its really dong my head in, i did c/c last night with him for 1 1/2hrs ,hes 8mths, and j** i am fed up.

does anyone know why they cry persistantly for so long? its not teeth, he s not hungry, he did sleep thru til 1.30am and then 6 for ages so why?

demoralised. as he is so good natured in the day.

r u sure hes not teething. teeth move up and down for ages before coming through. have you tryed giving baby paracetamol just to see if it works. dont be demoralised you know he can do it. evryone is going through similar else we wouldnt be on here. your not alone. i know people done like given medidcine unless they have to but this worked for my friend. Also if a fter a week cc not working try baby whisperer pick up put down method. seems to take longer but babies seem to be more comforted by it. good luck

mine slept better when we got him out of grow-bag and he could sleep on his tummy, we just rub his back he goes back to sleep, maybe try tummy sleeping.

you know the other morn early morn that should be, he lay beside me and fell asleep instantly on his front/side and i thought hmm he likes that posistion

is 8mths old enough for that?

DS did this until he was 10 months old. He still gets up once at 19 months and more often when teething. I think some just aren't good sleepers. We have tried everything and it's just the way things are with him.

Once your lo is able to roll from front to back and back to front it is ok to let them sleep in whichever position they choose.

Has your lo learned to do anything new recently e.g. crawl, pull up to stand, etc? as these developmental issues can also cause sleep disturbances.

My dd was a nightmare at around 9 months which was when we started giving her a bath before bed to help her calm down a bit more and put her into a grobag cos she always kicked her covers off.

whispers 'Dont tell anyone but both my ds's have slept on their tummies since they were a week old' This seems to stop them knocking themselves out with their arms and they sleep better. I know it isnt recommended but it has worked for us. <Runs away before anyone has a go> Am not recommending it BTW!!!!!!!!!!

Having said that, Ds2 who is 18 weeks is not sleeping through the night at all!!
