let me also offer my mirror of this blog on Blogger so anyone can post comments without having to get an account for anything. It is not as pretty as this one, but I have had a year to tweak the template.
