    Here's my vent for the night: 'drowsy but awake' is a load of horsesh!t! IF I can get my baby into the cot drowsy without him screaming, he just ends up rolling around and chatting to himself until he is wired and overtired and crying his head off so I have to feed him all the way to sleep....!! Grrr!

    Totally agree on the drowsy but awake propaganda!

    I get that too. Long, long blinks. Put her in the cot. Even longer blinks. Pop! Eyes open. Roll over, chatter, laugh at me. So annoying when I'm trying to teach her to go to sleep in the cot.

    Man aint that the truth. My DS is the same. He's so rarely "drowsy" but if I put in down semi awake he rolls starts scratching at the sides, then starts chatting to himself and scratching eyes eyes out with tiredness. Then you have to start all over again..

    Reading through this thread actually makes me feel a bit better.

    My DS is 9 months and just would never self settle, ever no matter what I tried. I won't do controlled crying or CIO and even if I do let him cry for a few mins he just gets more worked up and awake.

    Day sleeps are a nightmare I spend more time rocking him than he does asleep. He can have 25 mins sleep them ping! Wide awake and ready for another 3 hrs playing. Sleeping for an hour in a day nap its once in a blue moon. It's like he doesn't need the sleep.

    I have never, ever seen my kid look "drowsy" or "sleepy" every single sleep is a fight. It's exhausting.

    My DD is 12 months old now and has been a nightmare in the sleeping department! After months of spending most of my night in her room I decided to try a new tactic. I was rocking her to sleep and changed to getting her to go to sleep in her cot. It did involve letting her cry, but I stayed in the room with her. Tresillian call it parental presence method. It worked almost immediately. I sat with get until she cried herself to sleep (took approx 30 mins). Each sleep it got easier and easier. Now I put her in her cot and she goes to sleep herself with me still in the room (still working on getting out!). She stopped waking multiple times before I went to bed and slept longer overnight. She still wakes overnight, usually at around midnight and 4ish, but it is WAY better than before! I know that method is not for everyone but it worked for us! Before doing this I was desperate for sleep. My DS was nothing like this and my DH even felt done sleep deprivation this time!

    @Jackinabox what age did you start this with DD? And do you offer any verbal/physical reassurance?

    Did your DD stand up? If so did you lay her back down or did you leave her to get back down herself?
