My dd is 4 and goes through good and bad periods still!!
She wanted a disney bed so I got her a new doona cover which helped our bed routine for a few weeks but she has now regressed again not wanting to go to bed and waking during the night crying. Not sure if it has something to do with another bub coming along or not, but I want to enjoy a full nights sleep while I can!!

Hey, I have a 9mo dd who started sleeping through the night from 3 weeks I thought I had hit the jackpot! I can even remember saying how I missed the middle of the night feeds! Ha the 4 month sleep regression hit and has never ended. She has slept through the night 3 times in 5 months and a usual night needs to be bf 1-2 times and resettled between 2-8 times. She sleeps in a cot in my room. My 3 year old is back in my bed cause I'm too tired to be putting him back to bed and dh is on the couch....

6wk old dd will sleep fine from when she goes down (around 7.30 or 8) until about 1am and wakings during this time are feed and go back to sleep then from 1am onwards it is a conztant battle of feeding and settling, but down in bassinet maybe get half hour or 40 min and then settle again. This goes on until 7am when we start the day. It is doing my head in, as soon as you pick her up and bounce on the fit ball for 1 min she is asleep put her down 20 min later she is awake.
Oh and if one more person says sleep when the baby sleeps I will prob loose it, I would love to but during the day IF I can get her to sleep it is on me or I have to be constantly moving or if I can put her down I might get 20min by which stage I have just started drifting off and then she starts crying.

DS started sleeping through from 3 years old. He has only been consistently in his own bed overnight from 4 years but in the past 6 months he has been coming into my bed every night. DD (now 20 months) has slept through the night once. And that was when her uncle stayed and he took her to sleep next to him. Last night DD woke at least 4 times and needed help resettling 3 of those. Does my head in! Lack of sleep for me has resulted in me putting on weight as well as not having the energy to exercise so it really upsets me. I walk around like a zombie and have no idea how I function at work!

DD is nearly 9months and usually not too bad (wakes several times, pop in dummy and back to sleep) but seems to have a bad night every few nights and last night (when I was super tired and DF at work) was it. Awake screaming from 12-2. Then fussing between 4am and 6am... Soooooooo tired!

DD was feeding all night long. I thought co-sleeping was meant to make things easier? All it has done is encourage all night long binge-drinking! She is 21 weeks, not 21 years!

I just wish there was some consistency. I feel like an old woman because I go to bed so early just in case we have a bad night.
And why is it that a good night means that we're awake at 4.30?

DD is 3....she is still cuddled to sleep...she has "just fallen asleep" 5 times in her life.
We drive from Melb to Sydney a few times a year...she DOESN"T sleep in the car...at all.
The only times she ever sleeps in the car is if she has had at least a 16 hour day of full on activities...never before 9pm.
She still wakes at least once every night...we tried installing a fairy door in her room and the fairies will leave her presents if she stays in bed all night. It worked for few weeks and then she decided not to bother.
We take her back to her bed when we are conscious enough but often we wake up and find her in our bed...no recollection of when she arrived.
I am so sleep deprived that I just want to curl up and cry.
