Hi, my little one is 9 months old and he is nightmare to go to bed. If I put him to bed during day he self settle to sleep himself. He has about 3 naps a day lasting no more than 30min. Every night I give him bath at 6pm and put to bed. I need to nurse him to go to sleep. When he nearly sleeping I put him down to bed and sometime he falls asleep. The problem is he wakes up after 30 min and screams and doesn't want to sleep. I have to take him out of bed and he end up playing sometime till 10pm. Then I have to either hold him or nurse him to go to sleep. During night he wakes up at 2am and then 5am and won't sleep unless I nurse him.

He also doesn't want to eat solid through the day only nurse and is allergic to milk so cannot give him any dairy hmm any suggestions please!!!!

I have similar but the other way round. My dd is 8 months old and can self settle at night, although still wakes 2 times but at moment I don't need to go in. But she cannot self settle in the day, the only way of getting her to nap is by sitting on sofa with her cuddled into my chest then I transfer her to her cot. Problem I've got is she started nursery this week and they've told me to encourage self settling in day as they haven't got time to cuddle her to sleep for every nap. My dd is also dairy intolerant apparently there is a link to allergies and unsettled babies? Who knows. Sorry I have no advice but we are kind of in same boat and it's so frustrating at times.
