He went to sleep right at the hour mark, slept for 20 mins then woke up SCREAMING again. No idea what im doing wrong. So ready to just not even bother with day sleeps he obviously doesnt want them
Sorry if this has been covered but has he been checked for silent reflux?
He got checked by the paed at sleep school & he said he was healthy
I think he's just trying it on eith you, he knows you have given in and rocked him in the past and that's what he wants. The fact that he settles for your hubby and did it at sleep school says to me that you just need to be more stubborn than him. It will take time, but just make sure you win. It will be worth it in the end!
My DS2 was awake too long before his first sleep this morning (dropping DD at childcare and I forgot her bags so had to come back home and get them- duh) and has now been catnapping and grumpy all day. But I'm just trying to go with it and hope tomorrow is better.
A 2hr sleep this morning is awesome, even if for the rest of the say he just has a couple of naps, I would say that is a win.
I'm also not sure a screaming baby is what you want but it's what you will get if you don't try and put him down.
How long was he awake before his 2 hour nap? Then how long before you tried him for his last nap? My DS is 4 months so younger than yours and his awake time is 2 hours. To he honest I think your bub needs to be up at least that long. Also try a top up feed before your put down routine - he actually sounds hungry to me.
He was awake 2 hrs before the 2 hr nap. He was awake for 2hrs & 15 mins before the last nap & was getting really cranky so I assumed he was tired. I always offer a top up feed because he wont eat solids & hes always hungry.
After that 20 minute sleep I had him up for 45 mins & he started screaming so I put him in bed, now hes just rolling around blowing rasberries & babbling & not going to sleep. So frustrating & confusing.
Now hes screaming in his cot. Will not go to sleep. Literally all I have done all arvo is either carry a screaming baby around or try to make him go to sleep. So over this. I got out the info sheets they gave me & checked them, im doing exactly what they told me & it just wont work
