    I don't know the whole story obviously but what about co-sleeping with him? My DS did the same when he was little, he just wanted to be close to us. Once we put him in with us he was a perfect sleeper. He has slept with us for 2 years now and we all love it, he sleeps really well Obviously it doesn't suit everyone but I think sometimes babies just want to be close to their parents.

    You cab do this. He is testing you because he knows he is home and you usually rock him at home. Don't give in- you are strong and you can do this!

    Hi there,

    I know it's terribly hard, but you've only been home from sleep school for one day and you have to try to keep the same routine as hard as it seems, it will work hun, you know it will, you just have to be consistent. Your little one is just testing you, they are smart and can smell our fear!!!!

    Keep to the sleep school routine and it'll work... Fingers crossed.

    Look I understand, I have a dreadful sleeper.

    You need to take some time and calm down, don't panic. You know he can do it.

    You said you got to learn what the different cries meant, is this just a protest cry or hysterical? What did they say to do when he is crying either one of these ways?

    I suggest you go in, settle him down, put him back into bed and go have a shower. You need to take a breather!

    Default Sleep school update

    I don't see how settling a screaming child is "giving in". He just wants to be comforted? I realise it is hard if it is constant crying every night, but surely letting him scream and upsetting you further is not the best way to deal with it. Just my opinion

    Its horrible when they keep screaming. Keep doing what sleep school showed you. The others are right he is just testing you.
    You can do this just keep pushing through

    Yeh he didn't sleep. At all. Unless he was rocked & held for the entire sleep. So thats why we went to sleep school. He self settled there in his cot for the first time ever. Now he wont do it at home. But rocking him & holding him is not sustainable for either of us & cosleeping is not an option so what else would you suggest?

    And just for the record he is not being left to cry it out. I don't believe in that. He is being shushed &;patted in his cot so he is being comforted.
