    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.

    Ah! Right! Sorry, I never thought of that acronym.

    Heartstringz, your emotional health is just as important as your bub sleeping, if you strongly feel that you oils cope better if you didn't have to be the only one who can feed him, perhaps persist with trying the bottle. Perhaps with expressed breast milk of you have a pump so he gets used to the bottle and your milk, them slowly add formula to each bottle until he's fully on formula.

    I'm only suggesting this as you've indicated you would be happier if someone else cold feed him whenever possible. If you're dead agains FF please ignore this advice.

    Sorry yes I meant exclusively breastfed. Pumping is just too difficult at the moment, I barely get the time to do anything, let alone pump.

    What are your feelings on formula feeding or even mixed feeding?

    I'm sorry your still having so much trouble hun.
    Just to put it out there. Please ignore it if you are not ready.
    Have you tried solid food? Avocado is a great first food for last minute no prep.
    It may just be time for your little one. Just a tea spoon one day and see how you go.
    It isn't a quick fix but you may find Bub a bit more settled in a week or 2 of starting solids.
    Hugs. I wish there was a magic fix for you.

    A-squared im fine with mix feeding or formula.

    DueinAugust, we tried him on solids but he wouldnt eat any of it, just spat it all out, so I dont think he's ready yet. Will try again soon

    I desperately need some advise if you ladies can help.

    Dd is 11 months and has always been a not so good sleeper but recently due to a massive change in circumstances I am now living with my parents whilst my partner and Sd are staying at my ILs, until the end of next month at least.

    Which leaves me sharing a room with Dd, at our old house she had her own room and obviously my partner was there so if we were having a particularly rough night with her then we would take turns in settling her etc.

    She seems easier to get to sleep at night (I just give her a cuddle and pat and she will fall asleep in my arms and then I'll put her in her bed) but a couple of hours later will wake up again and then I'll have to try and do the same thing but usually it's harder.

    Then in the middle of the night she will wake up for 2+ hours and the problem is I share a wall with my parents bedroom and they work full time, I do not want her crying to disturb their sleep at all so I do everything in my power to avoid it which leaves me awake for hours trying to shush a baby.

    She will no longer fall back asleep after a bottle, she will happily drink it and then get up wanting me to pick her up, she can't lay in my bed because she crawls around constantly, she won't lay in my arm and that patting doesn't work in the middle of the night for some reason.

    I'm honestly at a loss, when we had our own house if It got to the point that my partner and I were up for hours and exhausted we would let her cry and she would fall asleep ( I could tell the difference between her being tired and distressed, if she was distressed I would get her out) but that was if we were at our limits.

    She's always slept a lot worse at other people's houses and I've also been taking her to my ILs as well. So her routine in obviously out the window and add the fact she just learnt to walk, she's all over the place.

    Do I wait it out because of all the changes occurring or do I try and find a solution, I am a lot more exhausted then usual because I have to do it on my own.

    I would think that with the change and learning to walk that it might be time to drop back the last nap of the day by half an hour. If she is up and awake in the middle of the night it could just be the thing.
    The only other suggestion I have is talk to your parents. If letting her cry for a few nights to settle in them see how they feel. You might be surprised at how much they will help.
    Good luck.
