O M G. DS2 woke up because he rolled into the bed rail and I went in there, rested my hand on him and HE WENT BACK TO SLEEP. No crying, no screaming, no breastfeed! Last night he slept from 9pm until 1am and I think he may have settled himself if I hadn't gone in there (but I was half asleep and just did it on autopilot). Fingers crossed we are at a turning point of some kind. Although I know enough not to hold my breath on that one...
DS1, meanwhile, happily goes to sleep his own bed but 9 times out of ten will be in with DH by the wee hours.
Anjalee, it does get better. And you'll get better at dealing with it *hugs* hope you get some rest tonight.
We had a better night last night she went down as normal at bedtime, was up at 10.30 and came to bed with me after I couldn't settle her, and she slept until 3.30 when she freaked out because she wasn't touching me, but settled down after 5 mins and slept until 5am. So I've had a decent enough block of sleep to make it through work today!
Spoke too soon last night was 8.30, 9.30, 10.30 when she came into bed with me, then 12, then 2, 3 and finally 5am. Thank god it is a long weekend here and I can try and nap my way through it!
Ds is once again now refusing to sleep in his cot during the day. Ive given up, ive tried everything under the sun & nothing works. Ive finally got him to go to sleep in his rocker for his first sleep of the day. I dont have a clip on breathing monitor so I basically have to sit here & watch him sleep. Potentially for hours cause he's exhausted.

Ds2 has been a great day sleeper since. He can hear me and the back ground noise stops him from getting startled by me doing things or leaving the room.
It took me a week to get him to sleep there but after that no problem.
Still do it at 19 months.

So it's taken just a week since daylight savings for early bird dd to start waking before 6 again (past two mornings before 530), it has been creeping earlier despite keeping bedtime an hour later.... I've been trying to avoid it but I know I'm gonna have to move bedtime early and end up with that 630pm-5am routine again
Edit: she has been whiny and difficult too as she's getting an hour less sleep argh.
