    When I had to sort out my son's sleeping, I found it really hard to tell the difference between protest and upset crying. I used to call my mum and she would listen down the phone and reassure me that he sounded cranky and not upset to her. It made it so much easier on me to not feel like i was all on my own. Are you planning on getting the nanny to help you do the settling? I reckon that would be a great use of them. Don't let them just settle him every time x

    @heartstringz you sound busy and over it tonight, but I was thinking maybe some time you could post the schedule your DS had at sleep school? I'm not a sleep school graduate or a sleep expert but some others might be able to give you some of their expert advice if they know what you are working towards? Are you trying to stick to the same schedule now?

    If only we had a bigger house. I cant get away from the screaming.

    Dh is refusing to rock him even though its at the point where we need to do whatever it takes given its now 7pm & hes had 30 mins of sleep since 1.30pm. So god knows how long the screaming is going to go on for now

    I've been reading along but haven't replied until now. I know that you don't drive but does your DH drive? I had a couple of nights when the only thing that would work was to jump in the car and drive around - DS was usually asleep in under 15 minutes.

    I know it's been said to death but you are obviously worked up which is totally understandable. I believe that it's in a mum's DNA to get anxious when their baby cries. I know that my DH can handle more crying than I can and I don't suffer from anxiety. I cannot imagine how you are feeling. Try to take a deep breath and maybe if you can (depending on how safe your neighbourhood is) go for a walk around the block or even just go to the backyard and sit for 5 minutes.

    You are not going to ruin your son's life because he doesn't get some sleep or doesn't eat what the 'professionals' say he should. Just get through the night however you can and call the psych pm'd to you in the morning.

    As hard as it is, put him in his cot and let him scream. If he's safe in his cot go outside and give yourself a break.
    YOU DESERVE IT!

    Default Sleep school update

    This list is from sleep school notes I have from being a nanny. It's a list of how to deal with a relapse. Here's a couple points summarized:

    #1-- set realistic goals

    #4-- be aware of self-talk, control irrational thoughts.

    #6--use strategies that have been successful in the past.
