    My DS is nearly 15mths and yep we still have sleep issues, we can have good nights too though, I can't handle CCing either so I will pick him up when I feel he needs me too. I have put a light in his room and it seems to have helped, I have also found that he needs to be rugged up of a night, teething is still a big issue with him, he only has 8 teeth.

    Most (but not all) cases of bubs 6 month + are due to sleep association problems.

    Routine, routine, routine, no sleep aids (dummy, rocking etc), stop night comfort feeds (cold turkey or a phased approach eg push them back by 1-2 hours per night until bub doesn't wake). If you can hack 1-2 nights of crying then cold turkey will probably have bub sleeping through quick smart. Good luck.

    There are some fab suggestions here for you OP. DS has only just started sleeping through from around 16 months old, and the only way he will sleep through is with a dreamfeed at 10:30-11:00.

    I never, ever thought I'd still be doing that at this age, but it works for us

    Hope you get stage sleep issues sorted out soon

    Thanks everyone for your responses. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one experiencing sleep problems! However, it's not good to hear that so many other families are sleep deprived too! :-(

    Also how much sleep is bubs having during the day? I find if mine has between 2-3 hours she sleeps better than if she has less or much more than this.
    As for night feeds if using a bottle just slowly decrease amount in bottle during night feeds.
    Yes she does go to bed at the same time each night and we do have a routine. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to make a difference!

    She has two day time naps of approximately 1.25 hours each.

    I have been slowly decreasing the amounts in the bottles but she continues to wake for it! :-(

    Thank you. Can anyone recommend a particular sleep specialist who doesn't charge a fortune? I've already been to one seminar and read two books from different authors! :-s

    Some nights when I'm desperate I've rocked her to sleep and/or had her sleep in our bed. I'm worried that I may be causing bad habits!

    DH and I are starting to argue a lot over this. He thinks I should let her cry it out, but from what I've read, it's not good for bubs to get themselves so stressed out because their cortisol levels increase :-(

    I don't have any qualifications in this field other than being a mum - my belief is yes, constant CIO and ongoing hours and hours of distressed crying probably isn't good for a baby. But a few minutes/20 mins one - four nights to break the bad sleep associations and get a baby not waking constantly through the night is surely better for both the baby and parents in the long run.

    Hi Hun I promise I wasn't stalking lol but I see you live in Vic, give the queen Elizabeth centre a call, they do have a waiting list. I went with DS and they are fantastic, they do not practice CC, I was in the room with DS right the way through although my little poopy head didn't respond well to it at all just because he's so stubborn but all other children went extremely well, we did the day stay but they also do residential stays too and the beauty of it is it's all bulk billed

    Instead of decreasing the amounts try pushing back the time. If bub usually wakes at midnight for a comfort feed, hold off until 12:30 or 1 before feeding. If you aren't into crying, hold and Rock bub until its feed time. Push the feed time back later each night. I had a friend that did this and within 2 nights bub was waking every 4 hours instead of every 2.

    Good luck.
