    That's good you can get abit of sleep co sleeping - co sleeping doesn't work for us :-(
    I don't have the same problem anymore but ur post title sounded just like me - feel like I've tried everything and don't know what to do anymore. Im at my wits end. My problem is that feeding to sleep doesn't work alot anymore and nothing else really works either. I'm up roughly every 2 hrs aswel.
    Dd is 7.5 mths now but she used to always do the same thing as your lo. Either wake as soon as I delatch or when she was put in the cot. What I did for months was feed her to sleep at night and then have her sleep on me for 30-60 mins roughly and then transfer when she was in a really deep sleep.
    For day sleeps she sleeps on me.

    Have you tried the pantley dance? I started doing that at about 5 months and that worked pretty good for us for awhile. Basically what I would do is feed her on the lounge til she just falls asleep, then stand and start rocking/walking round her room. I delatch her whilst rocking so that she's got the movement to distract her and she stays asleep. She protested sometimes but because she's already really sleepy the rocking would normally get her back asleep. Then I would alternate rocking/moving around with standing completely still. No pattern with timing, I just keep making the standing still parts longer each time. Then I would place her in the cot.
    Hope that makes sense- I'm pretty tired right now 😜

    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 :-)
