Have you tried one of those My Pal teddies? Scout for a boy, Violet for a girl. It plays 10 minutes of bedtime music. My little boy loves it and when its on he will nap easier and if Im having trouble with getting him to sleep after his bath I play it for a while until he sleeps.
I have the problem of my boy waking in the night still for a bottle, he drains 7oz so Im sure he is hungry. I just dont know how to get more into him in the day so he isnt as hungry at night.
I could have written your post one month ago. My LO has always been very difficult for sleeping. We really suffered the 4 month sleep regression and from then on we coslept. But the 8 months sleep regression was even worse. it hit us at 8 months and half and it lasted about three weeks. She would wake up for no reason, sometimes she would whine, other scream and as soon as I held her or offer the breast she would calm down. She woke MANY MANY times during the night. I was desperated. Suddenly it got better and now she sleeps much better again. I think they also have night terrors and separation anxiety at this age and there's a lot going on on their little minds.
