Carter has been waking up between 5:15 and 5:30 every morning since we moved into our rental. Every morning. And sounds transmits terribly well in this place (and it is a terrible thing), so we can't really just let him cry himself back to sleep, because he'll wake up Allison. And then they'll keep eachother awake... Carter crying and babbling, Allison yelling at him to be quiet from the next room ("Hey! No, no!").
So last night we got brilliant (or desperate to sleep until 7 am, whatever you want to call it) and decided that we'd give him a bottle about 10 before we went to bed.
Carter woke up at 4:20 this morning.
I don't think our plan was very effective.
Maybe tonight we'll try giving him a bottle and Tylenol at 10. And Orajel. And does anyone one know of any good child-safe sedatives? We're starting to get desperate here...
