Hey ladies ! Hoping some of you might be able to help, my lo has just turned 10 month and up until a couple of weeks ago he slept great 7-8 every night it was brilliant smile but now he'll go to sleep at 7 wake up at 9 go back at 11 and it's like that all night, I'm literally at my wits end I'm exhausted I work different shifts during the day and the latest I get home is midnight. We've recently found out we're expecting again and due in January and it's just really taking my toll I sat crying this morning just because I'm that exhausted, I can feel myself getting irritated with everything and getting very moody I know a lot of this could just be pregnancy but lack of sleep really isn't helping, my oh tries to help but he's not very good at realising when I say I need some time on my own he just occupies lo next to me so I can still hear him crying when he doesn't want to do something sad really need some advice, thank you in advance

I have no doubt your oh is trying to help but sometimes they (male or female) can be clueless unless is spelt out for them. Have you tried telling him that it's not a proper rest if baby is next to you? I think a proper devision of labour might be wise here. Are you BF? Is there anyway he couldn't take him out for a couple of hours while you rest. In anycase with new lo on the way things might become a bit more two wayflowers hope you get some rest soon X

Thank you smile I hope I get some rest too lol. He sometimes just doesn't think I've spoken to him this morning about how I really need a rest and he's said he'll look after lo tonight if he wakes up because he's not at work tomorrow and he's going to take him out so bed for me :D think we just need to get to the bottom of why he's waking up because he's still so tired just won't go back to sleep. I'm not breast feeding anymore stopped at 6 months x

Give this is out of the ordinary, my money would be on teething at 10 months old.

Yeah quite possibly teething, as of yet he hasn't got any teeth so very possible lol I tried giving him calpol and ambesol last night but guessing it didn't really do much lol x
