    Default Over it today

    Before I go on firstly I want to say that I love DS so much I could burst but tonight he is driving me batty. Every night it's a fight to get him to sleep at 7.30 he then wakes at about 9 and he fights going back to sleep again sometimes until midnight, with a few almost sleeps In between but as soon as he's put down he wakes up again I am tired and annoyed, DH has been good since we found out I am pregnant again but now he thinks he's getting sick so of course the world is ending. I am so sick of the night time struggle every night to get him to sleep I just want to cry, I don't know what we're doing wrong.

    End vent sorry just had to get it off my chest

    Ohhhh hugs! I don't have any tips as I'm not a mummy yet - but what do you think is the reason he won't stay asleep?

    Sleep issues can be soooooo hard to deal with. how old is your son? Has he always struggled with the night sleeps?
    i hope you can get it sorted asap

    He's almost 8 months. He used to sleep really well, he went to sleep easy, slept for 6-7 hours at night, then he started getting teeth around 4 months and I think that woke him and now it's a struggle every night. He wakes 2 times after midnight for a small feed each time. And several time throughout the night fusses for a dummy. It sucks coz he did have a period where he slept really well now it's horrible. I adore him he's fin and cheeky and loving and sweet but this one thing is not fun.

    Can you try moving his bedtime routine forward a bit? I find with my DS if I try and get him to go to sleep after 7.30 he puts up far more effort to resist than if I put him down a little before 7. I hope he starts sleeping better soon & good luck with your pregnancy.
