    Im probably the wrong person to be answering, but I think the 3x1 hr day sleeps is great! Night waking sucks but I have never found a fix my 9 month old is also up all through the night, I feel your pain.

    i hope it improves for you soon x

    Could you put white noise on in your DDs room to block out any crying?

    What time does bub wake in the morning and when do you put him down for his naps?

    How old is bub now?

    What is bubs bedtime routine like?

    What do you do when bub wakes?

    What is the temp in bubs room at bedtime and then with the first night waking? What bedding is bubs in?

    The regular night waking to be suggests there is a larger problem at play eg:
    - not eating enough solids durning the day (too much milk?) so waking from hunger
    - being put to sleep with a sleep aid (rocking/patting/music/bottle etc) which can cause night waking.
    - temperature : too cold?

    I don't want to change DD's sleep. She's a fantastic sleeper for a almlst 2 year old. So I don't want to rock the boat. Don't touch what's not broken haha!!

    Lately I've been patting him to sleep VP because we have been in hospital with chicken pox etc. And he doesn't eat that much due to his swallowing problems 😣 so he really just has milk still! He refuses other food it's so stressful. I've starved him and all still refuses. (By starving I mean no milk in mornings etc he just clamps his mouth shut gets worked up). This could be something wrong with him. I missed physio/OT due to pox.

    He sleeps in his sleeping bag it's not summer one but one above it we live in double brick house so it's cooler than normal houses

    You poor thing... Are you getting any help for the feeding problems? I would push for help if you aren't as that really is the key. If bub is hungry then other attempts to get bub to sleep (including controlled crying) could very well be in vain.

    In the meantime if you can try to put bub to bed drowsy but awake that should help set you up for success once the feeding issues are resolved. You could pat still, just stop patting before bubs eyes close. 20 minutes active play after the bedtime feed/before bed can also help promote sleeping through.

    Thanks VP. Not much has changed except my mum still has him. We are giving him iron supplement & b12. (Hopefully this helps with eating). Feeding him takes longer than starting BF. It's exhausting. I might buy the sos toddler book I can't remember any of it. Can't afford sleep school

    So hugos day sleeps have improved. I'm thinking of cutting them back. He's sleeping through from 11pm-5am. He doesn't like going down earlier.

    Is one day sleep too little at age of nearly one? Or should I just be stricter now on his naps. 10am & 2pm?.

    My mum is driving me insane saying he is 'too hot' in his gro bag etc. FFS no he's not he's in his light jumpsuit and the correct gro bag for the temp!!!!
