    Hi everyone!

    The last episode of our Bub Hub TV show is being filmed next week and is all about SLEEP (or lack of it!)

    Do you have questions about you're little one's sleep that you'd like us to put to the experts?

    Ask them here!

    Thanks!

    Is there a trick to getting my 7 month old to sleep in her bed through the day rather than in my arms? I'm not keen on CIO and while I have given it a go it hasn't seemed to do anything other than put her out of sorts.
    When I do manage to get her down in her bed she only sleeps for 15 minutes and resettling is futile.
    We co-sleep at night and she is a fantastic little sleeper then, just not so much through the day.
    (I have a 2yo too who doesn't nap through the day)

    My first was a shocking sleeper. What can I do to prevent it this time round? Is a dummy a good idea or a bad idea?

    Default Re: What are your SLEEP issues? Ask an expert!

    I had many sleep issues with my now 9 month old daughter and it took to 7 months to get her to self settle and stop catnapping as I used mainly no cry methods.

    I always wonder with my next baby, when is it ok to stop demand feeding and rocking/cuddling to sleep? Obviously newborns need this, but when does it become a habit and not a need? I assume it is at this point when you can teach a baby to self settle and try some sort of schedule. Given by then I will have two babies to look after, I would rather not have to aid my next baby to sleep for 7 months.

    My DD2 is often awake for 1-3hours overnight....usually between 11pm-2am or 1am-4am. She isn't hungry, thirsty, hot, cold etc - she is just awake and wants company. No amount of cuddles, patting or anything will get her back to sleep until she is ready.

    Do I just need to wait until she grows out of it??? I bought 5 sleep books and not one of them addressed this as a sleep problem.

    Thanks for any help

    I do!!

    My 10mth old DD was a dreadful sleeper when newborn, then at 7mths we got a professional in to help us and she has been amazing ever since, but I'm wondering why at night she moves to every part of the cot at one time or another? Is she getting enough rest with all this moving around?

    My 3 year old still sleeps with me, I don't have a problem with it ( although poor DH has to sleep in DS's room! ) any ideas when he will WANT to sleep on his own? (I will not force him to or do any kind of sleep "training")

    My 12 month old DS still wakes a bit at night, and the only thing that will settle him is me (and boobs!). DH patted him for almost an hour the other night and he just got more and more upset until DH finally gave in and brought him to me. We have two other little ones, so we really try to avoid disturbing their sleep.
    Any tips to encourage him to sleep through, or let DH settle him, or night wean?
