    An hour to get DS to sleep last night. Then constantly waking for dummy. Then early feed again before taking what seemed like forever to go back to sleep. Up at 430 and wouldn't go back to sleep. I was hoping this wakeful behavior was just a wonder week in full force but his wonder week ended over a week ago and I'm still in sleep hell. Yesterday's lack of sleep resulted in a migraine that left me feeling like I needed to vommit all afternoon. Let's hope today is substantially better. The only thing keeping me positive is a CHN visit this morning for his weigh in. I'm excited to see his progress.

    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.
    I could have written this word for word. I have no advice, but just wants you to know you're not alone. It really does sick, and I'm hoping ds2 outgrows it quickly. I am just exhausted.

    *hugs* to everyone struggling out there, it's absolute hell.

    We're into about week 8 of a few broken hours of sleep a night. I'm slowly going insane and it's causing issues in pretty much every aspect of my life.

    I feel like I can't complain though :/ people are less than sympathetic when they find out I won't use CC or CIO. I've looked into sleep specialists but I can't find any that work for us given I won't use CC. It's so sh!t.

    I get this from my dh. He has told me to suck it up. I have chosen not to let him cry so I have to deal with the broken sleep. He doesn't let ds2 cry. Just gets him up and waits for me to come and fix it.

    I recommend the no cry sleep solution by Elizabeth pantley.
    It takes time. Lots of cuddles and you really have to stick with it.
    Ds2 has other issues that stopped it working but now they are almost sorted I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
    I am here if you want to complain.
    Lots of mums in here that have listened to me so the same!

    If you have an ebook reader I can send it to you. Pm me your email address.

    Who stole my baby and replaced her with a sleeping one?! I had a successful car to cot transfer yesterday. She slept for 2.5hrs! Last night I only had to sit beside the cot while she nodded off around 7ish. She then woke at 1.30am. I was able to go in, put her dummy back in, quick pat on the bum and walk out. She then made a few grizzly noises but dropped back off to sleep.....until 6am!! This morning she only had her usual 40min power nap but slept for 2hrs this afternoon. I'm preparing myself for a rough night though

    Aw you're so sweet! I only just saw this after I bought it but thank you for the offer.
    But I have the book now, really hoping it helps! Definitely looks like it's the one for us, as soon as I saw a lot of AP parents used it I was relieved

    I have been using it for a year. If it weren't for Ds2 health at backs we would have been done ages ago. If you need help or someone to hack it out with we could start a support thread on it?
