    I had the same problem with dh insisting on cry it out. We agreed if I wouldn't let him cry then sleep issues were mine to deal with.
    To this day sleep is my problem and dh butts right out.
    It's works much better for me. No arguments. I say sleep time is now he walks out. Lol.

    You need to find what works for you. If dh is the problem then remove it.
    If the cot is then use what you have to. I part time Co sleep now. Side car also worked early on. It helps Ds2 feel safe in his cot.

    Heartstringz can you pop his rocker in the cot? My DS3 wouldn't sleep in his cot at first either, only slept in his bouncer. So I put his bouncer in his cot for a week then tried him in his elevated cot - it worked, he started sleeping in his cot

    @heartstringz - take advantage of your visitors! Get them to take ds for a walk while you and dh have coffee together.

    Problem im having at the moment is its just too hot for him to sleep in his rocker. In his cot he can roll around so hes not just stuck in the same place so theres air flow around him. If I sleep him in his rocker he's just bathed in sweat & im doing what I can with fans & minimal cloths etc but im really worried about him overheating in it

    Have you tried the cot mattress on the floor? My Ds2 hated the cot from the minute I put the side back on.
    Now he sleeps in a bed at night but on the mattress for naps. You may need pillows on both sides to stop the roll but you can lay down next to Bub for the first week till he gets the hang of it.
    If your bfing just lay him down awake and feed till he is asleep. Then remove the boob earlier each 3rd day. If Bub doesn't protest to much.
    Good luck hun.

    He wont feed to sleep.

    Ive tried a mattress on the floor but he wont have a bar of it.

    I hope it gets better sometime! I cant wait until I no longer have to spend all day every day fighting ds trying to force him to go to sleep, or alternatively carrying him around for hours if he hasnt slept all day & is losing the plot & wont be put down (which I cant even do anymore cause ive injured my neck).

    I cant wait till I can go out & know that he's going to have at least some sleep before we go & during the outing as opposed to none & then SCREAMING most of the time we are out. So we just dont go out. Its pointless. I dont enjoy it & neither does he, my stress levels go through the roof etc

    I wonder how much longer I have to do this for before it gets better.....

    I can't remember if I've asked you this. What happens if you just don't bother trying to put him to sleep?

    As in, will he pass out if you go for a walk in the pram? Or pass out whilst playing? Or will he cry himself to hysteria?

    My story is that for my first kid I hated being home so I was out all the time. I never bothered with putting my dd1 to bed in her cot. She had a rough routine but slept wherever she passed out, high chair. Pram, car, floor etc.

    Dd2 I made the mistake of always being home for naps and putting her in her cot to sleep. I now have 2 kids, my eldest who will sleep anywhere, any bed, surface, chair etc. And my youngest who will only sleep in her cot at 2.5yo. It's bloody frustrating.

    Also how long did you try the laying down on the bed trick to put your son to sleep? It takes 3-5 days to set up a new method or tactic.

    He doesnt just pass out anywhere mostly. Very occasionally he will. Usually he just doesnt go to sleep & seems to get more & more hyped up until he just suddenly starts screaming & I cant get him to stop

    Have you seen a paediatrician or been to sleep school. The behaviours he is exhibiting don't seem healthy, you seem to have tried all kids of methods and none of them are working. It's not healthy for bubs to not sleep at all in the day. R&A is into gentle go with the flow methods which you say don't work, nor do other things you have tried.

    I strongly suggest seeing a paediatrician and not just a GP. If they rule out anything physically wrong you will have to just choose a method and stick to it. Bub is probably so confused, he's not sure even when he's meant to go to sleep. I get the feeling you try something once and if it doesn't work that time, you give up.

    If he's not sleeping at all, you've got nothing to lose by picking a plan and sticking to it. He may cry with anything you try, but babies need consistency and routine and if you stick to the same plan, it will eventually click for him
