    P.s Your not doing anything wrong. Your all great mums! Some babies are just more alert and need more assistance to help them settle then others. My dr told me the smart ones don't sleep, ha ha. I know many mothers that rock or feed there babies to sleep and they sleep through and of course others don't.

    Thank you all so much for your words of wisdom and support. I truly appreciate it! I blame myself for letting it get to the point where both myself and my husband are so exhausted that we simply don't have the energy or patience to keep persisting with different techniques. I'm averaging around three hours solid sleep a night and I'm still ok so I'm positive it will all work out and a miracle might happen. Who knows tonight could be the night he sleeps through ha ha! 😊

    Ok so it's midnight. Bubs has been crying for over an hour, I've held him, placed him in the cot and patted and sssh'd, he just screams. I've had to let my husband take over who's now giving me all these defensive comments, at this time of night we just argue and snap at each other. ( he has to work tomorrow which makes him mad) I've made bubs a bottle and my husbands rocking him. my 5 year old is now wide awake and I'm lying in bed crying. A typical night here. It's been two weeks and I've not heard about the hospital appointment for bubs. I've totally had enough!

    Default Desperately needing sleep advice!

    Is your toddler 21 months now? How is the day nap and night time bed routine?

    Sleep deprivation sucks big time!

    Yes 21 months. The bedtime routine is the same, no TV an hour before bedtime, bath, story time and bottle. He has a nightlight and soft music, lightweight clothing. We have the same battle with daytime naps so today he slept for 2 hours in his pram. He's very happy and content in the day.

    How do I stop the crying at night from waking up my other son? He's just started school so super tired anyway.

    You can't really. In my experience (I have 4 kids) the older ones learn to sleep through it and stop waking. But even now my 2.5 year old wakes my nearly 5 year old occasionally if we don't get to her quickly enough. But the older one goes back to sleep quickly.

    He also has a soft toy comforter. He has his milk being held. If we give him the milk in the cot he refuses to have it and the screaming begins at 7pm when we settle him. He's very active in the day and is tired and ready for bed. When being held he's asleep in usually 20 minutes but awake again at 10am, 12am, 2am..,,

    Have you tried bringing his bedtime a little earlier, 6.30/6.45? That worked for us. My son also wakes or is restless if he's overtired, if his nap is messed up for whatever reason it is guaranteed he will wake crying at some point. Working on him getting a good quality nap may help him be not so restless through the night. Lots of warning before sleep times and quiet cuddles while talking about going in the cot helped as well.

    This is a good idea. Maybe he is just too tired by 7pm atm. Won't hurt to try anyway.
