    No i didn't get up, dh did by himself. But we only have a tiny single story house so i could still hear ds screaming which prevented me going back to sleep so i just lay in bed awake listening to him crying

    No he wont drink ebm at all. He drinks formula though, maybe we could do that with formula (reduce the quantity gradually).

    Default Tips for night weaning

    Dh sees it differently though & i dont feel like arguing about it with him
    I just want to say that short of physically holding you down (which as you know is abusive), then your DH can't stop you from feeding at night if you choose to. I think you have every right to tell him to eff off :-)

    I personally think it's worth fixing/changing one behaviour at a time for your own well-being. If you are struggling with feeding/changing during the day then perhaps the night weaning can wait.

    It's good to hear that the eating is getting better. Hang in there.

    I'd recommend this. Either reduce the quantity or water it down until it's just water.

    Invest in some earphones, and a white noise app and listen to some beach waves or a rainforest or something calming. You won't hear a thing!

    We did cold turkey plus CIO and they soon learnt to sleep through with no night bottles.

    Good luck

    He's completely taking going down in cot for his first block 7pm-12. Then from then on its chaos. Hysterical!! He ends on mattress in floor. He's only having water. I've cut water to 100mls now (from 240mls).

    I got so flustered last night as his cry gives me anxiety and I get angry. I know I shouldn't but he makes me mad. I let him CIO. But he vomited. I felt awful. So awful. Why won't he sleep 😥 why does my DD sleep and not him? He won't let my DH near him he gets separation anxiety now from me and screams MUMMY. I feel suffocated because before DH could settle him at least when I thought it was too much
