I'm so confused I just don't know what to do. I have a 10mth old who doesn't sleep through the night. He is bottle fed, but doesn't get anything at night. He just wakes and cries to be resettled/pat/rubbed on the back til he is asleep again.
Now. There isn't really a pattern to his wakefulness. Sometimes he sleeps through, but most of the time he wake anything from 3-6 times a night. When we pat him back to sleep it usually only takes 5 minutes or so. Unless it's about 4-5am then it can take half and hour!
I've tried controlled crying but I'm not strong enough to listen to him scream, I just can't do it. But I am now 8 weeks pregnant with #2 and I realise that I will soon grow tired and really need that unbroken chunk of sleep! (or am I kidding myself and I'll never get that?)
I just don't know if I should just deal with the way he is, grin and bare it. Hope he learns to sleep through eventually. Or if I should be trying to actively do something about it.
He is otherwise a happy boy, usually has a couple of good sleeps during the day, eats well (mostly!) and I am happy with his progress.
