ROCCO AT 1:15AM ON THURSDAY: WAH!WAH!WAH!WAH!
We spent from 1:15 to 2AM “ferberizing” him and thanking God that Vincenzo could sleep through a thunderstorm that rained screaming banshees if need be. By the time Rocco fell asleep at 2AM my body had decided that it was morning and I should go ahead and just get up.
I spent my time binging things like “WHY WON’T 18-MONTH-OLD SLEEP THROUGH NIGHT?” Bing sent me to email@example.com. Here are my favorites from Yahoo’s advice to “sexythickchick” on the same matter:
@ru.barbie2 (because apparently rubarbie must is already taken??) said that I should be potty training my 18-month-old by now and he probably just has to go to the bathroom
@jc20155: “I think you can give them a good shakin’ before bedtime to make ‘um sleepy, but I’m not sure about that.”
@thedawg: “I’m 46 Years Old I Have Been Sleeping A Couple Of Hours A Night All My Life 8/23/60”
@mamabird: “because he is so worried about his mother having a name like sexythickchick, he wants her to grow up and become self-respecting, responsible mother who puts him before herself. just a guess.”
(three people liked this)
The sum of the other answers told me to put him to bed later, stop feeding him in the middle of the night, don’t get him out of the crib, put him to bed earlier, give him a bottle in the middle of the night, and let him sleep in my room.
Thank you, Yahoo. I might not know the answer but at least I know what to do now for the two hours it takes me to fall back to sleep after Rocco wakes up.
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Probably Red Robin. I am feeling like such a slacker lately.
