    Default Almost 18 month old doing my head in

    So my son has this issue where he will scream blue murder when I put him down to sleep.

    He doesnt do it for df (his dad). Just me. He has been doing it for months. I am 29 weeks pregnant with bub #3 and I am just getting so irritated by it now.

    He will not sleep if we are holding him. He also screams when we change his nappy, change his clothes and if something doesn't go his way.

    I have tried every thing. From no cry solutions to cio to tizzie hall (yes I went there) even pinky mckay cannot "fix" him...

    I cannot stand it anymore. Please help. (Have seen gp and paed and there are no medical reasons as to why he does this)

    Could it be because you are pregnant? Do you talk about the new baby with DS? My DD just turned 2 when I became obviously pregnant (ie - she could see my stomach had grown and she was reminded not to jump/lie on my tummy anymore because there was a baby in there) and she suddenly started waking 3 times a night. It went on for 2 months after DS was born and then she got used to all the changes. I've read lots of other mums having issues with an older child when they are expecting...
    Aside from that - could it be his molars coming thru? I also had lots of sleep issues with DD for about a month when all 4 molars came through (17months-ish). Then she just went back to sleeping fine.

    Hmmm... food for thought with the pregnancy thing. He is pretty excited about bub though. But the molars thing I dont think is him because even with paib killers loaded to his eyeballs (because I thought it was pain of some sought and tried everything) he still loses his $&=t about everything.

    I'm beyond confused. Lol. Just so hard when df works away for 8 days a fortnight so I get screamy unhappy child for the whole time.

    (He still screams about everything bar sleep when df is here too)

    Thanks for the advice

    They are hard little creatures to work out sometimes! Must be hard with dp being away on top of being pregnant. Hope it works out for you soon

    Could definitely be the pregnancy issue. My DD (2yo) went nuts while I was pregnant - it was sooo difficult trying to deal with her on top of morning sickness, being extra tired and feeling huge. It was like she knew something was different and didn't know what was going to happen (even though we talked about it) but as soon as the bub was born, she completely relaxed back to her normal self (and adores the baby!).

    Hope it resolves soon for you!
