I can't sleep. Help!
I have said since the day our daughter was born that I wanted her to sleep in her crib (which used to be Little Man's crib) and only in her crib. NOT MY BED. Little Man sleeps with us, and he sleeps Spread Eagle so I get smushed against Daddy and I end up not sleeping at all. (Our bed is shoved against the wall so he sleeps there, I sleep in the middle and Daddy sleeps falling off the edge of the bed.) Anyway, with her fussing at night all of a sudden, and both of us working and needing some kind of sleep, Daddy has been bringing her into our bed on his nights. (We alternate nights with her.) PISSED OFF! I actually wake up to whisper-yell to him to get her ass in that crib or I'm permanently moving my self to the futon in the living room. He ignores me. SO on my nights, after she falls back asleep and I put her in her crib she ends up waking up again in another hour or so. I DON'T WANT HER IN MY BED! Bad thing is, since our apartment is only one bedroom, I can't let her cry it out because then she'll wake up Little Man and getting a three year old back to sleep at 3 a.m........*groan* I can't wait till we move into a bigger place (hopefully this Spring!) so i can let her cry it out if I have to. And so I can start working on getting Little Man out of my bed, too.

the easy thing is to put hubs and newborn on the futon on his nights with her and (yes, I made it this far) you and her the alternate nights on the futon and slowly work her back into her crib (which can be conveniently placed next to the futon until she sleeps the night away..,)
