Hi,

Hope someone is MNetting. DS who usually sleeps ok at night has been awake since 8pm but is just really quiet in his cot and silently doing his sleep mantra. Have been up numerous times to try and feed but he isn't interested and isn't even disheartened if I leave the room. We think he might have a temperature so have given calpol but should I co sleep as although he doesn't seem distressed I am worried he isn't sleeping. Just don't want to. Make him think it is a habit. X

How old is he? I would, but only because I coslept with my DD until 3 months. Which is now!

I would co-sleep if I was you. Do whatever you can to make sure you both get some rest..... As for it becoming a habit.....

I've got 3 year old DS in with me, too. Co-sleeping is what we did for thousands of years, before the Victorians came along and spoilt it. Hope your LO is okay, OP.

I don't think there is a need if he isn't upset or anything? I did it when baby used to wake crying and wouldn't go back to sleep and being honest it's just another habit we had to break. I found I didn't sleep great when he was next to me as I was so paranoid that I would smother him

Thank you everyone for your replies . Feel sorry for you all that you were awake at such hours of the morning( that is, if your are in the UK).

Thank fully I was a sleep at the times of reply but he ended up falling asleep by him self about half an hour after I posted then woke at 5.30, had a tiny feed and then when back to sleep quickly until 8am. He is normally an early riser. Had to put him down for a nap an hour after waking. He also hasn't wanted to feed yet despite offering. No temperature and seems ok bar a very tired boy. Shall see what happens.

Ok, so he is poorly. Temp of 38.5. Have been trying to sooth him to sleep since nine WU, only just drifted off by me blowing over his head and down his back. Calpol given every four hours. Hope he is ok. Will put him in koo dee at my bedtime and sleep next to him on the floor(love the pop up cots for this). He will not bf or take a bottle but am worried he will dehydrate. DP suggested water in his top mug so may try this. Oho ooh, so horrible when they are poorly sad x f

I wouldn't immediately worry about milk intake - it might be he's just tired and doesn't feel like 'eating'. But if you get 12 hours with no feeds at all, and certainly if you get 24 hours with no fluid intake - then I would phone 111.

Hope he's better soon flowers

How old is he OP? If still quite little I would try to push a bf to be honest.

Oh I didn't mention. He is 6 months old. He is on three meals now so have been putting milk in all his meals. He is eating ok, just seems to be a little bit funny about bfs. Will not worry as temp has gone down a bit today but last night was a hard. X
