Sleep- or lack of it

Forgive the lack of entires but I've been busy at nights updating my 'Charlie log' preparing for my call with the sleep specialist.

Last night as I was trying to get Charlie down for the night a familiar thing happened, he projectile vomited his whole 7 oz bottle all over us both. Poor thing was so upset and had be just centimeters away from sleep before it happened.

The rest of our night did not go well. He go up every hour from 7-11, several times shrieking from gas pain. Then at 1 am he was hungry so I went into fed him and as soon as he finished the bottle I tried to put him down. His reaction- screaming. Every time I tried to put him down after that resulted in screaming.

When he was in my arms he was relax and his eyes would literally roll back into his head. I'm being played. After four attempts to put him down I felt awful but I had to leave him in his crib. I am so spent physically from lack of sleep for months that I now have come to the realization that we are going to have to do some form of cry it out/ferberizing. I can't be a good mother to Charlie if I don't have some level of energy to keep up with him. I'll post back soon and how this all plays out....
