    SAgirl- last week one of the reasons naps were hit and miss was because he all the sudden kept wanting to be fed to sleep. That's why I posted that comment above. The books are great for a reference and outline but sometimes you just need to listen to your baby because they're not robots, ya know?

    So yes that's a change!

    Might cop a bit of **** for this but I got so far over it and so tired that DS was left to cry himself to sleep at 5.30 this morning it took 15 mins and he slept until 7.30!!!!!! Since that I have been putting him down awake and he has just been going to sleep himself he has never done this before and he only woke twice last night when I let him cry it out at 6.30 pm. The nurse while in hospital told me I will continue to burn out and it doesnt hurt a baby to cry its good for them. Before this id been holding him for sleeps during the day and settling numerous times a night.

    How long did he cry for tonight before he slept?

    Do what you feel comfortable with and what works. Sounds like leaving him for a bit worked if he self settled today.

    He didnt I was comfortable with it I simply put him in his cot after kissing him goodnight and telling him how much I love him. I popped his dummy in and walked out once he is ready for sleep he spits it out has a 10 second protest and goes to sleep

    @SAgirl this is the babybliss outline. It's pretty similar to tizzie. Note-- I've never actually read tizzie, a friend has just sent me pictures like this of her routine and some points through the book. I do think this friend has the edition that everyone gets their undies in a bunch about though because although I think her routine is fine and typically what I've done as a nanny some of the settling stuff my friend has told me about had me cringe. I think she's changed it a bit as new editions have come out.

    I like the language throughout babybliss a lot of 'around this time.' She also doesn't do any type of routine until after 6 weeks which is why I chose her book, she was the only one that pretty much said the first weeks are just doing whatever because you can't put a newborn in a routine. She just gave suggestions and pretty much said just listen to your baby. She emphasizes a about paying attention to how long they've been awake. DS can usually only last about 90 mins awake in the morning and two hours throughout the day. Any more and he's overtired and much harder to get to sleep.

    I obviously would love DS to sleep through the night, for me. But I'm trying to keep the attitude from other reading (babybliss, babysleepsite, ask moxie) that 1-3 wakings is completely normal, which is what DS does. He did a couple nights of one waking last week, one of three, the rest two and on average he's two times a night (about 11 and 4).

    Literally--- you've been through such a ringer lately I understand you needing to do whatever you need to do. Don't worry. For me, I can't do crying right now. This has a lot to do with me, I have horrible anxiety right now and him crying sends it through the roof. But also, I know he knows how to self settle, I've heard him wake and chat and fall back asleep, chat himself to sleep when he first lies down, etc. so to me, if he's crying it means he's not going to fall asleep on his own. Maybe when I get my anxiety under control I'll be more open to some crying but right now I can't really cope with it all.

    Does this mean you're home from the hospital? How is he doing?

    Eta: like I said before, I've found structuring his feeds (re tizzie or gina) to make the biggest difference but have still had days where he needed to be fed to sleep for naps etc. he's also fluffing around during feeds a lot more, getting distracted etc. so I understand him then needed to be fed again when it's naptime.

    Hugs, I know the feeling of wanting to do that... I've tried to settle DS while he's been crying very loudly and I have on occasion walked away for a couple of minutes. I haven't yet let him CIO as not really my thing. It is so exhausting though

    I ended up giving in to CC because for days he wouldn't even settle on me it was so frustrating and made me wonder why now when ive always done it this way in the end it was safer for him to cry in his cot than to cry on me. I didnt want to accidentally hurt him ive been really patient with him for this 5 months because of his reflux but now thats better I needed him to start sleeping better. Funny thing is that his naps today last from an hour to 2 hours and before when he was sleeping on me they lasted 20-40 mins!!
