    Jealousy is normal hun. I have had to get used to it.
    Ds2 isn't talking yet. Cue no mothers group Jealousy. I don't go anymore. I got sick of the advice. You don't read enough. You don't talk to him.
    You know your Bub best hun. Please just find what you're comfortable with and tell everyone else nothing. No one has a perfect Bub. No matter what they tell you. They will have bad nights to. It's just most mums don't talk about it with a mum that's falling apart. They like to put on a brave face and tell you it gets better. Some do it to make you feel bad but others just don't want to make you feel bad for them when your already having your own Issues.

    I honestly wish I was near by so I could come and take over and give you a break. I really worry about the stress you are feeling @heartstringz. I would do it in a heartbeat. I really hope he naps for you soon. Xxx

    If you need to put him in his cot for 5 min it won't kill him. Get yourself a sandwich. Make a coffee. If he is screaming for you at least your there. But you do need a break.
    Is there anyone closer by that could come over for a bit and help?

    @heartstringz the sleep consultant I had suggested setting myself a limit of how long I'd be willing to try settling for. For me it was an hour before my head exploded. So if he's not asleep after an hour (or very close to it) then I would get him up again.

    If he cries a lot anyway I would just go about my business. You have to look after yourself and eat. He won't die if you leave him for a little while. He's still learning that you'll be back, but he will learn.

    Trying to settle for 4 hours would do me in, I think. I can imagine how bad you must be feeling.

    How old is bub now heartstringz? At 6 months old it's the age where controlled comforting can start. Gentle methods clearly aren't working for bub, but I would still rule out medical issues. I know you have been to a GP, but quite frankly, they can be useless. I'd recommend a referral to a paed.

    Also a mum in my DIG has taken her DS to an osteopath and after 2 visits has already noticed a difference, so that's something else to try.

    If it makes you feel better my DS has only slept 1 hour since 6am too. By this stage almost nothing works as they're so over tired. He's currently upright asleep on my chest though so I'm not moving an inch until he's been asleep at least 1 hour so he doesn't get even more tired and my DD is going to be up by then too so I have to put him down then. I know you have a neck problem, but this position isn't putting an strain on my neck, maybe you could try this too?

    Thans A-Squared. He's 5 months old. I really didnt want to do controlled crying but if this doesnt improve in the next month I dont think I have much choice

    He's finally asleep in his rocker but will only stay asleep if its rocking. It doesnt rock itself so imsitting rocking it non stop. Hopefully ill get an hour out of him

    No one ever really wants to do CC, but parents use it when at their wits end and it sounds like your DS is going to cry either way. You can always do really short intervals like 2, 3, 4, 5 minutes at a time.
