Seems like we are all having bad nights/ days today. Mrs S I do hope she finds peace tonight, I really feel for you.
Crafty that's pretty much the same prob I'm having...little miss Ivy seems to sleep from 12am till 8 ish with 2 feeds but the rest if the day is a nightmare.
Ill let you know if I come up with anything

My Ella is the same. During the day she is up a lot cause I have ds to look after and she will only sleep on me!
I'm lucky she sleeps at night well.
I have no tips, but if you find anything please let me know!!
We are off on a trip today down to Margaret river. Very exciting, but stressful packing!

Sorry I meant KM not crafty
These little babies who only want to sleep on mum
I went to the sleep doc and whilst I agree with some of the techniques I don't think I can follow his way just yet. Like everyone he said put baby awake in cot before she gets tired and let her out herself to sleep, seems a lot easier said than done, but I do agree she needs to learn this skill, but should I force it at this age as I have tried with not much luck...
He then said of she doesn't settle to just let her cry up to 40 mins each time...and to start solids at 8 weeks?!

8 weeks? That seems a bit early to me Nic! I've been told the earliest is 4 months?
You should do what you feel comfortable with. We let Zoe cry one night for about 40 minutes and she has been an angel since. Whether it was that that helped or not I can't say but she is fantastic now. It was so hard to let her cry but I was at my wits end at that point. But it all depends on you and what you are comfortable with.

Thanks crafty I remember you saying that. Ivy is a sleep fighter do I think it would take longer than 1 night maybe even a week!
My mum said I cried the entire night for a week...I was 7 months! She said she had to keep coming in and out to check on me, she said worst 2 weeks of her life! She said the 4 kids after that she did it a lot earlier, actually 2 of them didn't need it, but the other 2 did!
I know this method isnt for everyone and I'm very afraid to try it due to all the negative feedback out there, ie: she is to young and will not trust me again etc
I love being on the forums but sometimes I think they do me more harm than good I read too much and get confused as everyone has different opinions and then I get muddled on what my own opinion is! I'm a very indecisive person
