Nine nights ago I started "gift of sleep" my DS was text book for a 16mth old. He had been stirring twice a night and me simply tucking him back in was enough. To go from bf all night and co sleeping to a cot from 8-6 was nothing short of a miracle. All the while teething. Now tonight it is like we are starting from scratch but he is a diff baby and psychologist angry??? All I can think that I did was allow him into bed to bf and co sleep this morning at 545am cos he wouldn't resettle. He had a lovely sleep till 7am. Did I just undo all my hard work??? Is that why??? Also he still won't go In the cot for the day sleep but has nannys and daddy who hold him to sleep then put him on couch or just cuddle him. I'm beginning to think this is not fair on him or me considering the lengths I've gone to and the nights I've had to ensure to get my bed back. Any advice? He ate a lot today and I've tried Panadol so it doesn't seem to be hunger or pain.

It could be an extinction burst. GOogle it (with troublesome tots I think their site is the best at covering it). It's basically a last ditch attempt at change after doing so well. It's quite common.
Sorry I can't answer other specifics and I'm certainly no expert. It sounds like you're doing a great job

I'm still having dramas and its night 14 these fang teeth are bothering him and nurofen seemed to get him through to 330 but it hasn't done the trick again. He wants to be cuddled but if I lay down and cuddle he wants to feed again. I think cuddling has regressed him but he is so upset. Also hubby has decided to weigh in on the 13th night. He has the staying power of butter on a hot day and tells me the methodology of the book I read is flawed despite not reading it or ever writing a book himself!! So irritating and he put DS in bed with him all last night. How confusing for te kid, now I'm retraining. I just feel like I'm all over the shop with no idea. Doing five minute intervals right now but he is really not happy. Annoying that this worked for the first week. Too many different carers? Teeth? What do I do to ease him back in? Is cuddling and patting destroying the firm work I did in te first week?? Argh...
