Just over 2 weeks of early waking everyday is taking its toll on baby girl.
Baby girl is constantly disturbed throughout the night by middle girl thrashing about in her sleep and then once middle girl wakes in the early hours, she’s abruptly woken and kept awake leaving her over-stimulated and in sensory overload. She’s in a downward spiral of manic-ness (I made that word up yes!). Gone are the mornings where she would wake naturally and lay content in her bed. Now she wakes in a frenzy of thrashing about and back arching. Gone are the days of cuddles and concentrating. Now she controls and flits from one thing to another.
We tried talking to middle girl again today. We asked her why. ‘I WANT MY OWN ROOM’ she demanded, again. She even suggested that we turf big girl out of her room so she can have it. I kid you not.
We’ll be moving middle girl back to the floor in our bedroom tonight.
I wonder how long I’ll last before I feel out of control and unable to cope, again.
