Does this sound like a sleep regression to you? If so how long will it last?
My 1 year old used to sleep through. Now hes started waking overnight for a breastfeed (thats not a problem for me, i can deal with that).
After this feed i put him back down drowsy but awake & he goes back to sleep. Then he wakes up again 30 mins to an hour later & no amount of responsive settling will work - he has to be patted back to sleep. Then he wakes again 30 mins to an hour later & has to be patted back to sleep. Then again & again for the rest of the night.
My husband & I are taking it in turns to lie on the floor in his room after the initial waking so we can pat him back to sleep every 30 mins to an hour until morning.
We are all exhausted & i feel really sorry for ds cause hes never been a great day sleeper so hes not even getting to catch up on much sleep then. Not to mention someone's stupid dog keeps waking him up from day sleeps if we do get him down (& conveniently the dog goes silent for a few weeks as soon as i dob to the Council so i cant even do the noise diary).
His cot wont fit in our room & only a foam mattress will fit in his room, cant fit a bed in there. Sleeping on the foam mattress is causing havoc with my neck (ongoing neck issue) & meaning im having neck-induced migraines regularly which is another thing i dont really need at the moment.
Cosleeping does not work for us.
Anyone have any tips to get through this without cosleeping?
