    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!!

She is so clingy and attached to me not even her dad can settle her.

    I keep thinking I should do something again about it but I don't want to upset her and am trying to ride it out, hoping she'll improve in the next few months naturally on her own. But when it's really bad I get so frustrated too and feel like doing something!

    I completely understand what you mean about a full nights sleep. Seems like it'll never happen again! Even 4 hrs is great for me!!!!
    What is the go with these 9 month olds!?
    We've been in a pretty similar situation. I don't know how you do it with two though, looking after one child is enough for me on such broken sleep!
    We went to a MCHN sleep school at about 4 months, which helped a little but we slipped pretty easily back into feeding and cuddling to sleep, it just seems so natural to me and sooo much calmer, I got tired of battling for every 20 minute cat nap.

    Up until recently DS spent his day naps asleep on me while I was parked on the lounge, but after a bit of work he now naps in his cot, it's mostly the nights for us that are horrible now. We did have some improvement about a month ago following some advice from Karitane, but things have gone backwards again. Every time I go to lift DS up over the cot rails he arches his back and loses the plot. He gets so worked up that nothing will calm him down. I hate seeing him so upset, I usually end up in tears too.
    DS is the same as your DD too, very clingy to me and won't let my DP settle him. It's a lot of pressure and stress on us.
    I'm not even sure any of my post makes sense, too damn tired, and DP is lying next to me snoring like a bear.
    Hears hoping we all get some decent sleep tonight.

    you woke your brother up at 9pm carrying on like a right twit cos you 'didnt want' to go to bed, now Ive finally got him back down and you shove your face IN his face and wake him again then go to the bedroom howling when I tell you off!

    Im trying to get this god damned house clean ready for our freaking inspection and your stupid night time behaviors are making it impossible!
    My dd4 sounds exactly the same. She drives me insane. She has only been very difficult with bedtime over that last 6months to a year.

    This is embarrassing and shameful but my almost 4 year old is STILL a terrible sleeper. You'd think by 4 she would be able to sleep but nope not a chance. In a good night she'll fall asleep by 10.30pm! She's still awake now at 11, she just talks and makes excuses it's so so frustrating! Most nights she is still getting up and down at midnight I'm so sick of staying up all night from a 4 year old. It makes me angry. I lose my patience after 11pm, no one should be up with a 4 year old at 11pm!! It's like I've had a newborn for 4 years. She's literally never tired. She has batteries I swear!!!!!! Such a crap sleeper. I can't stand when people tell me their kids go to bed at 8pm every night, I am so jealous. I wish we had never co-slept, it has made her so dependant on me for sleeping and clingy. I feel suffocated. DP and i can't even cuddle because we have a non stop talking, non sleeping big kid in our bed!!!! Over it!!!!!

    And its not until its stupidly late and Im yelling like a mad man that he finally gives in
    This is me too it's awful. DD fights it too! I feel sorry for her that she can't settle. I've tried everything! Nothing seems to work. Even after a huge day of activities she's still buzzing. I don't know where she gets her energy from? I've cut out any sugar, tried vitamins, tried the whole winding down routine but nothing. I've just come to accept that she's just not a sleeper. I think you either have a sleeper or you don't. She was a terrible sleeper as a baby and it's just continued on. Even if I wake her up early she still can stay up all day and all night. It's madness. Her body needs a proper sleep schedule and so do I!!! Hang in there I totally hear you!!!!

    Finally!!! 11.28pm and she's fallen asleep on my shoulder in bed. Only took me laying here pretending to be asleep for the last 2 hours I miss out on so much at night by staying up with her. Can't get anything done. I so need a break at night to wind down. It's unfair

    A frigging hour and a half to get DS2 to sleep tonight and he's still not fully asleep, just sprawled across my body ready to spring awake again if I move.😣

    I've been having to fight him for every sleep for the last couple of days, it's so frustrating. And I really resent losing my whole evening to putting kids to bed. No life after 4pm, it's like I don't exist in the world after that time
