Bedtime is a nightmare just like naps were. At this point, I have to assume he is in pain. So I give him some Tylenol.
But he is crying and screaming so hard that the addition of Tylenol to the picture makes him choke and vomit so violently that it comes out his nose.
Now I have successfully administered Tylenol, and he is snuggling on my chest, hyperventilating, but slowly winding down and getting close to sleep.
What is hurting him? God only knows. Perhaps he is getting sick with something else. Or maybe those other two top teeth we thought were coming in a month ago are actually coming now.
All I know is I’ve never seen him that distraught. Tough stuff. Am I allowed to take a mental health day from work to recover from today’s baby sleep issues?
