Honestly you have a good sleeper or you don't, you can fight it and sometimes win or just give into what works. You will find what works for you x

So I BF my kids for ages and I've just night weaned DD just after she turned 2yrs old. Slowly and gradually so as not to cut her off cold turkey lol. Amazing getting the extra sleep and so much easier on both of us doing it at this age knowing I can tell her what's going on and she can sort of understand why she can't have it. I know this isn't for everyone but this is my experience 😃

I think it's better to start resale setting up serious sleep routines at about 3 and for me the solidify and work by 4yrs.
No help I know. Just cosleep, enjoy the cuddles and wait until baby is ready. I cosleep but try to get him in his cot when I can so that I can stretch out. Lol.

Thanks Albert, it's good to have a range of opinions, I don't just want to hear what I might like to hear. I did go to sleep school with DS1. Hated it, didn't want to be there and didn't end up following their techniques. It wasn't so much the methods themselves but the fact that I'd already been dealing with it myself for months by co-sleeping, which was helping as DS1 was waking only once if at all. But it was a long and difficult process. With DS2 I think I've gone straight to what works so as to avoid the months of sleeplessness and screaming that we had with DS1.

Is he getting teeth? My 9 month old us not a great sleeping but about a month or so before he cut each set of teeth, maybe even longer he would wake every 2 hours. Now he's cut the top and bottom we will usually get 4-5 hrs then he wakes for a feed and goes straight back.

That's good you can get abit of sleep co sleeping - co sleeping doesn't work for us :-(
I don't have the same problem anymore but ur post title sounded just like me - feel like I've tried everything and don't know what to do anymore. Im at my wits end. My problem is that feeding to sleep doesn't work alot anymore and nothing else really works either. I'm up roughly every 2 hrs aswel.
Dd is 7.5 mths now but she used to always do the same thing as your lo. Either wake as soon as I delatch or when she was put in the cot. What I did for months was feed her to sleep at night and then have her sleep on me for 30-60 mins roughly and then transfer when she was in a really deep sleep.
For day sleeps she sleeps on me.
Have you tried the pantley dance? I started doing that at about 5 months and that worked pretty good for us for awhile. Basically what I would do is feed her on the lounge til she just falls asleep, then stand and start rocking/walking round her room. I delatch her whilst rocking so that she's got the movement to distract her and she stays asleep. She protested sometimes but because she's already really sleepy the rocking would normally get her back asleep. Then I would alternate rocking/moving around with standing completely still. No pattern with timing, I just keep making the standing still parts longer each time. Then I would place her in the cot.
Hope that makes sense- I'm pretty tired right now 😜
