So So

Well so far this first week back to work has been ok. I am in no way ready to go back full time but will be doing so August 3. I miss my boys when I am at work and watch video of them on my phone. I was almost in tears the other night for want of holding Jayden. We are all lacking sleep. Tony who would go to bed at 8:30 every night is now up until 10 or 10:30 with the baby. I am getting to bed around midnight and then the little guy is up around 4. I am not getting enough sleep and neither is Daddy. Tempers are flaring over little things. It should be interesting when it is a 5 day a week thing. How can I get Jayden on a schedule? I mean seriously he needs to be sleeping earlier for Daddy to get some sleep plus I need to sleep too. Coffee is going to be my constant companion. Last night he went down around 10 or so but would not sleep in his crib, he does ok in the bassinet but is quickly out growing it. Any ideas on getting him to sleep in the crib? Last night he slept in his swing all night and I slept on the couch. He did sleep until 6:30 though. I was so tired at one point I looked up to see if he was in the swing and did not see him, in my mind I thought he was in the crib. Anyway help please!

Not much you can do at this point. If he sleeps well in other places, let him. Do you still swaddle?

Give yourself some time to work it out. You could try putting his bassinet inside the baby bed for awhile to get him accustom to the room, or a bouncy if you have one, but just something that he already sleeps in can be put in the baby bed, then go from there and be sure if you are trying the bed out right, swaddle him tightly so he feels like he is being comforted all around.
