    The screaming doesn't seem to effect my DH either, actually half the time I don't think he even hears it.
    Heartstringz will he let you rock him until he is calm then transfer to the cot?
    I usually aim for self settling for the first sleep of the day, but if that hasn't worked I think you just have to do what you've have to do to get some sleep into them.
    Have you got him to take a bottle yet? And how are the solids going?
    I'm at the point now where he doesn't take a bottle, not eating much in the way of solids and I'm thinking about going back to work soon- oh the joys!

    Nope wont let me rock till calm then transfer, it seems to be all or nothing.

    Yes thats my theory too - try responsive settling for his morning nap then do what i have to do after that. Dh just thinks we should try responsive settling every sleep (including in the evening if he's had minimal to no sleep all day) & it just doesn't work.

    He takes water in a sippy cup now & will take a small amount of ebm/formula from dh. He was going well with solids but now suddenly he's not eating it again. So im assuming hunger is also affecting his sleep.

    Thats good he's starting to eat and drink more, when does he start childcare?

    He starts in a couple of weeks. Im a lot less worried about his food/fluids at daycare now but still worried about his sleep as i cant imagine the childcare staff will have time to rock him to sleep.

    He'll probably settle better for them, babies are often very cheeky with their parents but adapt well in different environments

    Poor ds. I left him with dh & went to the other end of the house, given dh was the one who woke him up. Ds is now crying in the bath (normally loves the bath) cause hes so exhausted. it makes me sad listening to him cry. Hopefully he'll breastfeed to sleep this evening, fingers crossed

    Try breastfeeding/rocking/patting to sleep until bub is very drowsy but not actually asleep. Then slowly increase the awakenesa for each nap. Habits that are introduced during a regression are very hard to break - I can see why your DH is worried. I can also understand how you are frustrated.

    5am seriously? Just because he went down easily last night does not mean after waking a few times that you get to get up at 5am!
