    For those who have been though babies horrible sleeping what has worked for you? We moved Bella over into her crib almost 3 weeks ago. The first 2 weeks were going okay. She slept 5 1/2 hours straight, woke for a feed and then slept another 4 hours.

    This past week she is up every 1/2 hour or every hour...and it's driving me insane! I don't know what's up. It has been going on 5-6 days straight now and I feel like a walking zombie.

    I have tried leaving some of my nursing pads in the crib with her so she can smell me..

    I don't really believe in CIO though...so anything you ladies can offer would be awesome!

    Sleep - what's that???

    I have the same problem. Thomas used to be a good sleeper but at the moment, he is sleeping really lightly and waking constantly through the night. He then needs to be nursed back to sleep.

    I will be watching this thread and I hope someone can offer some good advice.

    :hugs: I know how you feel. x

    TBH sweetie I have tried everything when these periods hit but in my experience all it takes is time. I hate to say it but I have found nothign that works - when one or other or god forbid both goes through an unsettled period then I just get them in with me and OH sleeps in the spare room. I know not ideal but I am so exhausted just by life in the day I cant deal with sleepless nights too.

    Sam is a million times better sleeper than Fynn but he has been through three periods like this 6, 8 and 10 months and after a few weeks goes back to 12 hours flat out in his cot again. Fynn well the wind blows the wrong way and his sleep goes to pot - so he comes in with me till he doesnt need to anymore. Fynn is learning to walk atm so very restless so more or less in with me from about midnight atm - not ideal but works for us

    She doesn't sleep too much during the day. She naps like 20 min here or 45 min there..but never for a super long time.

    Im sure my LO is going through the 6 month sleep regression. I didnt have a break between the 4 month one and the 6 month one so im pretty tired at the moment
    Maybe your LO is going through that?

    I tried nothing, but waited it out. He's sleeping much better now.
