    Ok I hoped not to join this thread but I always knew it was inevitable.

    Dd2 still won't sleep through. She is 2 (27 months) and wakes up around 1.30 am at which point she ends up co-sleeping until about 7 am. Well actually she tosses and turns and kicks and scratches and sucks her dummy really loud in my ear. The list goes on.
    @Nomsie actually inspired me to call a sleep helpline about the issue. Their advice was simply throw a mattress in dd2 room and for me to sleep in there when dd2 wakes.

    My vent :

    That's not my issue. She isn't co-sleeping friendly as it is. How will that help her actually sleep better! If she slept well while co sleeping then yeah but all co sleeping does for us is stop her from screaming the house down at night. The lack of sleep is affecting my mental stability, my and dp relationship, all relationships within the house actually, energy levels and so much more. I need a good night sleep regularly. Dp and I had a night away alone, the first since dd2 was born, and I sleep like a teenager. it was great. If I ask a professional for help then I really do need help because I don't like asking for it as it is. It seems when I ask for professional help it falls on deaf ears.

    Haven't read the thread, just the topic, and wanted to tell you all that last fortnight I went 9 nights straight with ZERO sleep. I mean none. Omg. We had worms and gastro going through our house, along with the fact my DS doesn't ever sleep anyway. Hahah. You know what's weird? I barely even felt tired really. But then the night I finally did get some sleep, when I was woken at 3am the next morning, I felt it then! Zombie much!

    I really hope this is just a phaze ds is going through. I have had about 8 hours sleep since Monday night. May not be major to some but I am not coping. Dp is complaining he will burn out if he does not get better sleep yet he wont go to the guest room. I spend most of my night sitting in the rocking chair with ds asleep in my arms because as soon as I put him down he wakes. I have done c everything the child health nurse has suggested but nothing has worked. I go back to work in 2 weeks and I dredding it even more if ds is still not sleeping. Dp wants to give him panadol overnight to make him sleep but I don't know if pain is the issue for his waking.

    Yep DS is having about 3 hour's broken sleep a night! And won't sleep more than 20 mins every 3 hour's during the day. I've gone nuts already.

    I'm so use to rocking back and forth with him in my arms I now do it after I've attempted to out him down anyway. Lol makes me look even more crazy.

    That sounds pretty major to me. 8 hrs sleep since Monday is terrible! You poor thing. Does his cry sound like he's in pain? If not I doubt he needs panadol but won't hurt to try it once. Will do him no harm.

    When my DD becomes unable to be put down in her cot I resort to the pram. I Put her in when asleep on me, she wakes briefly but pushing her back and forth sends her back to sleep. Then I keep her next to my bed until she wakes. Worth a try?
