Owen very rarely sleeps through the night and if he does he is normally up by five. The doctor said try melatonin but all it really does is put him to sleep, not keep him asleep. I wonder what the solution is.
When he wakes sometimes it is just a matter of him coming and getting in bed with me and he is out again. There are some nights he screams at the top of his lungs for twenty minutes or longer. And then there are some nights we are just up for the rest of the night. Those are the nights I just wanna say, oh my! There are nights he wakes up multiple times and each time is different.
I have tried feeding him right before bed and I’ve tried not giving him any food or drink and hour before bed and it really doesn’t change the outcome. Hopefully, as I learn more about autism and I explore it further I will learn the ins and outs of sleeping, or lack there of sleeping.
So here’s to a sleep filled night of donut dreams or at least the sheep jumping properly. Night night and sweet dreams to my baby love. Hoping and praying that sleep finds him and comforts him all through the night.
