    DD is only 7months but if she's really unsettled she responds well to a firm swaddle in a cot sheet. Would that work?

    Tried it with three different swaddles, from birth, he screamed the whole time until i took him out.

    Does he use a dummy or any other comforter?

    Is he teething or unwell at all?

    The constant waking is probably from being overtired, it's a horrible cycle.

    He wont take a dummy, ive tried 5 different types, ive tried a comfort teddy but he wasnt interested.

    He is teething but has never slept so im unsure if thats why he is horrible at bed time. Panadol doesnt help him sleep.

    If he is overtired its been since about 11wks.

    Thanks for your help. Im still trying to get him asleep. Im hoping there is something im missing.

    If it is possible for you, I'd recommend sleep school. I'm currently at one and we are having great success: no longer feeding to sleep, self-settling and improved day sleeps.

    The best thing was the fact that they took DD off my hands, gave me a chance to rest and look at things more clearly.

    If you want more detail just message me.

    Gosh, you poor thing. It's so tough.

    I wish I had a magic solution for you

    Have you tried any of the helplines? They might have some useful advice.

    I second the sleep school - we've been to Tresillian twice (mostly for feeding related issues but also for sleep). We didn't use controlled crying and had great success in getting DD to sleep and more importantly staying asleep!
