    12 month regression???
    My son was a great sleeper until 6 months then started getting up 2-10 a night. We seem to sort it out and have a few good months. Now he's taking forever to go down at night and waking at 3am for hours, wide awake. At my wits end. Feel like a terrible mum for not knowing what to do. Need sleep

    Omg dh im so over you! You are so determined that ds must sleep in his cot during the day that yesterday when we were trying to get a sleep in before we had to go out you spent an hour & a half trying to settle ds in his cot with no luck until I had to intervene & scream at you to put him down in his rocker so that he actually had some sleep. He barely had 30 minutes before we had to go out, because of you.

    Then today, when we are having people over, you do the exact same thing. So now ds has been awake for 3 hours (as opposed to an hour & a half), I just had to intervene again to get him in his rocker (where he now wont go to sleep cause he's so overtired), we just ended up screaming at each other in front of ds & now we'll barely get to see our visitors cause we'll be trying to settle an overtired, losing the plot baby the entire time.

    Why can he not comprehend that we need to prioritise sleep, wherever that may be? I dont care if he wants to try for the cot but there comes a point where you just have to abort & put him down wherever.

    Ive explained that so many times but it just doesnt seem to get through.

    Massive hugs. You've been having a hard enough time without having to battle DH too. Hope he can see the bigger picture sooner then later.

    I had the same problem with dh insisting on cry it out. We agreed if I wouldn't let him cry then sleep issues were mine to deal with.
    To this day sleep is my problem and dh butts right out.
    It's works much better for me. No arguments. I say sleep time is now he walks out. Lol.

    You need to find what works for you. If dh is the problem then remove it.
    If the cot is then use what you have to. I part time Co sleep now. Side car also worked early on. It helps Ds2 feel safe in his cot.

    Heartstringz can you pop his rocker in the cot? My DS3 wouldn't sleep in his cot at first either, only slept in his bouncer. So I put his bouncer in his cot for a week then tried him in his elevated cot - it worked, he started sleeping in his cot

    @heartstringz - take advantage of your visitors! Get them to take ds for a walk while you and dh have coffee together.

    Problem im having at the moment is its just too hot for him to sleep in his rocker. In his cot he can roll around so hes not just stuck in the same place so theres air flow around him. If I sleep him in his rocker he's just bathed in sweat & im doing what I can with fans & minimal cloths etc but im really worried about him overheating in it

    Have you tried the cot mattress on the floor? My Ds2 hated the cot from the minute I put the side back on.
    Now he sleeps in a bed at night but on the mattress for naps. You may need pillows on both sides to stop the roll but you can lay down next to Bub for the first week till he gets the hang of it.
    If your bfing just lay him down awake and feed till he is asleep. Then remove the boob earlier each 3rd day. If Bub doesn't protest to much.
    Good luck hun.

    He wont feed to sleep.

    Ive tried a mattress on the floor but he wont have a bar of it.

    I hope it gets better sometime! I cant wait until I no longer have to spend all day every day fighting ds trying to force him to go to sleep, or alternatively carrying him around for hours if he hasnt slept all day & is losing the plot & wont be put down (which I cant even do anymore cause ive injured my neck).

    I cant wait till I can go out & know that he's going to have at least some sleep before we go & during the outing as opposed to none & then SCREAMING most of the time we are out. So we just dont go out. Its pointless. I dont enjoy it & neither does he, my stress levels go through the roof etc

    I wonder how much longer I have to do this for before it gets better.....

    I can't remember if I've asked you this. What happens if you just don't bother trying to put him to sleep?

    As in, will he pass out if you go for a walk in the pram? Or pass out whilst playing? Or will he cry himself to hysteria?

    My story is that for my first kid I hated being home so I was out all the time. I never bothered with putting my dd1 to bed in her cot. She had a rough routine but slept wherever she passed out, high chair. Pram, car, floor etc.

    Dd2 I made the mistake of always being home for naps and putting her in her cot to sleep. I now have 2 kids, my eldest who will sleep anywhere, any bed, surface, chair etc. And my youngest who will only sleep in her cot at 2.5yo. It's bloody frustrating.
