I belong with you lovely ladies. My daughter is 16 months old and has never slept through more then a handfulof nights - we had one week of 7 till 6/7am and that's it.

I don't know what i am doing wrong. She has a good nap of around 2 hours everyday - she ears 3 good meals a day. She gets fresh air mummy time, daddy time - is in a good routine - bath, botlle, jammies in a quiet room and bed by 7pm Sometomws she'll sleep well though still up by 6am latest ---- mostly she wakes twice and i need to resettle her. It only takes a few mins to settle her off but it is still broken sleep which is hard, especially as I work full time too. She goes to bed so well at night - puts hersef to sleep.

How do I get her to sleep through - yawwwwwwwwwwwwn!

My 15 month old still won't sleep through the night, he wakes and will scream until he's lifted or given a drink and will sometime fall back asleep. Ive tried controlled crying, it doesn't work for him. Ive given up hoping he will sleep through the night for now and just accepted it.
Unfortunately dd who is 2 has started to wake up too and she has always slept through. Stopping the afternoon nap hasn't helped as they are overtired and can't get off to sleep. Im lost for ideas on what to do.

Myles is just the same, he used to sleep through 12 hours (still getting up at six as he went to bed at six) but now no matter what time he goes to bed (have just pushed it on till 6.45) he is up between 5 and half past and this morning it was 4.30 He is also waking around 10pm and sometimes again around 3! I am so fed up, I am having to go to bed at nine most nights just to get some sleep and then I wake often anticipating him waking up I make sure he has some supper before bed, he is plenty warm enough, his room is dark I just dunno what I can do but this is killing me

I feel like I belong here now!!

I think we're going through the night terrors at the moment. Used to really sleep well, then in last two/three weeks its been awful. Screaming in the night for 1.5hrs to 2hrs.

We dummy weaned in August and had been the best thing I ever did, she was getting 11.5hrs unbroken sleep!!! Then we moved end of Sept and hasn't been great since.

Golcarlilly - is he sleeping too much during the day?

HI Nat sorry you are having sleep troubles
Myles sometimes has one nap, sometimes two and some days none and it makes no difference to his waking time, we have pushed his bedtime on from 6 to half six or six 45 this week so hoping it will have a knock on effect soon, this morning was half five which is a slight improvement almost feel like I have had a lie in

Yup I feel like that too.. I was up again for hour and half. Need to be firm with her. She's getting disturbed... not night terrors, but nightmares..

Ah, so here is where I belong!

La slept through from 3 weeks to 4.5 months - and never again since!! she wants boob when she wakes and will scream and bang her head and scratch herself until she leaves marks if left. I've made her sound awful, she's amazingly wonderful but I'd love a full night's sleep!

The other night she did 9 hours!!! Then had a feed and went back to sleep for 3 more. Typically I didn't go to bed early that night but it was still amazing. Normally she wakes at random times, and then every 1-3 hours after that. Joy.

argh im scared to write in here in case i become a permenant resident!!!

since DD was born my toddler has started waking every night. he used to be a fab sleeper and always slept through, now i know babies change all the time but his sleep has just got worse and worse since Kitty has been born. we have just been away for the wkend and he slept worse than ever before, waking hourly he is defo teething again and has 4 big ones left to come thru so thats prob bothering too but he just screams 'mummy, mummy' untill i go then he will lie down and go back off or want milk.

i have hated letting him cry up till now but really think its the only way forward now. luckily DD sleeps through! im also scared of him waking her but think i will just have to grin and bear it for a week and see what happens, i know 5 mins on the boob will get her back off so think i can handle that.

so will see what the next week brings, im going to have to be cruel to be kind for my own sanity and mine and OH relationship too which is suffering due to the fact im just exhausted.

good luck to all you other mummys too xxx
