My 9 month old DS has been a shocking sleeper from birth, and has only been getting progressively worse. This last month or so he has been waking once or twice every hour most nights to comfort suck and be patted back to sleep.
We bedshare so its not a big effort on my part but the constant waking is starting to take a toll on me, especially as I am almost 16 weeks pregnant too.
Any no cry sleep solutions I have read are not suitable for bedsharing so I was hoping someone had been in my situation and had gently resolved it, advice please!
He cut 4 teeth within a fortnight but its been around 2 weeks since the last one came through so I don't think that's it, and he isn't waking for the temperature.
Is there any other option other than stick it out because I doubt his sleep will improve by itself, as I said he has been a shocking sleeper since birth and has only gotten worse, no improvement at all.
I hope this made sense as I am a bit exhausted lol, help please!

I'm sorry you are going thru a rough time. 6-8 mths was the worst for my dd1 too. Only suggestion is that your bubba bed shares with your partner and you only feed her a couple of times in the night.
We did this to drop the hourly feeds to twice a night at 8mths then all night feeds at 14mths. Both times it took us a week.
The first night is hard as bubba doesn't always like dad but with the new baby coming - you will definitely need the help.

Thanks R&A, I hope it wouldn't come to that as I know what terrible nights they would both have! I've booked an osteopath session for DS so as a last ditch resort I hope some treatment could improve it!
