    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?

    Thats what I was doing. He finally screamed himself to sleep in the rocking chair in my arms but hes not sleeping well, were both sweltering so im guessing he'll wake again soon

    When you say he won't take a bottle, you mean of formula? He's obviously okay with EBM out of a bottle, so I assume that's what you mean.

    Which formula did you try? Perhaps it was just the taste he didn't like? Maybe you could try a different type and have a friend or family member give it to him so he doesn't smell your milk and expect that from you - which is often why they refuse formula.

    Or you could express a bit more often and do the same - have someone else give it to him and you can go out and get some fresh air, or have a sleep, sit in another room and eat a decent meal?

    I suspect she meant exclusively breast fed? I've noticed a lot of people saying their bubs are EBF when they are bf, not realising EBF really means expressed breast fed.
