    Edit: she has been whiny and difficult too as she's getting an hour less sleep argh.
    Same here. DH was adamant we keep to "old times" in the hope he'd wake in the 6's. It's not happened once, except going to bed at 7pm not 6pm, so an hour less sleep. I put him to bed at 6pm when I got home from work yest and woke as usual at 5:32am. His internal clock is amazing! He didn't make a peep at 3am when DD had a bad dream and was wailing in her sleep. 😴

    Started dd's bedtime routine earlier tonight because she was mega grumpy and only had a short arvo nap. MistaaaaaAke! Still trying to get her to sleep nearly an hour and a half later- I'm exhausted, she is just mega peeved!

    Omg I am at my wits end. DD is stirring, crying out in her sleep every 10 _ 30min for hours at a time. If I don't resettle her she wakes right up and is even Harder to settle. She is asleep in my arms asleep and is crying out and wimpering and arching her back and straightening her legs. Last night it took me until 3am to get her to have any decent stretch of sleep and even then it was only 2x2hr blocks. Any suggestions?

    I feel like I have no where to go. I would say I follow AP values and every time you even broach it with health professionals its all sleep school blah blah, sleep train blah blah, it's cause you feed her to sleep blah blah. I just want some gentle sleep help not a you made your bed so cosleep in it attitude.

    Tired mumma this morning. DS was just so unsettled last night. It started from the moment he was put to bed. Waking crying for his dummy. Then waking screaming even though he had his dummy. Then up early for his feed. Then awake again an unknown amount of times for his dummy again.

    How can they be the example of perfect sleeper one day and then be your worst nightmare the next? I'm not sure who is more worn out this morning. DS or me? At least he's getting a nap this morning. All I'm getting is a visit from the MIL. That's one for the other vent thread.

    Did you try giving her some paracetamol incase it was pain causing her to keep waking?

    I've been sitting back reading this thread for a while now. I honestly didn't think I had it too bad and felt bad for all you sleep deprived mummas. The last few weeks however I have realised that I am actually in the same boat! I am currently at breaking point!

    Since very early on dd happily self settled during the day. No 'training'. That was just how it happened one day and I have just gone with it since. Night times she has always woken at a minimum 2-3 times.

    The past few weeks have been horrendous. I'm having to rock, pat, wear, sing, walk etc to get her to sleep during the day. Then she will only sleep for 20mins max. I try to resettle and she screams her head off. I've gotten to the point where I just get her up now. Occasionally she will doze back off while we snuggle on the couch but it's rare. Night times.....I dread night time Last night she finally went down at 8pm. Between 8 and 11 I had to resettle her 5 times. She woke again at 11.30 but wouldn't resettle so I rocked her in the chair. She kept pushing away from me, pinching me, kicking me. I had to walk out. I had to leave her scream. I was afraid of what I might do :'( Dh then walked in and tried for a whole 5 mins before he 'couldn't take it anymore'. He was sound asleep 5 minutes later! I gave up around 1.30am and put her in bed with me. We got a few hours of broken sleep. Better than nothing, right?

    This morning she had her usual 20min nap before waking screaming and whinging. I walked in to her room and just seeing her grizzling face angered me. I lifted her out and put her on the ground, turned and walked out. I went out to the kitchen, broke a bowl, made a coffee, walked outside and drank it. I came back in, fed her, she made me melt with her cheeky smile and funny baby babble and now I'm feeling horrible for being angry.

    Team all of dd's s&#%ty sleep habits with her 3yr old brother's need to constantly be touching me while he sleeps and several night wakings and you have one crazy, sleep deprived, touched out mumma.

    Hugs to you all.
    It's a hard job us mums have. DH doesn't get it either and will just pay with ds2 everytime he stirs just a bit. Coz he doesn't want to deal with it.
    And he falls asleep on the couch while ds2 is playing.
    If it were not for business nights I would never leave him to do it.

    I didnt this time but have before when she does it and no difference. I tried before bed and during the night both panadol and nurofen and nothing, still kept going

    Im reluctant to give it to her 'regularly' just incase it might help. Cause when she goes on like this its usually for a week ot two at a time every second night
