I WANT TO SHOOT MYSELF IN THE FACE 5 TIMES AFTER DEALING WITH WYATT LAST NIGHT.
Holy freaking crap. Wyatt literally woke up crying/screaming every half an hour to 1 hour. IT WAS BRUTAL. I feel sort of guilty about how I acted last night. I was angry and I raised my voice a few times. So dumb. I won't do that again. I was pretty much losing my mind from sleep deprivation and I have a very low tolerance for loud noises. I'm terrible. I felt so badly about it that I prayed about it today. SERENITY NOW. I tried everything to get him back to sleep. I would hold him, rock him, bring him into bed with me... nothing really worked. I would just have to lean over his crib and rub and pat his little head until he finally gave in. But 5 minutes of screaming at 3 am feels like an hour... it's weird.
So tonight I don't know what I'm going to do. I feel like I just need to leave him to figure it out, because he's never going to stop waking up if I always go to him in the middle of the night. I know a lot of you hate the "cry it out" method, but for those of you that are all about it, could you give me some re-assurance? I think it's probably the best way to deal with this.
