@Minib - scoff and scull, yep familiar with that method!! I had to sit in a chair and pat. He wouldn't sleep while walking or rocking while pram was still. Sigh. Try again tmr hopefully. Just gotta keep trying.
See with dummy sometimes he needs it sometimes not. Middle of the night and first sleep in the morning always self soothe no problems. Go figure! I don't know.
@bbhope oh your friend is lucky. It depends on time of year def. is your son talking lots now? Our boy started talking lots and the last few days has been screaming really loud instead of just talking. Also grunting then scream and yell. So loud! I'm like no need to shout!
