    Oh .. why exactly is that? My niece was raised on soy formula with no doctor supervision ...

    Do you swaddle bub at sleep time? A good snug swaddle helps with sleep. Other suggestions: ,feeding, burping, nappy change. Limiting any stimulation around sleep time. No TV or lights on etc.

    Good luck. It's hard to believe but trust me it will get easier. In a years time you'll be laughing at your 1 year old trying to be funny.

    Try either sleep baby sleep or womb sound app if you have a smart phone. Ailsa used to take forever to settle and would basically ve awake fir 3 to 5 hours doing the feed, nappy, burp, settle routine but since playing womb sounds all night she settles straight away

    At this age I used to put DS to sleep in his pram during the day and when he was starting to wake from his first sleep cycle I'd gently start pushing and that would get him through another sleep cycle. Gradually he got better at transitioning from one sleep cycle to the next. If nothing else works repeat - this too shall pass!

    Mrst we've tried that app with the womb sounds and the vacuum and the hair dryer. She settles for a bit and then starts crying again. No kidding she's been crying pretty much all day unless she's in my arms or DH's arms
    She's not usually like this ...

    Babyla I may just try this thank you. We took her for a walk today and she slept but it was around feeding time so when we got home she woke and started crying right away. I think it may work though when she's not hungry. Thanks again.

    Also if you're transitioning from your arms after a feed into the pram, get the pram going with your foot really gently and put her in as it's moving, this seemed to work so DS didn't notice the transition so much. Good luck! I found this an exhausting time and felt like it was never going to end, it does!
