My son nearly 9 months has never been a great sleeper but this last week (while his dad has been away on a stag do) he wakes up every time I put him in his cot!! He used to go from around half 7 till 11 id get him back to sleep then he'd wake again around half 1 2ish! Am I doing something wrong I've not done anything diff and now he just doesn't want to sleep?! I give in and bring him in with me as my daughter who is 5 has scarlet fever at the mo so needs her sleep so I don't let him whinge for long!! HELP!!

Co sleeping with my DS2 and he's generally ok but we had an awful week before his bottom teeth cut through and another before his top teeth appeared. Could it be that?
If you don't mind putting him in with you I'd just do that for now. Whatever works and gets you all the most sleep.

I know what you mean! I co slept with DS1 and before DS2 was born I was determined he would sleep in his cot... Night one he was in our bedgrin

Lol I'm glad it's not just me then he used to sleep really well in his crib in our room soon as he went in his own room it went down hill lol suppose it doesn't hurt! I don't feel so bad knowing I'm not the only 1 and it's not forever lol x

Definitely not just you! You've done better than me to ever get him in his cribgrin I did look at DS2 all snuggled up in bed last night and did think I'll probably never have a sleeping snuggly baby next to me in bed again so I'm just going with it.

That is so true we will never get this time back again so may as well enjoy it before there all grown up, independent and don't want cuddles anymore lol x

It happens too quick. DS1 is 12 and hugs are definitely out at the momentsad Time goes too quick!

Omg shockI can't imagine not having cuddles my little girl is only 5 so got a few more years left yet I hope!! x

You've got a good few years yetgrin DS1 was probably about 10 when he became too cool for a cuddle. I can get one sometimes if he wants something!

Aw that's ok then lol she's affectionate anyway so I'm hoping she doesn't grow out of them to quickly lol I think boys like there own space a bit more don't they?! x

Unless they want something! He's very loving to DS2 which is lovely to see but a hug for mom is too embarrassing!!
