Heres a link on sleep issues there are subheadings about night waking and FAQ's. I'll keep searching today and post additional links on this thread.

It probably wouldn't hurt to call your Ped and see what (s)he thinks is going on.

In the mean time - let the chores go and nap when the kids nap - sleep deprivation is NO FUN. I was so sleep deprived with my DD that I fell asleep driving when she was 5mos and hit an oncoming vehicle. The other morning (last week I think) I dressed her baby brother in her clothes - flowered pants and all and didn't realize it til I went to dress HER. LOL I hope you get some sleep soon!

Here's another link - you have to scroll down but there are tons of articles about sleeping and sleep problems once you get about half way down the page. I haven't read them but you might choose the ones that are applicable to you.

I think you should call your ped. I am sure that there are many 'crazier' moms than you LOL! Don't rule out a medical problem because it could very well be one (bi-polar came to mind but I don't know how that works with kids but when my friends mom is manic she is up for DAYS at a time).

I'm sure its nothing but your ped will probably have some ideas.

OH! Chamomile tea. I gave it to my oldest when he was colick - very soothing. Try serving it with honey in a baba or a sippy.

I'm still looking (between small bouts of work of course lol)
