yeah i know the feeling mine sometimes does that but he won't during the night get him unless i just so tired then i let him stay in the bed and until i goin and get him about 5mins or so then my husband will go to him he can't stand to hear him crythe think some of the reason on my austin don't sleep is some of his daddy fault lol he would have taken a longer nap this morning if he had not come in the door so loud lol and then claims cause i don't work and stay one with the baby i try my best to cook clean and be up all night with the baby he he says i work 16hrs a day big deal i'm not letting anyone else raise my child he knew that when and before we even had ababy and he would ever make it to change places with me for a day cause he wouldn't do it so i tell him get over it lol.

I tell my Dh that being a mom in general, we are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week all year! he can come home from HIS job each day and take two days off for weekends. Even when i am sick, I am on call. I know he'd be going crazy here with the kids, running errands, cleaning house every day all day long. So unless he wants to trade places, he needs to bite his lip and take a turn! Lol. Actually, when i tell him that, it works! Sometimes when he is home and I need a break, I find i suddenly have to go into the restroom and have some private time. Okay so maybe i go in there and read a magazine or play my gameboy. At least I get a break!

give it time. It doesn't hurt to temporarily run errands differently than you usually do, until your son is set into a new routine. It may mean that maybe your parents in in-laws come to your house for dinner. jsut explain that you are trying to get your son into a new routine and for now it would work better with his schedule if dinner, or lunch was at your place. My dh will stay home with the kids if I ask him to while I run errands. And usually, i run them really early in the morning, like 8:30/9:00 during the week after I drop my son at school. then my daughter isn't so tired she falls asleep on the way. ((((((HUGS)))))) i know you will get through this.

It sounded like the other night, his nap was taken too late so he wasn't tired enough to stay asleep. if you also find that he is falling asleep while driving at any time of day, then he really is tired and has a hard time letting himself get into his own down time to fall asleep. Which is all the more reason to work with him on a new schedule that will ultimately help him sleep and you as well!
