Can someone help me please? Of course when dh was here he went to sleep perfectly but now that dh is at work & im here by myself he wont go to sleep. Just tried for an hour so now I have to get him up. Please tell me how to keep my confidence when this happens? I wish I could go back to sleep school

what has happened? has he just been content to be in his cot for the last hour? perhaps just wait another 20 mins and try again? did he scream the house down? why do you have to get him up? if he is quite content I would let him be in the cot until he does go to sleep.. I don't want you to loose your confidence just because you are on your own. marie

Know that one failure isn't a complete failure. Stick to what they taught you at sleep school, don't deviate from that'll routine.
You're still learning along with your ds. Your dh is not the catalyst- I'm sure it's coincidental. You are just as good at this as he is.

I can only try to settle for an hour then I have to get him up. He was happy for the first 30 mins so I left him there then he started screaming & just wouldn't go to sleep.

In my experience, they always go backwards a bit on hen first day or two after coming home. The thing with sleep school is that it's a very sleep-focused environment and given it's different to home, they'll behave differently while there. When you get home, familiar habits start to creep in. Be consistent, keep doing it exactly how they taught you and call them for support if you feel lost.
You said he refused a nap at sleep school as well, try to approach it the same way you did when there. I'm guessing they said get him up and try again later. Try to shrug it off, look ahead to the next nap rather than dwelling on the one that didn't work.
It sounds like you made great progress, well done!! The transition back home is always tricky.

do you have a contact number, for the sleep school?. someone you can speak to. just relax and do what they have told you to do. if they said you only try to settle him for one hour. then get him up, when do you try again to settle him.?? don't worry about the last hour just plan for the next hour. each day you are going to get better at settling him. you have been taught new skills and you both together have to keep practising the new skills. marie.

That is great news sleep school helped. :-)
Remember the first few days will have its ups and downs but you know you can do this.
Is there someone you can call if you are having trouble settling him?
What did they do with bub when he didnt have his nap there?
Remember you have all of bubhub believing in you :-)
