    Hi,

    We had a shocker of a night last night. We moved Ds1 from his bassinet to cot, but still in our room and he was so unsettled last night. From 1 till 3:45 this morning he just would not sleep and cried most of that time. We thought it would help putting him in the cot as he has outgrown the bassinet and he would keep hitting the sides.

    This morning, he fell asleep okay in the cot but then woke up 40 minutes later, could see he was still tired, but he just would not settle.

    Ds1 is also almost 3 and he has been extremely hyper this morning (cabin fever) so feeling very drained!! Vent over!!

    Oh no, that sucks! I still have DS in the bassinet as I bought a bigger rocking one, I wonder what is the best time to move him to a cot... I don't want it to be hard! Haha

    He is also still in our room which is convenient on these freezing cold nights.

    I haven't read all the replies so sorry if I am rehashing something but have you tried a little bed inside the cot. Google snuggle beds to see what I am talking about but there are many different kinds. It might help.

    He still woke for 3 feeds though. But he also slept through till 8!! So did I thanks to DH. I fed him both boobs at 5 or so though, I normally only do 1.
    My ds needed his arms up too. The love to dream was great.

    Mmm here's something new... Every time I've tried to put DS down for his sleeps today hrs cried hysterically I haven't changed anything apart from the wrap but I've now reverted back to the ergo in case that's what's upsetting him nd he's still cried

    He's currently sleeping next to me on the bed.

    He does have a bit of a runny nose and DS1 has been sick so maybe DS2 has picked it up?

    Probably

    I just want to cry. I really wish I was dead sometimes. I just cannot cope with two kids. I'm tired and things seem to be getting much harder, not easier

    That sucks! I remember it well! Can I make a suggestion? When bubs cry hysterically like that and doesn't then sleep long, it sounds like a 'schedule' issue. Mot that you have to have a schedule as such, but bub could be either over tired, or not tired enough.

    If you don't want to follow a schedule from a book, maybe look at the tresillian website, or even keep a log of when he feeds, when he actually falls asleep (not when you start to settle and when he wakes.

    I also started waking at the same time every morning about 4 months old with DD so we could re-set her body clock, which we wouldn't have dreamed of doing before the 4 month regression. But sleep cycles really are the key to getting back on track after the 4 month sleep regression.
