    She hasn't slept all day and I've tried for hours to make her go down. Now she screams when I put her down, pick her up, cuddle her, pat her. She just screams. I don't know what to do

    Do you have a swing or baby carrier? When i have bad days i use these to keep us both sane and start again after next feed.... i find shes usually knackered by then, but understand how tiring and frustrating it is. We are having an ok day today as hubby is home to help. Do u have some support?

    She used to sleep in her bouncer and carrier but lately she won't in either. She will tolerate being in them for a while but then starts crying when she's had enough. Took her for a walk in the pram - she didn't sleep but at least she stopped crying...

    Omg she sounds exactly like my dd! She used to fall asleep I'm her swing or bouncer but now tolerates it for a lil while... Just enough time for me to have a breather

    Subbing too as I'm in a similar position and starting for more cot sleeps by putting him down calm but awake. Hope to hear of others experiences and will share mine too if you'd like

    Lol I feel sorry for us! No seriously it's good to know I'm not the only one struggling with it; I thought I must have been doing it completely wrong as it seems to work for everyone else!

    How does she go in the car? We often go for a drive to a shopping centre for naps. The drive puts her to sleep, then pushing her around in the pram keeps her asleep. I can get her to nap for about 1.5hr this way.

    I've also done the pat pat pat thing. .. strange question but do you stand over the cot or make eye contact? I alwats found that harder. .. so I would never make eye contact when settling. And I would sit on the floor and put my arm through the side of the cot and tap. .. and put a muslin or something overt the side so my Bub couldn't see me. It does work. .. but it took a while and I have to start again with my 6 month old as a have had s stint in hospital which ruined my routines!!!! So it's a work in progress with mine. And if she cried I would pick her up. .. cuddle till not crying then put her back down. .

    The car is a bit hit and miss but ill try it next time when she's not screaming. When she gets too overtired in the car she screams as well, sometimes I have even had to stick my boob in her mouth to get her to go to sleep while she is strapped in...
