Phillip has never been much of a sleeper. From the day he was born he has been up every hour to 2 hours every night. I've talked with the pediatrician and followed all of his advice. I've tried letting him cry it out and refused to nurse at night. Nothing helps! He is one of those charming little babies that throws up when he cries too hard.

The last week or so, he has added insult to injury by refusing to nap. At. All. I still put him down at his scheduled nap times and let him cry in the hopes that he will give up and go to sleep. No dice. True to form, he cries until he throws up.
I've been dealing with sleep deprivation for almost a year and I thought I could just push through it. My thoughts changed yesterday when I almost fell asleep driving home with all 3 of my precious treasures in the back of the van.
I am calling out to my amazing readers out there and begging for your help. Have you been through this? Do you have a magic technique to get your kids to sleep?
