    As I said worst advice I was given.
    My reason for following this was 2 fold. I was to tired myself and my boy had other issues.

    Now ive just been trying for over an hour to get bub down for a sleep & he seems very awake. His previous sleep was only 30 mins & 2hrs awake time is always too long in that situation cause he screams the place down,& same with an hour & a half. But obviously 1 hour awake time isnt right either

    I guess ill just take your advice DueinAugust & just give up on bothering with all day sleeps & just buy a pair of industrial ear muffs to drown out the screaming & carry him around all day. God I hate this. I dont even know why I had him......

    Massive hugs... ive read through a lot of your posts and can see you are having such a hard time.
    I think our LO's are roughly the same age.. I have trouble with DD and day sleeps sometimes not as often as you however. With DD she shows no tired signs ever, I clock watch. At the moment her awake time is 1 hour from when she wakes up including feed and play.. have you trird maybe 1 hour and 5 mins then try get him to sleep? If that doesn't work stretch it out to 1 hour 10mins and so on... I know with my DD if she is awake for anymore than 1 hour and 15mins she is a nightmare. Im stilling wrapping DD as well and she has dummy. Is your LO still wrapped? I really hope you can catch a break soon. Xo

    When my DS was a similar age he was a catnapper too. He slept for 45mins and then was awake for 45mins. Much longer than that and he was a nightmare to get down. I think it could be worth trying a shorter awake time.

    Some babies don't have tired signs like I said. How old is he?
    Maybe try 1 full hour from when he wakes up including feeding and play time. Make going to sleep as simple as possible. With DD I make sure her nappy is clean, wrap her in a muslin wrap, put her dummy in her mouth and carry her while gently patting her and sshing. I put her in her cot with white noise and pat her till shes comfortable and walk out. I don't speak to her or look her in the eye the whole time. If she grizzles o give her a bit to see if she self settles and then go back put her dummy in mouth a gentle pat and walk out again. I make it as unstimulated as possible. Hugs xo

    I don't get it. Other babies seem to get better at sleeping and dd just seems to get worse. We've been up for two hours now. Everytime I manage to resettle her she wakes again five minutes after I put her down. I just want to cry.

    I'm not sure how old Ds2 was but at 22 months he is no closer to sleeping through the night.
    The best I can hope for is 3 hours at a time. @BettyV, @heartstrings, @LiterallyNoOne you can email sleep help at a website called Dimples. Dorothy is great and helped me with to the point info. Good luck.

    Thanks @DueInAugust. I think I was just having a middle of the night overreaction. Dd is not quite 5 months and some nights she sleeps quite well (eg a 5 hour stretch followed by 2 shorter stretches). I think the bad nights have to do with gas but I can't figure out what causes the gas. :-(
    I suspect last night's tantrum (mine not hers) was mostly because I'd spent the day with a friend whose baby is the same age as Dd and sleeps through the night. Cue the irrational jealously!
