    When my DD becomes unable to be put down in her cot I resort to the pram. I Put her in when asleep on me, she wakes briefly but pushing her back and forth sends her back to sleep. Then I keep her next to my bed until she wakes. Worth a try?
    Thanks. Panadol didnt make much of a difference but Friday night I went to bed at 7 when ds did and dp got up if needed until he came to bed at midnight. He won't sleep longer than a couple hours in the pram as he just wants to roll over and cant. . I will try the pram again tonight if I need to. Last night he slept well but I had insomnia so didnt get much! :-(

    ♥me & he = ds 17/9/13♥

    @Bond Girl just thinking about you having to use the pram- have you seen these cot rockers? http://babyhugs.com.au/lullabub.htm

    They're an aus invention, a bit pricey but I suppose money well spent if its useful... I've not used them but I have a feeling I've seen @giveitago talk about something similar before?

    Dd2 still won't sleep through. She is 2 (27 months) and wakes up around 1.30 am at which point she ends up co-sleeping until about 7 am. Well actually she tosses and turns and kicks and scratches and sucks her dummy really loud in my ear. The list goes on.
    @Nomsie actually inspired me to call a sleep helpline about the issue. Their advice was simply throw a mattress in dd2 room and for me to sleep in there when dd2 wakes.

    My vent :

    That's not my issue. She isn't co-sleeping friendly as it is. How will that help her actually sleep better! If she slept well while co sleeping then yeah but all co sleeping does for us is stop her from screaming the house down at night. The lack of sleep is affecting my mental stability, my and dp relationship, all relationships within the house actually, energy levels and so much more. I need a good night sleep regularly. Dp and I had a night away alone, the first since dd2 was born, and I sleep like a teenager. it was great. If I ask a professional for help then I really do need help because I don't like asking for it as it is. It seems when I ask for professional help it falls on deaf ears.
    Sorry its a late reply - but when our DS became to big/gangly/physical to co sleep with, we shoved a flip out sofa by the bed and when he would come in we would tuck him in there and which ever side of the bed he was on, we'd stick a hand out to hold his while he went back to sleep.
    Would something like that help/work with your DD?

    Oooh thanks @Nomsie. Might be worth a try! Bit pricey like you said but could send it back via the rental option if it's not much good for my bub.Will talk to DH. Anything to get more sleep atm! Thanks also for the recommendation, giveitago!

    I feel a bit of a failure that she's now officially sleeping worse than my first at this age (8 months on Tues). He was night weaned by now and although he woke twice a night would stay in his cot and accept patting with no crying!!! But this bub loves the boob too much! Thought I'd have it all sussed by baby number two, hahahaha!!!!

    How's your dd going at the moment, Nomsie?

    Yeah me too! I was just thinking that I'm sure DS1 was sleeping a bit better than DS2 at the same age (9 months) as by about 10 months we had a night here or there when DS1 was only waking once or twice if at all while co-sleeping. Last couple of nights especially have been just cr@p. So exhausted.

    Two vents for tonight

    1- Put down but awake. HA big joke you mean put down drowsy to make them suddenly jolt into WIDE awake. I know this has been mentioned before but just touchibg again o how infuriating this is. Thanks for the advice genius. If that worked i wouldnt be asking for advice.

    2- try not to use sleep props associations. Um if I dont use them dd wont go to sleep... will cry if down in cot, will cry if you lay down with her will cry if being held.... this will go on andon for hours increasing in hysteria. Oh wean off once getting drowsy.... please see vent 1

    That is all....

    Somedays it feels like they will never just fall asleep on their own. I have come to terms that it is what it is and will get better but somedays when ppl give out (wellmeaning) advice like above I want to either slap them or scream where do you get these robot babies,,,,

    Well I could say the same thing. I'm positive my boys were better sleepers at this stage- not great by any standard, but better compared to DD. I could feed the boys back to sleep and put them immediately back in their cots and they would accept it. DD= I feed, I cuddle, I wait until she is dead to the world, and then I put her back in her cot... 50% of the time it may be ok until the next sleep cycle (yes, she wakes every cycle!), the other times she kicks and fusses until I pick her up.
    So, although I had a plan to not get into bed with her until after midnight and slowly push that time back, it'c crept forward to about 9:30. *sigh*

    On the bright side, she slept in (beside me, but hey, I got a rest too!) Until 7:20 this morning! Bonus!!

    I think I need to join in this thread. I am zombie mum.

    DS2 is 1 next month and still sleeps like a newborn..the longest he has ever slept for in a block is 4 hours and that was months ago. He wakes anywhere between 30 mins-2 hours after he falls asleep. He only cat naps during the day and that's only in the car or if he feeds and falls asleep on me. I have resorted to bed sharing at night as he wants to feed all night long (feel like a human pacifier). That, and if I put him in his cot he screams absolute blue murder..and doesn't let up or calm down. He works himself up into a massive state where he's almost hyperventilating and sobbing (in a matter of minutes) and it doesn't matter what I do, he doesn't calm down until he's out of the cot and being held (and even then it takes a good 15-20 mins to get him breathing normally).

    I have a 2 year old as well and he's always been a great sleeper so this is totally foreign territory to me! My husband works away 3 weeks at a time so dealing with this on my own a lot which isn't fun.

    I have no idea what to do, so am booked into a sleep centre next month. I can't go on in this sleep deprived state as I feel like I'm such a grumpy and horrible person and it's not fair on either of the kids or my husband.

    Be nice to talk to others with similar problems and know I'm not alone
