Prayer Request
Mon, 06-16-2008 - 6:24am
HI! I have a prayer request. Lately Ryan has been getting up real early in the morning like around 4 am to 5 am. And then he will fall asleep at 7 am and then Cassi will wake up at that time. I do give him something to eat when he is up hoping that it will make him sleepy. He is going to bed ok around 9pm and sleeps until 4 am we do give him a snack before bed and we tried no snack before bed something . And then around 3 pm he is ready for a nap which we don't do . He does get excerise going outside at night and swimming . But when he doesn't sleep I don't and then we both are GRUMPY all day long. He has been up today since 4 am. and he take a 25 minute nap and he thought that was enough sleep I guess. Please pray.

Josh went thru a stage like that around 3 years old. Almost drove me out of my mind. I tried giving him a snack but found that it actually made him more wide awake. Have you tried just giving him some warm tea or warm apple juice? Worked wonders with Josh. My pediatrician made that suggestion to me when I told him of my zombie state. He said that feeding them made there bodies rev up for the digestion process which made them more wide awake. ((HUGS)) I know what it feels like to be sleep deprived.
