    I honestly wish I was near by so I could come and take over and give you a break. I really worry about the stress you are feeling @heartstringz. I would do it in a heartbeat. I really hope he naps for you soon. Xxx

    If you need to put him in his cot for 5 min it won't kill him. Get yourself a sandwich. Make a coffee. If he is screaming for you at least your there. But you do need a break.
    Is there anyone closer by that could come over for a bit and help?

    @heartstringz the sleep consultant I had suggested setting myself a limit of how long I'd be willing to try settling for. For me it was an hour before my head exploded. So if he's not asleep after an hour (or very close to it) then I would get him up again.

    If he cries a lot anyway I would just go about my business. You have to look after yourself and eat. He won't die if you leave him for a little while. He's still learning that you'll be back, but he will learn.

    Trying to settle for 4 hours would do me in, I think. I can imagine how bad you must be feeling.

    How old is bub now heartstringz? At 6 months old it's the age where controlled comforting can start. Gentle methods clearly aren't working for bub, but I would still rule out medical issues. I know you have been to a GP, but quite frankly, they can be useless. I'd recommend a referral to a paed.

    Also a mum in my DIG has taken her DS to an osteopath and after 2 visits has already noticed a difference, so that's something else to try.

    If it makes you feel better my DS has only slept 1 hour since 6am too. By this stage almost nothing works as they're so over tired. He's currently upright asleep on my chest though so I'm not moving an inch until he's been asleep at least 1 hour so he doesn't get even more tired and my DD is going to be up by then too so I have to put him down then. I know you have a neck problem, but this position isn't putting an strain on my neck, maybe you could try this too?

    Thans A-Squared. He's 5 months old. I really didnt want to do controlled crying but if this doesnt improve in the next month I dont think I have much choice

    He's finally asleep in his rocker but will only stay asleep if its rocking. It doesnt rock itself so imsitting rocking it non stop. Hopefully ill get an hour out of him

    No one ever really wants to do CC, but parents use it when at their wits end and it sounds like your DS is going to cry either way. You can always do really short intervals like 2, 3, 4, 5 minutes at a time.

    Has bub fed during that time? Have you looked up the average awake times yet? Have you managed to get help for your anxiety? Have you asked your GP/MACH nurse about sleep school? The status quo cannot continue, that's just too bloody rough for you.

    Yes Vicpark, all I did this morning was feed him, change him & try & get him to go to sleep. Ive looked at awake times, I think 1.5-2 hrs is good for him. Im hoping to see my psych again soon once my sister gets some free time to look after ds - dh has too many deadlines to take time off work before xmas.

    Heartstringz I know you have received a lot of advice and tried probably everything. You are doing a great job! One thing that works for my DD is covering her eyes. She is soooo alert and it doesn't matter how tired she is DD will still be looking around but once I cover her eyes she will fall asleep. Might be worth a shot if you haven't already tried it.
