My fiancé and I live together with no children and we are both full time workers and students. I get sooooo grumpy when I've been doing whatever all night (hw, cleaning etc) and I come to bed to hear him snore. On nights like those I just sleep in the guest room. I honestly don't know how new parents deal with annoying shit like that on top of having a screaming or fussy baby. It's impressive.
You've made it past level one and are on to level two. The end boss involves a strobe light, a bed shaped like an airplane seat, and an army of mosquitos that make alarm clock sounds.
Set up a bed in the baby's room and then make your partner sleep in there!
#13 Astonishingly those are the kind of sounds that ensure that the baby will sleep through the night. When I was beyond exhausted from lack of sleep between a baby that wouldn't sleep for longer than 90min between nursing, and a snoring hubby, I put the baby next to my hubby and slept in the kids room. Best all-night-sleep I had had since birth.
Before one of my close friends had kids, I would have questioned how a 10-month-old could "decide" anything, much less to misbehave or not sleep. Said friend now has an almost-two-year-old who has had issues with going to sleep when he should since he was about the age of OP's baby. And he's experiencing his Terrible Twos early, as well. I have learned many things from observing my friend's child. Like that I am unsure if I have the patience to be a mother. I feel for you, OP. I hope you manage to get some rest soon.
