    When my DS was a similar age he was a catnapper too. He slept for 45mins and then was awake for 45mins. Much longer than that and he was a nightmare to get down. I think it could be worth trying a shorter awake time.

    Some babies don't have tired signs like I said. How old is he?
    Maybe try 1 full hour from when he wakes up including feeding and play time. Make going to sleep as simple as possible. With DD I make sure her nappy is clean, wrap her in a muslin wrap, put her dummy in her mouth and carry her while gently patting her and sshing. I put her in her cot with white noise and pat her till shes comfortable and walk out. I don't speak to her or look her in the eye the whole time. If she grizzles o give her a bit to see if she self settles and then go back put her dummy in mouth a gentle pat and walk out again. I make it as unstimulated as possible. Hugs xo

    I don't get it. Other babies seem to get better at sleeping and dd just seems to get worse. We've been up for two hours now. Everytime I manage to resettle her she wakes again five minutes after I put her down. I just want to cry.

    I'm not sure how old Ds2 was but at 22 months he is no closer to sleeping through the night.
    The best I can hope for is 3 hours at a time. @BettyV, @heartstrings, @LiterallyNoOne you can email sleep help at a website called Dimples. Dorothy is great and helped me with to the point info. Good luck.

    Thanks @DueInAugust. I think I was just having a middle of the night overreaction. Dd is not quite 5 months and some nights she sleeps quite well (eg a 5 hour stretch followed by 2 shorter stretches). I think the bad nights have to do with gas but I can't figure out what causes the gas. :-(
    I suspect last night's tantrum (mine not hers) was mostly because I'd spent the day with a friend whose baby is the same age as Dd and sleeps through the night. Cue the irrational jealously!

    Jealousy is normal hun. I have had to get used to it.
    Ds2 isn't talking yet. Cue no mothers group Jealousy. I don't go anymore. I got sick of the advice. You don't read enough. You don't talk to him.
    You know your Bub best hun. Please just find what you're comfortable with and tell everyone else nothing. No one has a perfect Bub. No matter what they tell you. They will have bad nights to. It's just most mums don't talk about it with a mum that's falling apart. They like to put on a brave face and tell you it gets better. Some do it to make you feel bad but others just don't want to make you feel bad for them when your already having your own Issues.

    He wont go to sleep today. At all. Ive tried his cot, the rocker, the carrier, the pram, my arms in my rocking chair. He just wont sleep. Oh yay thiswill be a fun day, not.......

    Honestly im ready to just leave him to scream himself to sleep. Ive been settling pretty much continuosly since 8am & its now almost 12. Im exhausted. Barely eaten, barely had a break. Totally over this.
