- bouncing vigorously on the edge of a bed, possibly rocking him- while saying Shhhhhh
- holding him on my shoulder, patting his back- again, with the Shhhhhhh
- laying him in his vibrating bassinet with a pacifier, which I have to convince him he wants by holding it in his mouth for about 10 seconds, then put in back in when it falls out
- worse case scenario- putting him in his car seat and driving around will put him to sleep, but this is a last ditch effort because we don't want it to become a necessity for sleep
Our glimmer of hope- a few weeks ago, Kyle's co-worker, Laura, (who has a toddler and infant a week older than Kaden), told us that this would happen around this age BUT it would pass in a few weeks. Thankfully, I'm still getting enough sleep.
