disturb nights

Mommy have been woken up 2-3 times everynight since 1 year ago. The reason for these awakings is not due to hunger. Everynight, Boy will cry ... don't know for what reason .. and Mommy will stuff him with water and he'll be quiet after that. Sometimes about an hour or so later, he'll start all over again. Following that, Princess would be asking for water (sometimes once or twice a night). If Mommy is lucky, she would have a peaceful undisturbed sleep for a day or two and the 'process' will start all over again. And lucky Daddy ... couldn't hear a single thing ... snoring all the way. Sometimes when Mommy is wicked (and tired), she'll ignore the whinings and cryings (slap Daddy on the arm - signalling him to attend to them) but most of the time she's kind. An example of yesterday night .. normally Princess with be sleeping with Boy in one mattress ... Mommy and Daddy in another. For whatever reason, these two days Princess have been rather sticky when it comes to bedtime. She would want to sleep in-between us. I was fine ... I let her. Halfway thru her sleep in the middle of the night, she (and Mommy) was awaken by Daddy's snoring. I whacked Daddy on his back to make him stop snoring (wicked huh!). Princess told me to carry her. I told her "No la Princess Titi (brother) is sleeping on his own - see) and told her to go back to sleep on her on. She told me "Mommy I cannot sleep on my own". So, Mommy had to lay Princess on her chest like she used to when Princess was a baby. Within minutes she was asleep. Every night I hope to have a peaceful sleep ... but at the back of my mind, I'm always prepared to be woken up. The sacrifice a Mommy .... :)

    Uninterrupted sleep?? Whats that? Once you become a mommy you can say goodbye to uninterrupted sleep.

    If sometimes they cry for no reason then maybe due to the body heatiness.

    zara's mama: Definitely not! I'll faint!

    mom2ashley: lucky lucky u!!

    immomsdaughter: according to the experts, when babies above 1 yo wake up for feeds is due to habit. My kids doesn't when they reaches 2 mths old. But as they grow older like 1 plus and more ... gosh .. waking up for no reason. Prob too much activity during the day. Sigh.

    mumsgather: yeah yeah i agree. Probably until they are 4 yo .. maybe my uninterrupted sleep will get better.

    hui sia: No .. i don't think so .. my kids take 'cooling' drinks once in a while .. so it must be the activities. But thanks for the suggestion.
