    I've been following a bit as well as your DS sounds very similar to mine.

    Just on the pram thing. My DS too would settle heaps easier if I took him out shopping aswell because he was in the pram he would nod off without the usual screaming before hand.

    We are now on holidays for 2 weeks and I was stressing because we wouldn't have the glider chair with us and I was concerned about getting him to go to sleep.

    However since we have been away he has been an angel! No dramas whatsoever and it's because we only have the pram to get him to sleep. It's been bliss he is sooo settled by just popping him in the pram when he gets grumpy.

    Maybe try bringing the pram inside and see if that gets him to sleep. I had been hesitate to try this at home, because I was fearful of it not working while we were out, if you know what I mean, but so far so good.

    Good luck

    Oh that makes me hopeful my ds2 will be ok when we go away in feb. We booked it while i was still pregnant. Just 4 days away to noosa before i go back to work, because it's going to be at least a year before i can have another holidayas i used most of my leave up when i went on maternity leave.

    Hmm I'm pretty sure ds2 is teething which explains why he's been extra fussy this week. I have been rubbing a cold wet face washer over his gums and it settles him. So i just went out and got some hylands baby teething gel (the only one i could find suitable for his age) and a teething toy and he's doing really well.
    Ds1 started teething early too but didn't sprout his first tooth until the day after his first birthday. 😨

    Teething? 11w? I suspect that but I thought too early for my Bub. He wanted to suck non stop.

    Sucking on everything is a normal phase that starts about 11-12 weeks

    He's doing all the teething signs, plus the teething gel i got and chewing on the wet cold washers helps. They can start teething from 2 months my dr told me. Look whether he's teething or not, if it soothes him I'm all for it. The gel is homeopathic so as the pharmacist told me, won't do any harm. But the fact he's loving the gum rubbing, I'll take it as a sign.

    Hi@bbhope
    Yes! He is 3 months as of yesterday. He seems much more settled, sleeping through the night and slowly starting to nap better during the day ... sometimes!! He had been having a big sleep from around lunchtime, usually 2-3 hours. Yesterday was a fail though, he had 4 half hour naps spaced out. He was cranky before bed lastnight and fought it big time. I ended up putting him down still awake but had the room competely dark, and he put himself to sleep.
    We still have crying stints, I've figured out its when he's tired though. So i rock him to the point he's almost asleep and then put him down. Sometimes he falls asleep on his own, others i give in and rock him to sleep.
    He's not 100% yet but there's a major improvement.
    He's still quite clingy with me and cries with dh alot, but he's getting better with letting dh hold him sometimes. Still no luck on dh feeding him though.
    Teething is annoying him too poor kid. Oh i also switched him from the aptimal to nan comfort last week so I'm not sure if that's got something to do with the change in him too. He's bringing up wind alot easier, i haven't needed infacol or anything the last few days.

    How are you going?

    2--3 hrs nap time?! That's dream. We learned a lot from the sleep school but what we still don't quite understand is why he just refuses to nap during the day in his cot. The moment his head hits the cot, he cries and fusses. He doesn't sleep through the night and still with 3--4 hrs feed interval BUT it is a blessing. At least he sleeps. The only problem is his stomach, wind and reflux which interrupts his sleep a lot.

    It is good to hear positive story. There is hope that this can be over sooner than later. We are going to see a gastro specialist to rule out any underlying condition. There is someone in the family with gastro disease.....
