    @heartstringz I have another question, because I do think about you and your situation a lot. On another thread you mentioned you'd been trying to get your DS to sleep for 3.5 hours, if I remember correctly, apart from feeds and changes.

    Is he crying that whole time? Does he stop if you take him away from a sleep situation and play with him or take him outside for a minute? Or give him tummy time etc?

    Likewise, when you first go out with him is he crying all the time? Or is he engaged and interested in his surroundings?

    Thanks Vicpark!

    Im concerned about sleep school making it worse. Ive watched the videos on their website for 'responsive settling' & it seems like a form of controlled crying. If bub is already crying himself to sleep in my arms, how is putting him in his cot & leaving the room going to help? Not being rude, just a genuine question.

    Maybe look for a sleep school using different techniques?

    Harvs at first he is only usually crying when im trying to get him to sleep, if I play with him etc he does stop. When out he's really engaged. It does get to the point though, when he is overtired (ie if ive been trying to get him down for hours), that he wont stop screaming.

    Things are already pretty darned bad for you I don't think they could get much worse.

    I think you are simplifying things and jumping to incorrect assumptions about what sleep school is about. There's a lot more to it than leaving bub in a cot and leaving him there. Why not give it a try you can always refuse to do something if you are not comfortable with it.

    What you are currently doing is not working...You've got to do something.. Change something... Be bold and make a leap of faith as the status quo currently sucks big time for you.

    This.

    We went to sleep school when DS1 was 11 months old. They looked at everything. Our relationship, food and meal times, our daily routine and sleep. It really helped.

    If you feed him does it stop the screaming? I'm not talking about putting him to sleep, but does it stop the screaming?

    Is he happy to be in the pram when awake? Have you got toys/stimulation in there for him?

    Have you seen anyone for your shoulder/neck pain so that you can wear bub in a carrier?
    He lasts around 2 hours, depending on how good his previous sleep was.

    Sometimes feeding stops the screaming, sometimes when he's tired he wont feed, so it varies.

    Yes he's ok in the pram when awake

    Nothing fixes my neck pain for longer than a couple of days. Ive tried everything & seen so many people & no-one can give me a diagnosis so ive accepted that this is the way it will be & im pretty used to it, just makes it hard to baby wear.

    He faces forwards in the pram but he can see through the viewing window in the top of the hood. Not sure what else we can really do
