    Has bub fed during that time? Have you looked up the average awake times yet? Have you managed to get help for your anxiety? Have you asked your GP/MACH nurse about sleep school? The status quo cannot continue, that's just too bloody rough for you.

    Yes Vicpark, all I did this morning was feed him, change him & try & get him to go to sleep. Ive looked at awake times, I think 1.5-2 hrs is good for him. Im hoping to see my psych again soon once my sister gets some free time to look after ds - dh has too many deadlines to take time off work before xmas.

    Heartstringz I know you have received a lot of advice and tried probably everything. You are doing a great job! One thing that works for my DD is covering her eyes. She is soooo alert and it doesn't matter how tired she is DD will still be looking around but once I cover her eyes she will fall asleep. Might be worth a shot if you haven't already tried it.

    Seriously dd, waking up 8 times then being wide awake at 5am IS NOT COOL. I guess I shouldn't complain, it's a half hour sleep in from yesterday.

    All ive done since 7.30 this morning, apart from feeds & changes, is rock, bounce, walk, pat, shhh, sing everything under the sun to try & make ds go to sleep. He wont & its now 11am.

    Honestly im ready to just tell dh to come home from work & then just walk out. If ds would take a bottle I would have done it by now. The only reason I havent left him with his father is because he is ebf & therefore it wouldnt be fair on him..

    God I just want my old life back.

    Massive hugs @heartstringz. The only thing I can think of to try to make you feel a bit better is that this won't be forever. It probably feels like it though.

    Did you try rocking him to sleep in your arms while on the rocker chair like the last time you had success?
