    Big big hugs. That's really rough. Are there any online resources or consultants specific to ASD and sleep training?

    I'm looking but I don't think I'll have much luck with any local help. But resources I can find for older children so I will keep looking.

    Are you in qld at all? Or where is your closest children's hospital. They will have a department for sleep and respiratory medicine. You would need a referral. But that is where we go and they might be able to help you.
    Have you tried melatonin? Very commonly used for children who have ASD.
    I'm sorry you are having a tough time.
    Can you get some time it for a nap today?

    Would he settle if you lay down in bed next to him?

    Have you rang your state Autism group for some ideas? Other than that Tamtam's idea about a referral to the sleep clinic sounds good.

    Does your LO have therapy yet? Those professionals have lots of tricks up their sleeves, so it's worth talking to them about things like this.

    I'm hoping that the pead can help or his speech therapist but I don't see them for another week or two.

    Thank you all for your advice.
    He has a speech therapist we see every 2 weeks at the moment. Should be weekly soon. We see the pead again soon just waiting on an appointment. We talk to the dietitian every 3 weeks.
    Dh doesn't want to use melatonin but has agreed that it might be an option.
    CFM I do sleep in with him but it is half the problem as he wakes all the time to breast feed. Just for comfort. I am not sleeping well and have ended up covered in hickies from him missing because I'm asleep.
    We not in qld and the closest hospital that might have the sleep department would be 4 hours away.
    I'm not able to nap add I have both boys home at the moment.
    Hope I covered everyone. Lol.

    Spoke to the speech therapist yesterday and she had a few tips for weaning. So I'm going to work on that for the next week. If that fixes the sleep issues I'll be shocked but happy. He is not happy about it so far though. He is getting used to his room again though. Small steps.
