Crying babies hazardous to your health

Filed under: Babies, Toddlers Preschoolers, Development/Milestones: Babies

Who needs a highly scientific study to prove that theory? I'm living proof! As I sit here writing this article, I'm sporting a lovely burgeoning black eye from a 4 am head-banging last night. And I'm not speaking of the Enter Sandman variety, either.

I'm considered one of the lucky ones, folks. I am the mother to an extremely good sleeper - he started snoozing twelve hours a night at three months old and never looked back. So when a rare late night outburst occurs, my husband and I act like a couple of highly-confused, half-awake idiots. Stumbling around the bedroom, stubbing our toes, collectively muttering under our breath.

Last night was a doozie. The screaming started at 3:00 and ended at 4:45 am, and as we finally climbed back into bed, we knocked heads with such force, I thought my eye socket exploded. Literally. The pain was horrible. Of course, my throbbing head kept me from falling asleep until an hour before my baby woke up READY! FOR! THE! DAY!

Let's just say I'm ready for this day to be over.

Tell me, has your child caused you to go bump in the night?
