    I think I need to join in this thread. I am zombie mum.

    DS2 is 1 next month and still sleeps like a newborn..the longest he has ever slept for in a block is 4 hours and that was months ago. He wakes anywhere between 30 mins-2 hours after he falls asleep. He only cat naps during the day and that's only in the car or if he feeds and falls asleep on me. I have resorted to bed sharing at night as he wants to feed all night long (feel like a human pacifier). That, and if I put him in his cot he screams absolute blue murder..and doesn't let up or calm down. He works himself up into a massive state where he's almost hyperventilating and sobbing (in a matter of minutes) and it doesn't matter what I do, he doesn't calm down until he's out of the cot and being held (and even then it takes a good 15-20 mins to get him breathing normally).

    I have a 2 year old as well and he's always been a great sleeper so this is totally foreign territory to me! My husband works away 3 weeks at a time so dealing with this on my own a lot which isn't fun.

    I have no idea what to do, so am booked into a sleep centre next month. I can't go on in this sleep deprived state as I feel like I'm such a grumpy and horrible person and it's not fair on either of the kids or my husband.

    Be nice to talk to others with similar problems and know I'm not alone

    Hey hun. You're not alone.
    My 15 month old is the same.
    I get 2 hours at night in blocks but no more than an hour during the day.
    I have just moved him out of our room as I think our snoring was not helping.
    But no. No improvement.
    I did fix the screaming when I poor him down and he will start to lay down on his own but I still have to feed to sleep.

    I get him to play for half an hour in his cot 2 times a day.
    He gets one play with his brother (6) beside the cot playing with him.
    The other is before bed with lights out, night light on and music toy playing. We have Scout.
    We then play lay down and tuck in with his care bear. Till he starts staying down for a few min at a time.
    I don't touch him from then on just talk soft and reassuring. Constant like the music or he gets upset.
    That's as far as I get he gets sleepy and wants booby. So I feed and walk till he is out like a light then I can put him down.

    OMG my five year olds were up at 4:30 am! I gave them two warnings, the third time I took one into my bed to sleep with his Dad (because I'm currently bed-sharing with DD- a whole other vent- I miss my snuggles with my man!) and he bloody had the audacity to come in to me 30 minutes later and demand I apologise for moving him! Couldn't believe the balls of it!

    So that of course woke DD, so today is going to be fun! I should have sucked it up and just gone to the dawn service, I was up early enough.. just didn't want to take DD out in this cold weather so young.

    Oh no Nomsie that's awful! At least DH is off work today I'm assuming so you're not managing the kids alone. Can you have a nap?

    I know it's normal for a 3 months old to wake for feeds but he woke at 1.30am and stayed awake!!!

    DF was transitioning into night shift tonight, so was in bed from lunch onwards. But, I lay in bed with DD so she can sleep (won't sleep on her own, have I mentioned this new development in the thread? Either in bed with me or in my arms, no cot!) so I sort of rest up while that happens!

    Oh god this is my DD lately I used to be able to fix everything with boob but that seems to be waking her up and she just wants me to sleep with her. She doesn't think she needs to sleep yesterday she had 1/2 an hour the wholeeee day!

    Dd averages 60-90 minutes of day nap time for the whole day. Could be 2 or 3 catnaps. Drives me batty lol!

    I figure what is the point in fighting to change it right now though? She is snack bang in the middle of the separation anxiety phase and until she has learned that I will always come back trying to improve her sleep habits would be akin to pushing poo uphill.

    And, thrush be told.. I am actually used to her being my 24/7 buddy, and those few precious moments I have without her are beginning to feel weird. How sad is that?!

    Haha how old is she? My dd is not yet 5 months and half hour for a 4month old is ridiculous! The strangest part is she is happy as anything without it. I mean she laughs talks, rolls around, plays and everything without a whimper then it's a bit of food a bath and she is in bed for the night by 6ish. No protests.. It drives me bonkers and in ever get anything done but I've also stopped trying to make her it just doesn't work
