My DS is driving me crazy!!!
He woke up 5 times during the night and is now lying in my arms in my bed grizzling and throwing himself around, but is clearly still really tired.
I wish I could say it might be a phase but he's been waking up at least twice, usually more like 3 or 4 times, every night since around Christmas.
I've called both Karitane and Tresillian and put their advice into practice. We got day naps worked out and now they're really good, but the nights are horrible.
I know there are people who have it much worse, I just needed to vent *sigh*

DS is 9 months Bond.
How do you cope? Are you riding it out or trying something to improve the situation?
I'm considering getting a referral to Karitane but I'm a bit hesitant, I want to try everything I can first (outside CC and CIO, just not for me).
Some days I can just roll with it, others I just get so frustrated and drained, what I wouldn't give for a solid night's sleep!

I am trying to ride it out as CC/CIO is also not for us. I went to a sleep school here in Canberra when she was 4.5 months old and it helped a lot but only lasted two weeks then she became soooo clingy she'd no longer settle in her cot so started feeding/rocking back to sleep again and not been able to stop!!! She is so clingy and attached to me not even her dad can settle her.
I keep thinking I should do something again about it but I don't want to upset her and am trying to ride it out, hoping she'll improve in the next few months naturally on her own. But when it's really bad I get so frustrated too and feel like doing something!
I completely understand what you mean about a full nights sleep. Seems like it'll never happen again! Even 4 hrs is great for me!!!!

4 hours= dream
Dd has currently been down for nearly 3 and I feel like celebrating!
I don't have the wonder weeks book but had to look up whether there was a leap around 9 months because she has just been so weird lately- her day naps terrible and so much stimulation IN her sleep (sleep-crawling, anyone?) that something must be happening. Well, I was right she is supposedly going through one now.
Does anyone follow the wonder weeks? I didn't with the boys, and haven't with dd either but this behaviour is so out of the blue!
I'm secretly looking forward to weaning by 18 months if not before, because that was the catalyst in my boys improved sleep and hope its the same with dd!

Thought I'd jump in as I'm having a rough day.
Up every hour with my 8 week old last night and she just won't stay asleep today. Falls asleep fine while being rocked/cuddled but as soon as I put her in the bassinet - BAM - eyes pop open and she starts wiggling until she is wide awake.
I'm sooo tired.
