He won't stop crying unless I'm with him.

Last night was fine. I put him in the bathtub, and all was well.

Today he was in the tub all day (for the most part) and was fine.

Now, any time I try to put him back there to go to sleep, he freaks. He starts crying and scratching at the shower door and just bugs out in general. He basically won't calm down unless I'm holding him. While this is adorable, I need to sleep.

I don't have a separate room for him to be in. I don't want to let him loose in the bedroom with Siren (especially since the door will be shut) because I honestly don't know how that will go and mom and I will be asleep, unable to watch them. I could put him in the carrier in my bedroom, but I don't know if that will be good enough for him and if he's in the carrier, he won't have access to food, water or a litter box.

I seriously don't know what to do. The bathtub is the only option but he bugs out. Should I just put him in there and ignore him? I feel awful doing that but it might be the only option, short of me staying up all night with him.

He's currently falling asleep on my lap wrapped in a blanket.

Please help me. I don't know what to do. I'm so tired and sick and just want to sleep.
