I'd be tired too if I was up all through the night.

As I was complaining to Kev about how tired I am (yup, still not sleeping through the night again!) I realized there's no point hoping Aspen will start giving me 6 or 7 solid hours. Even if she suddenly did so, in a few weeks she could start teething and we'd be back here, back where I never sleep more than 3 hours at a time and I feel like a crazy person.

I went through a few good days during which I got an hour nap, but then that stopped happening. I suppose even grown ups have fickle sleeping schedules. Oh, and it probably doesn't help that Kev has been snoring a little lately. He's been waking me up randomly here and there, and it almost makes me cry.

I'm just so tired. And nothing seems to work to help Aspen sleep regularly during the night. I never know how long she'll sleep when I put her down, nor do I have any idea how many times she may wake up during the night.

So tell me, what do you do/did you do to cope with the sleeplessness? I'm ready to spend more time expressing breast milk so Kev can get up with Aspen at least one of the two times she wants to eat during the night (the other 4 million times she wakes up I just stick her binky back in her mouth to soothe her back to sleep).
