    We also decided to grin and bear it... Ds turned two in December. We tried and tried but nothing worked. He has slept 8 hours once in his life, other than that the longest is about 2. I put a queen bed in his room so dh or I could go in there with him. It works well. We get all the comments about not sleeping together and how we're ruining our relationship. Meh! We're strong enough to deal with not sleeping in the same bed.

    Im pregnant with #4 now so the comments have started that we "need to get on top of it" before bub comes... We just figure I'll probably be sleeping with bub and dh with ds3...

    As others have said it won't be forever.

    Ditto, but we attached the cot to the side of the bed to make it a bit roomier. And as PP have said, it won't last forever - advice which doesn't help you now I know, and it must be so frustrating. Our boy used to wake up through the night every 2 or 3 hours. He's one now and will wake up just once in the night unless he's ill and then it's back to every 2 or 3 hours.

    That was my next step, and over time DD started sleeping longer stretches on her mattress. Changes are so much easier when the child is ready for them.

    Hi.

    The pantley pull off method did work here but it did take 2-3mths to work successfully everytime. Both my kids were shocking between 6-9mths. But persistence and patience did pay off long term. Both kids now go to bed 7.30-8pm and sleep till 5.30-6.30am.

    I've had many a whinge on here. So go ahead.

    *WHIIIIIIIINGGGGGE* lol

    I am probably not consistent enough with it to be honest, I just feel like I'm going mental constantly working on something that doesn't seem to improve much. And I really resent being stuck for ages in a darkened room trying to get a baby to sleep, I already miss out on so much with my DH and DS1

In any case DS2 is sleeping soundly beside me right now
    This is me.
    But i am using the pantly method in a different way.
    I have the cot side car. When i feed him to sleep and can hear he is not feeding just comferting i stick my little finger in to break the seal lie normal.
    if he fusses i give it bsck but leave my finger in to annoy him. He gives up and usually rolls over and is asleep in seconds. I can move into my own bed or put up the safety rail and get up.
    Im still feedng to sleep but i dont mind one bit.

    I didn't need the Pantly pull off method but tried her method to get DD to fall asleep in her cot instead of in my arms (put her in the cot slightly more awake over time) at about 7 months. It totally backfired as she started waking up 5 mins after I left. I was beyond frustrated and my DH said "just do what you need to do", as I was feeling the pressure to have her sleep in her cot. I abandoned the idea for a while and just co-slept for a few months. This included going to bed with her at 8:30 or whenever she had her first wake up.

    Then at about 10 months I was ready to try again and attempted to follow the 'safe sleep space' method, which also didn't quite work but did lead to better sleeping in her cot and also being able to use the Pantly method with more success. She still wakes often at 14 months but spends at least half the night in her cot and is easier to resettle.

    So what do I suggest you do when the method you're trying doesn't work? Accept that your baby may not be ready to do that yet and do what you need to do to get through until you and bubs are ready to try again - either the same approach or a different one.

    So, I put DS to sleep in the bed tonight and just to throw me off, he comfort sucked on and off for about 10 mins and then rolled over and went to sleep!

    My boy was bottle fed and stopped feeding overnight at about 1 year old. Sleep did not improve. If he sleeps with me I get a full nights sleep guaranteed.
