All I Want For Christmas Is... My Toddler To Sleep Through The Night.
Have I ever told you how much Maclane sucks at sleeping? No? Here, let me tell you.
Maclane is the worst sleeper in the history of all sleepers. For real. I don't think he's slept through the night once since he was born. That's a whole seventeen and a half months of not sleeping through the night, if you're keeping track.
In our quest to morph our sucky sleeper into a super sleeper, we've tried it all.
He's cried it out, I've cried it out. We've lovingly half Ferber-ed, the most I could handle, begging and pleading while at the same time reassuring him that we're right here and that sleep is awesome.
We've tried sleep sacks, magic suits, slumber bags and more. Blankies, lovies, sacred voodoo dances, you name it. His room, our room, hot or cold, the kid just won't stay asleep.
Of course there's more to this story like how he's still nursing and after two failed attempts at weaning him from those pesky night feeds, I've declared myself too lazy to do anything other than forge on with the status quo. After all, this is a season, right? Surely he'll sleep through the night eventually.
One thing we hadn't tried with him is white noise. Apparently after successfully raising one decent sleeper, I had completely forgotten all about this nifty little sleep aid designed to not only help babies fall asleep but keep them asleep as well.
When given the opportunity to review the Dohmie by Marpac, I practically jumped at the chance. After all, would this be the solution that would grant me my only Christmas wish, for my toddler to finally sleep through the night? Or would I not only be exhausted but also disappointed in another product's empty promises?
