    Thanks! Yep, it seems to have been! I think I let her get way too tired! She was much easier last night!

    I also think she has been waking so much because she has been cold- but she won't have a blanket on her. Kicks it off as soon as I try. She always got too hot with a suit on and then a fleecey sleep suit.. and it took me until last night to think of a solution lol! (I'm so slow when I'm tired!) Singlet, fleece sleep suit. No normal suit in between! Much better night last night! derrr! :lightbulb:

    I'm scared I've got another **** sleeper, not sure how I'll handle 2 years of constant night waking with ds1 as well
    Do you have a partner to help you out on bad nights when they both wake so you can each take one to deal with?

    Ha ha the tiredness causes brain fog!!! Pleased to hear she settled well again.

    My DD self settled once during the night! Saw her on the video monitor trying to stand up in her cot and whining. I lay there trying to muster the energy to get out of bed then realised she had gone quiet and when I looked she was asleep!! Happens randomly every couple of months. Meant I had 5.5 hours without getting up til she woke again. Nice! Shame she's not consistent.

    Can I join in?

    Dd is 4.5 months and going through the ' 4 month sleep regression' I suppose. A couple of months ago she would go down for the night no problems, she now takes hours to get to sleep for the night, she will fall asleep for 20 mins, wake up again, fall asleep, wake up again etc and then will wake 2-3 times in the night and want to eat or sleep with me or her dad and it's exhausting.

    Last night she finally fell asleep at 11.30pm, and then woke up a fair few times. Most of the time she will sleep longer in my arms but I wake up so sore I have to put her back in her bed or give her to Dp so he can sleep with her.

    She had a great bed time routine, now that's gone out the window.

    We are so tired.

    Katey4 hopefully the regression passes quickly and you get your good sleeer back again, multiple night wakings are exhausting.

    I've had a gutfull of crappy sleep and am hopefully getting a referral to Karitane today. DS has rarely slept more than 20 mins during the day for the last few weeks and wakes numerous times during the night. He was awake for an hour from 1am last night, then woke up for the day at 4.30am. When we cave and bring him into our bed DS has to be snuggled against me, but constantly pulls my hair and scratches my face and neck, it drives me crazy.
    I'm a bit upset that it has gotten to this but we've really tried a number of gentle methods, we're exhausted and out of ideas.

    Dd has been really weird today- she has had 3 x 20 min naps, two in the car and has been as if normal but hyped up while awake. I have been trying to put her to sleep for over an hour now because by rights she should be exhausted! In the first twenty minutes or so she started to nod off so I put her in her cot but immediate screaming. Tried again, singing and patting for 15 minutes and she screamed and sobbed the whole time.
    I'm now on the couch with the tv on breast feeding her, hoping she'll nod off because I will scream if I have to stay in her dark room any longer.
    She is warm and she has had nurofen. But apparently all she wants is to comfort suck and run her fingernails over my chest. It's like nails on a chalkboard.
    I have absolutely no idea what's up. The very fact that I have more than one thought speaks volumes about how little I know about figuring what's wrong with babies. Could be teeth. Could be growth spurt. Could be tapping into some psychotic gene that comes from her fathers side of the family...

    This kid should be exhausted! So why is she kicking and pinching me like she has the energy of 20 raging bulls!

    Dd is the same with day naps @Nomsie, I really feel for you.

    I wasn't bothered about the day sleeping because she was okay at night, for months now it's been all over the place with both so I can't catch up on sleep with a nap during the day either.

    I think I'm kidding myself thinking it's a regression phase and it will end, especially when it's been 2 months.

    It could be worse though, I shouldn't whinge.
