    Default Haven't had a night this bad in a while...

    So 16 month old DD has been awake pretty much since 11pm. Screaming. DH did his best to let me sleep as I work full time (in a full on job) but I'm awake now and can't get back to sleep! Tried everything, including the dozens of strategies we learnt at Masada 2 months ago, all to no avail. Then tried on the things you're not supposed to: co sleeping (made her more upset), bottle, lotssss of cuddles, even let her pat the cat! Nada.

    Just venting I guess. She's never been a great sleeper but this is the worst night we've had in over a year. :-(

    Is she unwell? Perhaps something that's not obvious like an ear infection? Does she have a temp? Hope she settles soon!

    My first thought was ear infection too - when DD was younger we had a horrible night of full on screaming that nothing would help. It eventually stopped and she slept but a gp check the next day showed a perforated ear drum. Have you tried some panadol/neurofen to see if that helps?

    Thanks ladies, after several bad nights (and days tbh) she came up in a rash and now things seem to be slowly getting back to normal. Dr said its a virus, apparently seeing a lot of it around at the moment. :-/

    We had started to panic that all our hard work at sleep school was unravelling!

    Poor bubba (and poor you!)

    Hopefully she is on the mend and her sleeping will improve for you again
