    Hey hun. You're not alone.
    My 15 month old is the same.
    I get 2 hours at night in blocks but no more than an hour during the day.
    I have just moved him out of our room as I think our snoring was not helping.
    But no. No improvement.
    I did fix the screaming when I poor him down and he will start to lay down on his own but I still have to feed to sleep.

    I get him to play for half an hour in his cot 2 times a day.
    He gets one play with his brother (6) beside the cot playing with him.
    The other is before bed with lights out, night light on and music toy playing. We have Scout.
    We then play lay down and tuck in with his care bear. Till he starts staying down for a few min at a time.
    I don't touch him from then on just talk soft and reassuring. Constant like the music or he gets upset.
    That's as far as I get he gets sleepy and wants booby. So I feed and walk till he is out like a light then I can put him down.

    OMG my five year olds were up at 4:30 am! I gave them two warnings, the third time I took one into my bed to sleep with his Dad (because I'm currently bed-sharing with DD- a whole other vent- I miss my snuggles with my man!) and he bloody had the audacity to come in to me 30 minutes later and demand I apologise for moving him! Couldn't believe the balls of it!

    So that of course woke DD, so today is going to be fun! I should have sucked it up and just gone to the dawn service, I was up early enough.. just didn't want to take DD out in this cold weather so young.

    Oh no Nomsie that's awful! At least DH is off work today I'm assuming so you're not managing the kids alone. Can you have a nap?

    I know it's normal for a 3 months old to wake for feeds but he woke at 1.30am and stayed awake!!!

    DF was transitioning into night shift tonight, so was in bed from lunch onwards. But, I lay in bed with DD so she can sleep (won't sleep on her own, have I mentioned this new development in the thread? Either in bed with me or in my arms, no cot!) so I sort of rest up while that happens!

    Oh god this is my DD lately I used to be able to fix everything with boob but that seems to be waking her up and she just wants me to sleep with her. She doesn't think she needs to sleep yesterday she had 1/2 an hour the wholeeee day!

    Dd averages 60-90 minutes of day nap time for the whole day. Could be 2 or 3 catnaps. Drives me batty lol!

    I figure what is the point in fighting to change it right now though? She is snack bang in the middle of the separation anxiety phase and until she has learned that I will always come back trying to improve her sleep habits would be akin to pushing poo uphill.

    And, thrush be told.. I am actually used to her being my 24/7 buddy, and those few precious moments I have without her are beginning to feel weird. How sad is that?!

    Haha how old is she? My dd is not yet 5 months and half hour for a 4month old is ridiculous! The strangest part is she is happy as anything without it. I mean she laughs talks, rolls around, plays and everything without a whimper then it's a bit of food a bath and she is in bed for the night by 6ish. No protests.. It drives me bonkers and in ever get anything done but I've also stopped trying to make her it just doesn't work

    I agree. No point trying to change it when they're in that stage. We are exactly the same with separation anxiety. And seem to be wonder weeking at the moment too. She's having naps in her pram as can't get her down any other way, messing around with feeding to sleep, and super cranky in afternoons/evenings and meal times. It's driving me potty!!! She screams if I go away, but also if I hold her. WTF?!?! Very hard to please this week. Hope it ends soon!
