    I just can't take it anymore. I've been trying to get DS to go to sleep for hours but every time I put him in his bed he loses it. I had to walk out and have a sob while he screamed and screamed. He's finally down but could wake up at any moment.
    A couple of months ago we worked so hard to get really good day naps and for about 6weeks it was awesome, but suddenly he decided day naps were overrated and I've been fighting for weeks to get even 20 mins a day out of him. I couldn't do it anymore and went back to holding him so now I have no time to myself and can't get anything done.
    I try so hard to be a good mum and to be patient but I just feel like a massive failure.
    Sorry about the pity party, just need to vent I guess.
    My DD is a lot like this. I have learnt though that it really isn't forever. My boys were terrible sleepers too. Now they go down very easily, and whilst they wake early in the morning, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for them sleeping all night through. (They're 5, so they should be though lol!)
    I know what you mean about no time to yourself. I really do! But as your DS gets older, he really will be more receptive to doing it by himself. I'm not sure how old he is, but between 9-12 months they are learning that they are their own people, separate from their primary carer. My plan with DD, is to leave it for now, and rest when she does. I read a book or use my phone for FB or BH or even nap when she does. I will revisit the issue at 12 months.
    If I am still finding it really hard, I will revisit at 14 months. And so on and so on. Definitely will be putting my foot down at 18 months though. I definitely want to have her weaned and sleeping in her own bed before she is two! lol

    Thanks Nomsie, it's just nice to know I'm not alone and this isn't forever. I guess I'm panicking a bit because I go back to work next month and I need him to sleep in a cot for naps. I'm really not looking forward to going back to work as it is, if it's tough on DS (10 months) too it will be miserable. DP is putting a bit of pressure on me too and has told me I've caused DS to be too reliant on me to sleep. I just wish he'd give me a break sometimes and offer to watch DS while I go off and do something for myself.
    Thanks for giving me hope that terrible sleepers can turn around!

    No just scared of everything possible. We are taking her to see a paed we want her tested for add and autism. Not sure what form of autism but she certainly has some similar traits to her older brother. He has aspergers on the lower end of the spectrum. Wasn't diagnosed until he went to live with his father.

    Argghhh DS (19 mths) woke at 12.30 then again at 3am and every hour from there. I'm exhausted and of course it's a work day for me.

    DH and I have discussed lately night weaning him as it's getting to be a bit beyond a joke how much he feeds overnight and I want my body back.

    But it means DH going into him when he wakes during the night as if I go DS gets hysterical if I won't feed him. Whereas he's just a bit whiny for DH on the odd occasion he's gone in.

    Spoke to DH this morning about the crappy night we had. Asked him when he thinks we could start because he's the one going to have to get up. Only response he gave me is that I'm still going to wake up as I'll have to wake DH as he doesn't hear DS. When I told him that's fine because it will hopefully just be temporary then DS will sleep through the night I got no response.

    I really feel like he doesn't want to do it and just expects me to deal with it. But it's our child, we both chose to have him yet I'm the only one who's life has really changed.

    I feel so unsupported right now and that I'm just going to be feeding forever and never sleep a decent night again. :'(

    That's really unfair. He just needs to step up and do it, start on a Friday night and offer him a couple of sleep ins to sweeten the deal. Not that you should have to though!
    I can see myself in the same position in a few months time with my little booby monster!

    Last night Ben was up from 2am till 5am. Squealing and carrying on the whole time. Then I had to get up at 6 and go to work, and I didn't sleep after 5, so been up since 2. Yawn.
