It will get better, I promise! Just hang in there and try to nap when he does right now. You will need your strength.

Have you read any books or articles regarding your problem? You have to do what feels right for you, but it is good to get some ideas on how to get around the problem. At 6 months of age, he can go at least 6 hours (if not 8-10) without eating. It sounds to me he is just seeking comfort, and it will take time (and practice) for him to learn to comfort himself. Hang in there, and look for some techniques to help you get through it....

Hi there. I've been reading your blog for several months now, after finding out we'd be visiting Paris(went in June). I lost my mom last year, and when you write about your mom, I feel every ounce of heartache and missing. My daughter is 3 1/2 now, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my mom. Whenever she does something particularly cute (or upsetting!), the longing returns as strong as it ever was.

For baby . . .just some things I remember from when Malia had her rough nights. . . is he napping enough during the day(and are you napping with him? Please try!)? Is he overtired at night and unable to stay asleep?

The phrase "sleep begets sleep" was so so true for her at this age. Even if she napped from 4-6, we'd still put her down at 7:30 and she would sleep until 6 or 7. Have you tried putting him to bed earlier? I have to say she was formula fed by this time, that probably helped us a lot. I'm sorry you're going through this rough patch. It's not easy. Lack of sleep used to make my husband and I throw pacifiers against the wall sometimes:-)

This book was recommended to me, and it was incredibly helpful:

My comfort was cinnamon rolls, hot and sticky and gooey - with butter

This too shall pass, this too shall pass, this too shall pass.

HUGS, Deb

Oh, I miss my Mom, and I can relate to how you're feeling. I have yet to figure out how she made that fried egg sandwich just right. Lack of sleep, lack of Mom... too much. But, you're doing the right thing with those cookies.

Hang in there, Aimee. Hang in there.
