If you don't read the article, you think how does this make her different than many kids?  Then you read she had sleep apnea, which I guess is unusual for a newborn.

Well maybe if that baby hadn't done so much got damned COCAINE she wouldn't have a deviated septum.  Had a similar issue with brap jr. until we started bottle feeding him Nyquil.

Nyquil?  What the hell is wrong with you?  Benadryl is for babies.  B.  Baby.

I have not slept for 18 months either because that would be too long.

Never EVER drug a baby to sleep with OTC medecines!

That's what whiskey is for.

I though the whiskey was for teething. Are you trying to say that gently shaking them to sleep is wrong?

Whiskey is for the babysitter.  You NEVER shake a toddler. you apply a good choke hold.

The morning of my first day home (also as a Bronx newborn) my parents woke up at 8am in the morning and ran to my crib thinking I was dead. I was just sleeping. I never had a problem sleeping as a baby.

Still don't.

You still do not experience problems sleeping as a baby?

Huh....first kid would always wake up at least once during the night until he was about 2 years....maybe slept through the night once or twice.  Our 8 month old has maybe slept through twice so far.  Didn't know this was unusual...

Sounds like she has ADHD.  They should give her Adderall so she can concentrate on sleeping more.

You're only supposed to give them liquor if they have the croup! Or colic, or the jimmy legs, or...

Most parents hardly get any sleep those first few nights home for fear of SIDS and making sure the baby is fed at proper intervals to regain birth weight.  Good to hear your parents didn't care about such matters and were able to sleep so soundly.

I've never understood that, ok, we're gonna tape a bunch of shiat and tubes to your face, ok, niiiighty. I understand it serves a purpose, you'd just think they would somehow simplify it.

If I were offered a cute woman's nipple to suck every time I woke up crying, I'd be waking up every 3 hours too.

Haley Rivera hasn't slept through the night since she was born 18 months ago.
Neither has her mom or dad.


Well that is bad parenting.  Coffee for one; tiny ear plugs for the other and switch every couple nights.

Benadryl is sometimes VERY necessary for kids.

Dr. Haviva Veler is the director of Weill Cornell's Pediatric Sleep Center and a pediatric pulmonologist at New York-Presbyterian's Komansky Center for Children's Health.

*shakes head*

 I read that as Valveeta.
 
2013-02-25 05:15:52 PM
Veler suggested to Stella that she place many pacifiers around her daughter's crib, so that when Haley wakes up, she can more easily find the pacifier herself and learn to put herself back to sleep.

How the hell did they not figure that shiat out on their own??

Lee451: The next night you can't get to sleep, think about this:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal_familial_insomnia


The patient suffers increasing insomnia, resulting in panic attacks, paranoia, and phobias. This stage lasts for about four months.
Hallucinations and panic attacks become noticeable, continuing for about five months.
Complete inability to sleep is followed by rapid loss of weight. This lasts for about three months.
Dementia, during which the patient becomes unresponsive or mute over the course of six months. This is the final progression of the disease, after which death follows.

Known Causes: reading this Wikipedia page.

WTF are you doing to us!?
 
2013-02-25 05:19:58 PM
We used the Baby Wise system. Worked pretty well as he was sleeping through the night at 5 months. They should try that, and if that doesn't work exchange her for one that sleeps, next time they are at the hospital.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Pity them.


Blame them, for it's a behavioral problem and behavior can, and should be modified by discrete parenting. The doctor even proscribed a behavior modification for treatment.

All too often behavior problems are either caused by the parents or not fixed because of a lack of resolve on the part of the parents.

Yeah this works great and we figured this out by the third or fourth time the pacifier fell out of the crib in the middle of the night. Now we don't put him to bed without having at least five pacifiers scattered inside the crib.

Put clothes in dryer.  Put baby in basket.  Put warm clothes on baby in basket.  Run next load in dryer with baby laying in basket on top of dryer while you sit in chairs watching baby on dryer in basket.  Baby sleep.  Use condom or nut cutting to prevent further complications.

Our first son did that. For the first year of his life he didn't sleep more than 45 minutes at a time. The sleep deprivation was incredibly debilitating and painful. He didn't sleep through the night for the first time until he was 6 and we were dosing him with 9mg of melatonin per a neurologist. He still has sleep issues at age 10. He would stay up until 3 am reading if we let him, and sometimes we do just because we need to go to sleep without the argument, but he *needs* to sleep sometimes so just about every night is a battle.

Our younger son, age 6, will generally just drop off like a stone then roll out of bed in the morning without an issue.

It's hard not to sneer at parents who think their kids sleep great because they did something magical and amazing in the discipline department.  Sometimes this shiat is just something that people have to suffer through for years in order to get their kids safely to adulthood as capable, self sufficient human beings.

Our little man is almost 6 months and hasn't slept all night. We also have the type of monitor that detects lack of movement after 20 seconds of stillness, to help with the SIDS thing.

Lucky.

I have an 8 month that has only slept through the night about 3 times. He was getting better last week than got another tooth. And runny nose. Oh well...I always remind myself it could be much much worse. But yeah, I am ready for him to sleep through the night.
 
2013-02-25 05:34:59 PM
My first son as a newborn slept almost exactly three hours at a time, like a freakin' clock. It was perfectly manageable, once we aligned our own sleep schedules to match. Our second son, he slept soundly almost all night, the first night, still in the hospital. Once home, i would still wake up every two or three hours at the slightest noise or rustle, but Jacob only ever needed a feeding once or rarely twice per night. Neither of my boys ever used pacifiers more than once or twice each.

we had a person in our infant CPR class ask if she should use the mouth shields that we used on the practice dummies if she had to administer CPR to her baby.
Yes, if you don't know where your baby has been.

I swaddled the hell out of him for the first 5 months or so. That and a white noise machine worked wonders. Dunno how he'd be if I hadn't done that but it worked so I'm gonna do it again next time around. Teething is the worst though. He's pretty much done with that now but when he had one poking through I'd give him some children's tylenol before bed and that usually did the trick
