my DS had a couple of naps in the car today but no good sleep. He's still up. Not crying but refusing to sleep. Can't even feed him to sleep.

either hysterical over-tiredness or out like a light IME!

Overtired. Would he be interested in a large bowl of porridge? Then a stroll in a sling?

IME when they get overtired they sort of go through the other side and you have to wait for the tiredness to kick in again. Keep everything low key and at the first eye rub do whatever it takes to get him to sleep.

I have neither. Just a refusal to sleep. I need to eat but can't until he sleeps sad

I am worried because he doesn't sleep when he's at my mum's house. Will this be the same when I put him into nursery or when my mum looks after him when I go back to work because I can't deal with it!

If he is with me he gets 2 naps a day and seems to be fine in the evenings but no one else seems able to get him to sleep, not even my DH.

totally not interested in food, I am doing BLW and he's barely eaten today but has breastfed a lot this evening.

How are things now?

I was a little stressed, did it show grin?
