    @Scuba Gal. Has he started crawling yet? I going my two had scrappy sleep when they were learning to crawl and once they worked that out they slept fabulously as they exhausted themselves out.

    The other suggestion is to feed them to sleep lying down and then leave them on a mattress on the floor.

    Or the pram. I used to occ walk both girls to sleep.in the pram and just park it in the house. Or if bad weather just push the pram over a coat hanger in the hallway.

    Hugs. Been there. It's tough but you are doing great. Babies pick up on your angst so if you are both getting frustrated then call it quits and go chill and watch a movie.

    As most of you are aware I'm a gentle (mostly) child led parent. I've fed, patted, cuddled my kids to sleep. I've held their hands, sung to them, walked them in their pram, held them all night as needed. They have never cried themselves to sleep and they have never been denied a hug or cuddle.

    My big girls (3&5yo) can easily put themselves to sleep. I hug them, tuck them in and tell them I'm in my room if they need a hug. They go to bed at 7/7.30pm most nights and wake 5.30/6am. They nap every day 1-2hrs. No crying, no dramas and no tears.

    I now have a 7wk old. I'm parenting her in the same way.

    So big hugs to all you mums & dads out there who wish to keep parenting gently. You are not beating a rod upon your back. You are not setting yourself up for a lifetime of bad sleepers. You most of all are NOT a bad parent. You are attending to the NEEDS of your child.

    Hugs to all of you. I've had times where I wanted to pull my hair out from sheer exhaustion. I've had times where I've cried myself to sleep from frustration. I've even walked out of the house screamed and then walked back in.

    But those days pass.

    Sorry to derail a little
    @Rose&Aurelia&Hannah - I just wanted to thank you for your posts. You frequently voice opinions that are similar to how I am parenting my DS. I have often had people "offer advice", which is completely contradictory to what I am doing, and makes me question whether my instincts are all wrong and I will be forever (insert horrible thing here). For some reason usually when that happens you'be only recently posted something relating to whatever it is I am currently beating myself up over. You've been unknowingly keeping me grounded and squashing the anxious voices in my head. So, thank you!

    Default Sleeping Like A Baby

    Everything got better today! DS had three naps, and went to bed (admittedly with a bit of a fight) by 8pm which is much earlier than he's been going to bed lately, and he's still asleep! I'm expecting him to wake up in 45 minutes meaning we are back to his predictable three hour blocks 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    I think all the trouble of the last few weeks was the cold and then the fever he got with his 6month injections.

    Such a happy bubba I'm so glad he is back on track.

    He even ate some food at dinner from a spoon that he used himself!

    Thanks all for the support. I'm sure I'll be hanging around here but gosh it's good to have a good day after so many rough ones.

    My almost 4 year old is back to sleeping like a baby and only mummy back rubs get her back to sleep. She's going through a big change in her life at the moment with a new child care centre and starting kindy next week = less time with mum.

    Perfect timing for me @misskittyfantastico. This has been a rough week in our house. Dd has gone from waking 3-4 times over night to 8+ times a night this week. I'm so tired I'm walking into walls. 😢Come on my people, tell me I'm not alone in my exhaustion!
