Please put me out of my misery

Maddisyn has been having some nasty rough nights lately.  She does not go to bed when she is supposed to and she stays up until 10 or 11 and then is up at least once in the middle of hte night if not more.  Last night we were up just over an hour because her legs hurt again from her growing pains.  this has been going on for a few months now and I hope it stops soon.

Top it all off I have been having serious sleep issues lately where i go to bed at 11 or 12 and I lay there awake until 3 or 4 and each night it seems I am awake longer and longer.  I have insomnia sometimes and apparently it is coming at me full force right now and I need it to stop.

    oh, I feel bad for you. Brings back memories and, unfortunately, I don’t have any words of encouragement. I hope you will feel rested and that your daughter feels better soon.

  2. aawww. hope you lil girl is feeling better soon. And that you get some rest. Try some over the counter stuff, that’s what i do. Sometimes I will ask my doctor to prescribe something. but usually do just fine.

  3. Oh my. I feel for you. We are actually on a good sleep streak with Gaige (knock on wood) but sleep has been an issue around here since he was born! Now I am just working on getting Carlie to sleep through the night which is not going well. Still, it is easier when they are babies. It is just frustrating when your 3 year old is up at night. I hope she starts sleeping better soon!

    Been there and done that! It is pure misery and I feel for you! Have her take a nice hot bath before bed that helps alot and have her do some stretching too. I sure hope it gets better for you soon 🙂

    Can you take Melatonin? You can get it over the counter at most drug stores. It might help you fall to sleep.

    Buy some Topricin Jr for your daughter’s leg pain (topical) and for you buy Calms Forte. They can be found at a health foods store but call around first. I use Topricin for fibromyalgia and arthritis pains since I can’t take most meds. And for those times I can’t sleep Calms Forte works great (better than melatonin, I think).
    As far as going to bed, my son wouldn’t go to bed either. But after 8 was adult time (even tho it was just me) and he didn’t have to sleep but he had to remain in bed and quiet. He was so bored, he just fell asleep.
