Could he be teething? Have you any Calpol?

Are you only using expressed milk? Can you not breastfeed him?

any way of just getting him to sleep and then try and feed him then? he would be more relaxed and so would you...

no i am bf but he is just refusing.
he very occassionally has expressed in bottle. but dont get time to express much.

don't feel stupid - i've got a 3 month old and 2 1/2 year old and bedtime is very difficult and someone not feeding properly would send me spinning too....

TBH I have no idea how my dd has managed to get to sleep.
I had to lay him in his cot and close the door while I put her in bed, as i could feel myself bubbling. Didnt want him to pick up on it.I know he is shattered. He hasnt fed since 3 o clock. not like him. he is like clockwork usually.

Im going to hazard a guess at teeth. He's at the age where both mine had this sort of problem. Try Calpol and wait half an hour if poss.

Sympathy, I remember this very clearly the noise of DS screaming hysterically and it was horrible, it will pass but is grim whilst youre in it.

Thanks so much. I have given calpol, and he is in my wrap. Still not happy but not yelling now.
Will try to settle to sleep, then feed.

They do get over-tired so easily. Hope he's feeling and feeding better soon.
