    Default DS is having major sleep issues

    It's me yet again...

    DS is still have issues. I still can't leave the room until he's asleep t else he cries. At least it's not a SCREAM anymore but he will just cry and cry. A few nights ago I tried CIO although I've always been against it. It didn't work anyway. The yesterday during his day sleep I let him cry a bit coz he wasn't hysterical, it was more like a whingey cry. He went for 1.5 hours. It's ridiculous! When I finally have in and went to his room he fell asleep within minutes

    I'm really stresse about this. I'm
    Anxious and DH and I are fighting BADLY non stop.bits taking its toll on our marriage for various reasons

    I'm at breaking point and I don't know what else to try

    When I do sit with him he mucks around and doesn't fall asleep for over an hour!

    He's always had the same bed time and he is definitely tired. I know his tired signs and he just won't sleep.
    It's like suddenly a switch has gone off and he's decided he no longer needs sleep

    He woke in the middle of the night and it took him an hour to fall back asleep again

    I'm exhausted and I can't go on like this

    I've tried trisillian they don't answer the phone. I can't get a referral for them until the 6th feb and my doctor told me to drug DS with phenergen

    No one can help me with this and it's really upsetting me

    No point to my post

    How old is he? Ok he is 19mths from another thread? Is he napping too much during the day or too late in the day? Could he be mucking around because he knows you wont leave him while he is still awake?

    I see you've tried co sleeping but their wasn't enough room, maybe your DP could sleep elsewhere so you can all get the rest you need? I know it's not everyones cup of tea but if your not happy now and your not happy to do CIO or CC (which I don't advocate) than I think the path of least resistance is the best option.

    Can you get a second opinion, see another gp or paediatrician?

    Default DS is having major sleep issues

    Sorry hun I can't offer any advice without knowing specifics (age, what your child's sleeping/eating routine is). There are plenty of things to try other than kicking your hubby of bed (eek: not going to help your relationship if there are already bad feelings). But it's hard to suggest things without knowing more about your situation.

    Good luck

    Default DS is having major sleep issues

    He only has 1 sleep a day and its around lunch time. I take him out every morning to the playground to wear him out and the past while we have even been taking him in the afternoon as well as morning bland I can see He's tired but he just takes so long to fall asleep

    I just went in after letting him cry for a bit (only like 5 mins max) and he finally fell asleep but I just know he won't sleep for long and he will also do the same thing tonight

    Why have things changed so much? Things used to be so easy

    I swear everything is workin against me lately.

    The universe is seriously testing me to the max! The girl who lives below me currently has her music BLARING

    It's been some noise or other every day and night and I am about to snap.

    Dd1 had a sleep hiccup at 18mths and it sucked. How long has this being going for? We found it helped that we moved her to a single bed and we could cuddle her to sleep then leave.

    For our family co sleeping fixes everything.

    Default DS is having major sleep issues

    It seems co sleeping works for us as well however it's not practical right now and also DH is against it long term.

    Problem is he's wakin at night too and then taking like an hour or more to fall back asleep again and I sit there awake (last night I lay on a mattress on the floor awake) he tosses and turns so much that it keeps me awake.

    He used to sleep fine without us

    Can you put him in a single bed? DS found it so exciting and special to be in a big boy bed his sleep improved heaps. And we lie down with him till he goes to sleep or if he wakes in the middle of the night so he's not sleeping in our bed but it's still an easy solution.

    I'd be telling hubby to suck it up IMO everyone getting a good nights sleep is more important than whatever possessive insecurity he has!

    I know that sounds harsh but I find the father expecting the child to sleep alone so he can sleep with his wife totally possessive, and the act that he doesn't help? Maybe he could lend a hand!

    I hope someone else has a magical answer for you

    Default DS is having major sleep issues

    What time does bub get up in the morning, go down for a nap, go to bed at night? Bub may be ready to have the day nap pushed back. Having a day nap that's too early can start a chain of events such as shorter naps, protesting sleep, waking at night.
