Ok so this is my first time posting on here as I don't want to admit we have yet another baby that never sleeps at night. I am so over it.
She's 9 months old now and it's the pits. She does the same thing DD2 used to do at the age, which is basically be awake for around 3 hours overnight every night. She wakes for a feed and won't go back to sleep. Doesn't matter whether it's 9pm, 1 am or 4am. I am soooooooo sick of it.
I am so tired and grumpy. I bring her into bed with me but she just cries. She just won't go back to sleep.
That was the best I could do. She was fed, clean, warm and I was there.
wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.
Thanks. I know we just have to get through this and I have a comfy rocking chair I sit with her and doze in while she talks and points at everything. Sleep training isn't an option as I won't let her cry and anyway we have 3 other kids she wakes.
It's ok once I'm up but geez the mornings are tough getting everyone fed and to school and dealing with a 3 year old and an anxious 5 year old.
My ds is 18 months and still a ****e sleeper. I too have given up being honest when asked about it. And I agree - advice from the childless, however well meaning, makes me want to throat punch them! If I hear "you've just got to get him to sleep" one more time I'll puke on that person!

Big hugs to everyone who's posted in the last day or so. Xxx
There also seem to be a lot of 9 monthers in the same boat as my DD!! Who has decided not to have much of an afternoon nap today as is currently standing up pushing her pram around the bedroom while I lay here on my phone on bh. Lol.
I hope we all get some frigging sleep soon!!!
Yeah, she's walking whilst holding on and letting go when standing still too early for my liking!!! Stay a baby!! Oh, wait...don't because then you might sleep! Lol
Putting her to bed early after her nap shenanigans this afternoon. Let's see how that pans out!
Good night vibes to you all :thumbup:
Well I'm in with dd again. Took me 40 mins to get her down. I went to the toilet, 5 mins later awake again.
I can hear df in the lounge with chocolate pudding.. I hope he didn't put whipped cream on mine!!
