    Misho I was giving him the same amount of solids im giving at home & he doesn't eat any of it anyway, so nothimg has changed there.

    We've had some good sleeps over the past day or so but now he wont go to sleep this arvo. There were no tired signs at all (I watched him for his entire awake time), he didn't rub his eyes even, which he usually does. Then I finally saw a yawn & it was right on the 2hr mark as well so straight into bed - now he wont settle. So now hes obviously going to do this to me again. No cues at all till he yawns, then when he yawns its too late.

    Edit: happening again - coming up on 45 mins of trying now & he's still screaming. So now I get to get him up in 15 mins, try & feed an overtired cranky baby, try & get him ready for bed then carry him up & down the hall when he wont stop screaming until dh gets home at 6.30/7pm. Oh yay.

    Oh & when hes like this, he screams until I go in, then he starts laughing (note, he is yawning, so he is tired). So do I just leave him to scream? he wont settle when im in there cause he's rolling around laughing. So confused

    Did the sleep school point out any tired signs? For me, if my babies were yawning they were overtired.
    I wouldnt allow any screaming, I would take him out and try again in 15 mins.

    Nope I asked like a hundred times for help with picking his tired cues & they only told me the list of generic ones.

    He'll just scream again in 15 mins if I try again (past experience) & probably scream that entire 15 mins of up time as well

    I give up with this sleep, its obviously not happening. Too bad ive hurt my neck so I wont be able to carry him around the house so he'll just have to scream till dh gets home if I cant rock him to sleep.
    He sometimes settles ok in the morning & lunch time so ill give him those sleeps if he doesn't scream & just wont bother trying in the afternoon. Yes that means he'll be awake from about 1pm till bedtime at about 5.30 but so be it, he will not sleep in the afternoon so no idea what else to do.

    hi heartstingz, it worries me when you say he is screaming so much. do you really mean screaming? or do you mean a crying?, whinging,? complaining,? I dont understand how he can be screaming, and then laughing in the next breath. I think he could be now getting old enough to know when he needs to sleep , I would really stop worrying about the clock and just let him set his own schedule. so long as you are sure he is getting enough to eat and he has no other problem , I would let the sleep routine just fly out the window. you have stressed about this enough. hugs marie.

    No I mean screaming. Till he is gagging on his saliva. Then as soon as I go in he starts laughing. I dont understand it either, but hes always done it & thats why ive struggled so much with sleeping & settling

    Heartstringz, I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. Some advice i was given which has helped me in tough times is: Crying babies stop. Thinking that has really helped me when the crying seems endless. Wishing you all the best.

    Ok I would like to just go with him supergranny, how do I do that? Im not sure if he'll just fall asleep wherever he happens to be (play mat, rocker etc) when he is tired. How do I give him the opportunity to decide when he is tired & just fall asleep?

    ok, basically you make sure he is in a safe comfortable place. do you have a play area, somewhere he is not going to move too far. how mobile is he? I used a playpen, or just the loungeroom. it didn't open to the rest of the house. I always fed (breastfeed) first then offered solids. made sure the nappy was changed, and let the little one play for a good while, watching, of course. sometimes there might be two sleeps a day , sometimes only one. if bub fell asleep somewhere I didn't want the child to be, it was not difficult to move without waking. if the child slept too long then dinner might be later, but I did always try to keep the night bed time around 7.30. I never put a lot of concern into any routine, I did like to have a set bedtime, but that was once the children were older. a routine as in a pattern, perhaps, but not a routine set by any clock. hugs, marie.
