    I never went to sleep school but went to a day service run by child and youth health. Sleep school has an added benefit that if it works while there, you get a chance to reset his natural sleep rhythms. At the moment he's perpetually overtired from not getting enough sleep. Sleep school should give him the sleep he needs while you're there. Then when you get home, you won't have an overtired baby that you can get into a nice little routine that should help.

    Have you gone on the cancellation list? Also the good thing about sleep school is they have paediatricians who rule out any health or medical issues first as sleep training won't wit if there's an underlying health issue. Am I right in saying he hasn't been to a paediatrician yet? I can't remember.

    I just wanted to add Heartstringz that I never hd to leave my DS to cry once at sleep school. Not all sleep schools empty cc or cio methods. Don't assume that is going to be the only way your DS will repond. Big hugs. Xxx

    Ive watched the videos on the sleep school website. They either do settling in arms, which is basically what we are doing already, or they do 'responsive settling' which involves leaving them in their cot for a period of time before going in & reassuring them, which is exactly what I tried this morning. So I honestly dont see the point.

    Hang in there Heartstringz. Not all sleep schools are about letting them cry it out.
    Right now he is so tired he needs to reset his body clock and this is what sleep school with help with along with tips for you regarding his tired signs and cues.
    Do you have a friend who can do a night and you can get some time away?
    Did he settle for the nurse?
    If I am near you I will happily help out and give you a break.

    The point is he needs sleep and you can not keep going like this.
    It might take a week or more at sleep school hun, one sleep isn't going to fix it xx

    But did you read this part @heartstringz? This is an excellent point. It will be like pressing a giant reset button. Even if you take away just one strategy that will help you then it will be worth it. And if he is able to get sleep, then you will see it is possible and that should give you some extra juice in the tank to persevere.

    You can't keep going like this. I wish I could help you.

    I just dont want him screaming hysterically for hours till he physically cant scream anymore. I dont think thats fair on him. But if he gets that hysterical at home after 15 minutes then thats what is going to happen at sleep school.

    I love vista print! They just don't do the magical linen and lace folded pocket invitation suite I now have my heart set on hahaha!

    I would DIY but I'm not crafty at all and I was left unsupervised with a hot glue gun, I'd end up a red hot gluey mess!

    Even those etsy characters charge a fortune!
