    I use pedestal fan to create some background noise otherwise every little sound makes him flinch or wake.
    It varies, sometimes he just opens his eyes, in which case I just keep patting & shhing until he either starts crying or (more often these days) wakes up completely & starts rolling around his cot tryimg to play. Sometimes he cries straight away in which case I pat until he escalates then I pick him up.

    We dont have to worry too much about background noise, the portable air conditioner sounds like a truck is in the room with us, lol. Ds is used to it.

    Have you tried not patting him? I found with my friend's baby that the patting was keeping him awake. She started lying him down, he'd open his eyes, and she'd sit and wait for 15 minutes- in the room so he could see her. Usually he would go to sleep. Sometimes he would scream, so she would pick him up, shh and pat, then place him back down, and wait again. Over and over (sometimes for 2 hours) and eventually he would sleep himself.

    I was going to suggest this. It's the way my fussy Bub sleeps during the day.

    I'd be sleeping him on his tummy too! My babies settled so much better on their tummies.

    This.

    I think I remember reading in your previous posts that you were concerned about the SIDS risks associated with this. Have you looked into breathing monitors at all?

    if there is a fan in the room, the breathing monitor will not work properly. they are extremely sensitive.

    Thanks ladies! I haven't tried placing him on his tummy. Ill try it. Im ok with tummy sleeping now cause he rolls there by himself half the time. We had to turn off the motion pads on our baby monitor cause of the fan.

    I just got offered a cancellation spot at Ellen Barron, so we are going on Monday! Scared but optimistic & hopeful that it will at least give me some settling strategies & ideas on his sleep cues even if we cant totally fix the sleep issues.
