I am sure you have tried it - but what about music on a low volume through the night?
How did the later meal go?
Not too bad, he woke at 2am but resettled quickly without a feed. He then woke at 4.45am wet, quick feed and back into bed until 5.30. So better. There's improvement there.
His sleep is worse then ever, he's now been awake for over 3 hours and will not go back to sleep. I'm so tired that I'm starting to feel sick but he won't go to sleep.
Yep ds2 who's 1yr old was waking that early, I ended up just getting up with him but then thought... This is bull**** he shouldn't be waking this early so I decided to follow through with the controlled crying I had previously introduced for his night waking (he doesn't wake through the night nowadays) so now when he wakes at 4.30am I let him have a cry and he would go back to sleep for another hour or so once he realized I wasnt going to him, the past few weeks he has not been waking at 4.30, he's been sleeping til 6am
