    Oh boy, I'm hearin' ya.

    Our DS is 17 mths old. He can self settle, learned by himself at 5 months but has never slept through. Ever. The people who say that if you co sleep or have a baby that self settles you will get better sleep haven't met my boy. A good night is getting up to him 3 times, a bad night.......well......I lose count & just go into auto pilot. His newest trick? Waking up around 1am & not going back to sleep until 4 or 5 am. (I've tried him napping less, napping more to fix this, cut down to one nap, nothing changes the party at night.) Oh, and I've tried giving him a comfort thing, spent money on a natural fibre bear with different textures.......nope......he'd rather hold his dummy by the teat & twirl it around. So now when I go in to pop his dummy in his mouth I've got two to find.

    I feel everyone's pain!

    Sometimes, I think to myself 'isn't it enough that I feed you, rock, soothe, cuddle, bounce (insert whatever I had to do!!) you to sleep, lie down next to you and feed you back to sleep that you still wake up more than 5 times a night???

    Sometimes it feels like you can never do enough - you just have these bad sleepers

    I've not slept more than 4 hours in a row in nearly 5 years. I'm getting over it!!

    Sleep deprivation is torture. I hope your partner is being helpful.

    Sent from my GT-I9100 using The Bub Hub mobile app
    He is away at the moment, but he is also a shift worker operating heavy machinery, so I really don't want to put any more pressure on him than he has already.
    I decided tonight that after he gets home Monday, we spend tues night in Geelong visiting his fam, and from wed she is sleeping in her cot in her own room. When we did up the nursery I left the spare bed in there 'just in case', knowing what my boys were like with sleep and thinking about how many nights I slept on their hard floor. So at least if I have to spend long hours in there I will be comfortable.
    Incidentally dd will also be 5 months on Wednesday. We won't make it to the six month recommendation for SIDS, but I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time in there over the next month or more anyway... So get used to me posting in here lol

    to all you other sleepy mama's.

    @babyla I have the same reaction. I grit my teeth and grin but die a little inside. My aunt told me gently over Christmas that my cousin who has a ds exactly a month younger than dd has started sleeping through the night. I could have almost cried. It was my turn for a good sleeper, dammit! I've done my waiting! (I feel like adding "12 years of it! In Azkaban!" Lol but I think my humour gets worse when I am sleep deprived lol!)
    Was she sleeping ok before this?

    My dd2 went through a patch of waking every 1-2 hours. It lasted almost 2 months from the ages 3-5 months. Nearly killed me. I had her in my bed as well most nights. It was unusual for her as she slept through from less than a week old.

    Yeah perfect before this and then from about 12 weeks she cut a molar, and has since cut a second one. Anyway, I think that started her of waking more often and now it has become habit.

    Ds has gone back to waking 3 hourly over night. He only naps for 30 to 40 minutes at a time during the day so I am one tired mumma. Hope he goea back to his 7 hours over night quickly. It sux more when the mums in your mums group whose bub is 4 weeks younger sleeps 10 plus hours over night

    ♥him & me = ds 17/9/2013♥

    Just because people say their babies are sleeping through it doesn't actually mean that they are lol. My friend used to always answer when asked her ds was sleeping through 7-7 and I hated her, on closer inspection it was on those nights where he wasn't teething or sick or hitting a milestone, so basically never anyway!

    I too often say my baby sleeps through- because I can't be bothered going into the minute details and constantly changing sleeping patterns that nobody really cares about. And one persons definition of sleeping through is very different from another
    To me my baby does sleep through even though every night she wakes at least once, I get enough sleep so that's good enough for me

    11 pm trying to convince 8 month old to sleep. 3 hours now, I think he may win again.

    He wakes at least 4 times a night and for the past two weeks has decided its play time from 2:30 till 4.

    I'm having to explain to DP that just because he sleeps the night it does not mean the baby sleeps the night. I also now lie and tell MIL that he sleeps the night because I'm sick of hearing about how ALL babies in their family sleep the night by six months... I think the mums all are lying to get the nans and aunts off their cases.

    I haven't slept for more than 3 hours straight in 12 months... So so tired...

    My vent has built up over 2yrs plus and although we have had some success in reducing bed time stress (it tends to be a bit cyclic - goes great, I breathe a sigh of relief then boom a week later we start again) we still have days that start anywhere from 3.30am! So here goes....

    I hate that I dread bed time, hate that I'm still answering 'tired' if people ask how I am and hate that if there's any suggestion of night plans (out to dinner, a party, movie etc) I still think in terms of how many hours sleep I will be missing and never catch up on....

    Oh, and I also hate that the sound my jeans make (or rather my thighs rubbing together when i walk) can wake my child! it makes sneaking out of his room so awkward...

    Lucky DS is super cute :-)
