    My wife and I will be having our first child in October. I’m scared shitless but even more excited I think. I still have a lot to accomplish before our baby boy is due - quitting smoking being the most important, but I just built the crib over the weekend and I was glad to get that done.

    Congrats! Our first arrived two weeks ago and it’s been challenging but oh so worth it. You’ll do great and you can always hit me up if you have questions.

    Also, may I recommend the following?

    Baby boy! We just decided on his name a day or so after we found out the gender.

    Love all the rock lullaby albums you can find online... so fun listening to them and laughing when you put it on shuffle while trying to get the baby to sleep.

    And, of course, congrats on the baby announcement!

    My son is 15 months old and lately he's been waking up at 3:30 in the morning just screaming. I always pick him up and hold him to settle him down, but it's really fucking with his sleep schedule since he can't really go back to sleep after that (he just fell back asleep while eating). He's already on an awful schedule since I work late and his mother keeps him up too late. Also he's been throwing a lot of tantrums lately on top of teething. I feel bad for him and I honestly don't know what to do. I've asked my parents and they said whiskey, but I don't think that's such a great idea.

    In my experience, there's really no sleep schedule between 0 and 24 months, haha. I know everyone tries to set one, and some days/nights you're lucky to stick to it, but the first two years, so many things pop up (teething, sleep regression, illness, separation anxiety, etc.) that it's just something you have to learn to deal with and fight through it on various occasions.

    I know everyone says try the cry it out method, but I can speak from a lot of experience that sometimes it just doesn't work.

    I wish I had the answers, or at least wish someone else did, because then no one would have to suffer through these things.

    Yeah, I don't think there really is any answer that fits all. You just do whatever you have to do to get them to sleep and get some sleep yourself. My youngest is 18-months and refuses to fall asleep in her crib, even with one of us there with her, but has no problem falling asleep in her rock-and-play that she is far too big for without us being next to her. Then we just transfer her to her crib after she's asleep.

    Also, 12-18 months can be a very tough age because they're starting to get more independent in what they want or need but can't really speak to say those things so it just resorts in a lot of crying and screaming. It gets better, but also harder in other ways, over time haha

    My little dude won't sleep in his crib either. We actually just took it apart and we made him a little bed he can crawl in and out of. He prefers his pack-and-play to sleep in, but would rather fall asleep on the couch or in an actual bed. Sometimes he'll act like he wants to be in one area, but it's only so he can climb down. Ever since he started walking a few months ago it's been a challenge. I do love watching him figure everything out though.

    I'm about ready to check myself into a mental health facility or something. My 3 year old is driving us insane

    Daughter was finally sleeping through the night (mostly) and now the 6-month sleep regression. Yay


    Finally got our son to fall asleep in bed by himself. Just two books, glass of water and then kiss goodnight. It's glorious.

    So a couple of days ago they ran a bunch of blood tests on my son and we just got the news that everything is normal. It’s been the longest week of my life

    Glad everything came back normal! Were y'all expecting something different?

    Well not expecting but still scary. Especially since my wife is a nurse so she kind of knew what exactly they were testing. Looking for cancer/leukemia
