How do I make my f-ing child.sleep.
This has beeb going on FOR MONTHS. Yes, Ex and I split last week but it has been hours of hysterics EVERY NIGHT for the last god knows how many months.
And I can't deal with it anymore. It ruins every day now, stressing.about day sleeps and knowing every night is going to be the same f-ing thing regardless of how good a day we have.
I'm literally going out to get phenergan tomorrow because both of us cannot do this anymore.
Oh and Brauers doesnt work. Ughhhhh.

I have no idea, but I can completely sympathise. After half an hour of DS screaming hysterically in my arms, I've just given up.
I know that doesn't help you...I wish I could. You have me on Facebook if you ever wanna chat <3

Hey big hugs and lots of sympathy!!! I felt like posting something very similar to this for the last few months. Was pulling my hair out and falling into a very dark place. How old is you non sleeping child? Is this new or been a long term issue?
I have just come back from a 5 day stay at a sleep school. Best thing I could have done for everyone in our house. Lots of support an not the controlled crying horror stories I have heard. Know that's not an option for many (I had to fly to attend) so was big decision. Just wanted to reply and send hugs and say maybe that's an option if it's a long term issue (sorry jumbled post trying to do too many things at once)

Go and see your GP and ask for a script for Melatonin. This stuff has been a life saver for our family. Melatonin is naturally produced by our bodies, but sometimes some children need more (my daughter has Autism and has always been a shocking sleeper). Many people use it to get their body clocks back in sync after jet lag or night shift.
My daughter has 0.5ml each night half an hour before we put her to bed. It calms her down and makes her sleepy, but it does not comatose her for the night. She's an asthmatic and will still wake if she's unwell which is good. It just calms her down enough to get her off to sleep as she's quite highly strung.
Seriously, I can't recommend Melatonin highly enough. It really has helped us and I'd definitely recommend it over Phenergan. Give it a go!
