    Yeah it makes sense. My bub is too heavy, strong and wriggly for me to rock to sleep. I even struggle to feed him while sitting up because he squirms so much, that's why I mostly feed him lying down now. At times he I calm enough after a feed to put into the cot and try to settle but it takes ages and I don't have the time or the patience most nights :/

    I feel you. None of my 5 have slept well under one year and my last boy took the longest of all. Almost two before sleeping all night.
    I guess by 6 months I was waking up 3 times most nights with them all.
    Getting them down at night was often a battle too, I felt awful about spending up to an hour and falling asleep myself while the other kids watched tv as I fed the baby to sleep.
    But we all got through it and we are about to again as I'm pregnant right now.
    I decided to stop being frustrated and just love them and enjoy the cuddles.
    Mind you it took me to baby 5 to let it go.
    Be easy on yourself, you clearly have your baby's best your priority and that pays off

    Congrats on the pregnancy bluebirdgirl-
    Wow you must be one busy mummy. Good to know they do eventual sleep through the night.
    Electric boogaloo I know what you mean about getting too heavy and squirmy. Dd is 10 kg now and I think my rocking to sleep for ages days are passing. I'm putting her in the carrier before bed sometimes now instead and that seems to settle her abit more.
    Hang in there, hope you find something that works for you :-)

    Aw thanks!
    Pretty busy. I have a few bigger gaps between so I get a bit of help from the older girls which is nice
