Sleep runs my life

Sleep has so much to do with how I feel each day, how much patience I have and how I function. I was so pleased when I sleep trained Skyler and he started sleeping until 7 am! Well, then the time change came and he was waking up at 6 instead. That's still okay. Then it was 5:30. Well the last two nights I've put him to bed around 7 or 8 and then he has woken up at 10, 2, 3:30, 6:30, then finally 8:30. I wondering if this is a new habit? Or if it is growth spurt? What is going on??? If I just knew I could fix it. Also the fact that Reagan has been getting up at 6:30 am on the dot isn't helping. I hate it so bad. Reagan has a child lock on the inside of her door so she can't get out of her room without our help. When she wakes up in the morning she goes straight for the door and KNOCKS KNOCKS KNOCKS as LOUD as she can. It is the worst feeling when I hear that knock. It is like I am in high school again and I hear my alarm clock beeping (I had to get up for a paper route and seminary at 4:30 am). Help!

I feel ya...Roman was doing really good with sleep and then I noticed he wanted to go to bed earlier, so I started putting him down at 7-8pm and he wakes up a lot more also...ugh, luckily I got a nap today!!!

I couldn't understand how you feel any more than I do! Drew's slept through the night this past week and I am a NEW PERSON! Sleep = happiness. That's all there is to it. It is impossible to survive w/out a good nights rest. Your only hope if you don't get good rest at night is a nap....oh, sleep deprivation is torture. Good luck!! I hope I'm not back there anytime soon. I was LOSING IT!
