Re: Please help me, lack of sleep is killing us...

Awww, mama. I know that feeling!

8pm is kind of a late bedtime for a child that age...I would suggest putting him down earlier. And, get yourself and DS into a bedtime routine.

Ours is:
Dinner, bath, story, snuggle...BED!

We co-slept for a few months as well but the thrashing, constant moving wasn't working for us. I'd say move him into a crib/playpen when he can see you. Even if its right next to your bed. Reassure him that you're there, etc.
