So we are still doing the cry-it-out at night routine. Porgie wakes almost every night around 2 or 3 am, but only cries for about 5 minutes. It is not even really a cry - its more like a whine. I could live with this stupid little routine.
However, I can not tolerate Porgie's new wake up time. Sunday morning she woke up at 4:00 am. FOUR O'CLOCK IN THE FUCKING MORNING. She was happily talking to herself for a while, but then she started crying and crying and crying. She cried until 6:30, when she finally fell asleep. Exhausted, I fell asleep shortly thereafter. But then Porgie woke up at 7:00 am crying again. So we got up. Basically, I got up at 4:00 am yesterday. I was so tired that I went to sleep at 9:00 pm last night.
So this morning Porgie woke up whining at 2:00 am. After 5 minutes, she went back to sleep. At 4:30 am, she woke up screaming. The tears and drama continued until 6:30, when I finally got her up. And now she is in a horrible, sour mood. As I type, she is crying. And guess what? I don't really care. If she wants to start the day at 4:00 am, I guess we are all just going to have to be miserable.
I need some advice my dear Internet friends. Should I just let her scream and cry until 6 or 7 every morning? This cry isn't whining - its full blown tears and quivering voice. Should I go in to comfort her? If so, should I pick her up? When I go in during the middle of the night, she usually just gets more upset. She wants a bottle and cuddles, which I don't feel like giving anymore. I know that I sound awful, but I am sick of all this shit. I just want her to sleep through one night, without whining, without screaming, and without waking up at 4 in the morning.
To make a long story short, I am tired.
