    Harvs we reduced his awake time which has helped a tiny bit but he still wont go to sleep for me without rocking. She stepped us through slowly & dh was able to get him down with the shush pat method in the cot, but im still on the rocking.

    Ok. It does take time but two weeks should've made a difference. I can't remember exactly where I saw it but there's a graphic on the net which shows optimal time for sleep training. There's no point doing it when they are about to enter a wonder week for example, or when they go into their separation anxiety phase because it simply won't work.

    I wonder if he's in that phase atm?

    I was in the exact same situation as you heartstringz. I could have written your posts word for word it's actually spooky. My currently 4.5 month old dd was a nightmare. The nurses at sleep school said she was one of the most difficult babies they'd seen in a while. But after 3 days at karitane we got her into a routine and although when we left she was still difficult but greatly improved, i stuck to their advice....And it's like i have a new baby.

    The fantastic thing about sleep school is the nurses will teach you strategies but also set a routine which is just as important. You need to be committed to continuing the strategies and routine at home for continued improvement.

    Please do pursue this path. I was sceptical like you as I used to have to rock my hysterical baby to sleep..blood curdling screams every single night and day, cosleep with her on me and she'd still wake every hour to two hours screaming. After sleep school she sleeps 3 to 4 hours in her cot, wakes for a bf and goes straight back to sleep, settles with the dummy and gentle patting, has proper naps and is much happier. And so are we. Please call them and tell them the severity of your babies issues. I did this and was in within the fortnight...i'm so grateful for the help i received. I'll never forget it.

    I remember reading this blog post about sleep school. It gave a good description of what happens there. Might be good to have a read.

    Not sure if link worked, the blog is called "Domestic Divinity", I just googled "domestic divinity sleep school" and it came up.

    Even those etsy characters charge a fortune!
    I know someone who would love to help!

    Heartstringz- fill in that form woman. At least if you go, you wouldn't be wondering about the 'what if's'

    Trying to drum into DF routine routine routine. One more time for the cheap seats in the back - routine!
    So tonight we bath DS, feed, read stories - where's the swaddle?
    It's in the wash
    Right - in the dryer now?
    Ok so why is it in with a full load that will take 2 hours to dry?
    But I'm being critical!
    So I take everything out of dryer except swaddle.
    DF then lectures me that it needs a few things in it to work properly.
    Well if you knew that genius, why was I fishing a whole load out of it half an hour ago?

    I honestly think no one in my house listens to a word I say. Not even the dog.
