    But you could wait until your DH is home to help settle him.
    It's not the end of the world if he doesn't go to bed on time.

    What is the longest you've left him to scream? 1 minute? 2? 5?

    What is your routine before bed?

    Bedtime routine: feed, bath, unwind time (quiet cuddles or quiet time in his rocker), short book, top up feed, bed.

    I dont know exactly how long ive left him to scream, I dont time it, I go in when I need to

    What does he do if you just sit in the room, not pat or anything?

    Do think theres too much stimulation with the bedtime routine?

    Could you do the bath, unwind as in rub some lotion into before he gets his pjs on then cuddles and feed then bed?

    Maybe do the reading a bit earlier?

    I read along but never contribute because I've never been very good at getting my babies to sleep! But I did find one thing with DD3 was that she didn't go for being patted or the mattress being patted but she did doze off if I leant over the cot and held both her hands up on each side of her head (you know the position they usually adopt when they are asleep) and shushed her. I didn't force her hands, it was a sort of firm but gentle hold. Just a thought I had when you said you can't pat him, good luck I think you are doing a great job xx
