    I just roll with it now I'm to tired to fight for it.
    I was asleep on the floor while he played on me this morning. Then he gave up and came for a cuddle.

    With a young bub I would either feed or use a shhh/pat technique learned at the clinic.
    - I used to get annoyed with hubby when he would go grab the pram and want to use it. I was afraid of getting stuck having to push and rock bub to sleep in the pram forever.

    With my older toddler he doesn't get a choice: back to bed. But if he is not sleeping well I generally try to find a cause and fix it (eg day nap too long).

    It depends - for my DD (4 years old) its usually medication as she only really wakes if she is sick. For DS (19mths) we sit in the rocking chair and I breastfeed him if really desperate. If that doesn't work I consider a DVD (usually if he is in pain with am ear infection or up with croup).

    When they were babies it was a drive in the car.

    There were many 2am walks around the block when DS1 was a baby.
    DS2 was more content with a boob in his mouth and would usually settle that way.

    I will sit up with them in the recliner and talk or sing.. That seems to sufficiently bore them to sleep.

    Our daughter has had a cough that was waking her for about the last 3 weeks and then she'd get herself so worked up that the only thing that would distract and calm her was watching the wiggles. We'd put her between us in our bed, switch them on and roll over and go back to sleep. Occasionally she'd wake us because the episode was over or by jumping on our heads but eventually she'd fall asleep. Thankfully this week she's slept through every night *touch wood*
