    I too find it next to impossible to find any gentle sleep help. When she cries I get so anxious and upset, so if I do pat shush her while she carries on pushing me away I feel so guilty. Then she Wakes 10min later anyway so I end up boobin her so feel like a failure.

    I have no idea where to go from here

    Sorry for the negative post. On the upside she is such a happy girl with one crazy alert brain when she is awake.

    We have all been there in this thread hun.
    Vent away.
    It's hard to find a nice mix between sleep training and being gentle.
    If you can give me an idea of age and diet I'll try to help as best I can.
    Do you have any routine you try to stick to? Other kids that interrupt bedtimes?

    Hugs. I'm up till 3am most nights again with my little man. Silly bum got sick again.

    Thank you for the kind words, sometimes it's nice to know you are not alone.

    DD is 11mths old BF and BLW, eats a decent amount and boob on demand. No other kids (ftm) but hubby works 24/7 rotating shift so sometimes I wait for him to get home so we can eat together or shower DD (that's there thing).

    Daytime routine is pretty relaxed. Wakes around 7.30/8.30 awake for 2-3hrs morning sleep, awake 3-4 hrs arvo sleep, awake 3-4hrs bed.

    Night time routine is walk in pram around 5ish. Then sometimes a bit of tv (maybe 15min of peppa while I try to get dinner sorted. No difference in sleep on tv and non tv days), dinner, bath/shower, brush teeth, massage, PJs, cuddles with toy and story, boob and bed (7.30/8.30).

    Looks like you've made a great routine for your DD.
    How long has her sleeping been out of sorts?
    Is she getting any new teeth? Perhaps some panadol or neurofen might do the trick?
    Its hard work this mum business you're doing a great job!
    Hugs x

    That's a good routine hun but I'd pull back on the afternoon nap.
    Try only one sleep cycle. (40min)
    Does she usually need to be resettled at nap time?

    Thanks ladies. She has never been a good sleeper, so pretty much always a variation of awful nights. Occasionally I get a few nights where she does 3 or 4 hr blocks but as quickly as it started it disappears.

    Her day time naps are usually only 40min, sometimes 1 1.5 (with resettle if wakes up cranky) and 1 40min.

    Thanks so much for listening to me whinge. It's good to get it off my chest without the "well it's your own fault" judgement.

    My DS is 8 - yes years not months and he still doesn't sleep through, we maybe get 2 or 3 nights a week but that's it. His latest is getting up at 2am and reading books

    I wish I could figure out why he can't sleep, I'm ready to try just about anything.

    My Ds1 is 7.
    He sleeps from 8.30pm to 8 am if I let him. 7 on school days.
    He was made to cry it out by mil from an early age and by dh when he wasn't at 3.
    I couldn't do it.
    I can't do it with Ds2 as I know he needs me.
    I think there is to much pressure on us mums to have them sleeping through.
    I am happy to cuddle if I'm needed. I'm happy to help them fall asleep.

    Anyone that has a go at you needs to have a baby cry in there arms when they could fix it but not give in.
    DH can't handle it and backed off.
    Hope that made sense. I'm in a bad mood.

    Ds is happy to be wrapped in the living room but as soon as we set foot in his bedroom he starts cracking up. Dh can usually settle him eventually but I cant. As soon as I put him down in the rocker in the living room he immediately falls asleep
