Hey. Its been a while since I've been on here, its been a hard few months.
I split up with my partner of neqrly 8 yearsat Christmas. It just wasn't how i needed the relationship to be (see my previous posts about some of what happened) and it came to a head early december when we had the last counselling session i attended and i knew it wasn't helping.
Anyway, i moved out with Niamh 3 months ago, she will be 3 in June, and she obviously was a bit unsettled, i expected that, but she still goes to bed perfectly for her dad at his house, but is an absolute nightmare for me. She will quite literally scream for hours. I've tried different bedtimes, controlled crying, co sleeping (like i did when she was a baby) stroking her head. Everything. And ive tried each thing for at least a week, but mothing seems to help. It's 9.15pm and shes currently still screaming since we started bedtime at 7, and could very well continue until after midnight. And she is waking up at 4 or 5, for me, but stays asleep until well after 6 for her dad.
The doctor says it will pass, but for me that's the three months of very little sleep in the new house, plus the 4 months of sleeping on the sofa before i moved out. Im exhausted. And am crying at everything.
