    That is very rude and insensitive of your GP in my opinion. I would try and see another one, we have a great GP who specialises in family health, is there someone near you like that who you could see?
    I would begin ringing sleep schools in your area anyway. Some need a GP referral and some don't but I would get started as soon as possible. The one we went to was a self referral. My only regret in taking our DD was that I didn't do it sooner!
    I really understand how you are feeling at your wits end, try and take care of yourself

    Just wanted to stop by to say my DD2 was a horrid sleeper day & night!

    She improved significantly once I moved her to a cot. We had some tough days trying to teach her to sleep, but those days were well worth it (didn't feel like it at the time).

    Here's what I did:
    - Found a routine that suited our family
    - Researched how much wake time/sleep time she should be having
    - Followed recommended steps to get her into a routine

    DD's routine is based on an eat, play, sleep guideline.

    I put her to bed at the time I want her to sleep, pat her/soothe her & shush her until she went to sleep or for an hour & a half (sleep time). I then gradually withdrew myself from the soothing, first dropped the shushing, then patted for a little bit & just kept my hand on her, removed my hand from her but put it beside her in the cot, next no hand in cot, then I removed myself entirely.

    It sounds like it will take forever, but it doesn't, it will get worse & then it gets a lot better quickly! Within a week DD was having 2 sleeps a day, usually 1.5hrs each & sleeping 12 hrs straight at night.

    Good luck, stick with it & if you can get some help from a family member/friend just having someone else in the house can help.

    The sleep school we went to was covered by my PHI. DD was admitted as the patient and I was admitted as a boarder. We would have had to pay our excess for the admission for DD, except that we have already paid one this year when she was admitted to special care after birth. Our health insurance only makes you pay once per calendar year. There was a boarding fee for me, apparently some funds cover it, ours didn't but it only ended up being $220 which wasn't too bad. So all up I think the whole thing cost us $250 (boarding fee plus other miscellaneous costs) which IMO was some if the best money we have ever spent. The sleep school should be able to tell you over the phone what the likely costs are, as it will vary dependent on your health fund.
    Good luck with your pead appointment

    So glad you are feeling a bit better. Sleep school helped us so much. My DH didn't want us to go either, but now agrees it was the best thing we ever did!
