Stick at it it works. Olivia slept apsolute shocking untill around 12 week then started to sleep through but would take ages to actually go down. It got to the point where I would be upstairs for like 2 hours trying to get her to settle. Putting her down would cry straight away letting her fall asleep on me would wake every time and cry. I used to rock her sleep in arms stood up for ages and again would wake. It was so draining and we never got an evening to our self. Then when she did settle she went through a stage where after 1 hour would wake . Same thing happened again it was nightmare . Just before she was one she had chicken pox and a nasty cold and it made it even worse. It was about 2 weeks after she would just wake up crying quite often and just wouldn't settle. I took her docs to get checked over as normally never did this once was asleep. I was gettin up at 3/4 in mornin cause just gave up trying . I thort get her ears and stuff checked just incase. She was fine just got into a routine from being poorly and waking in the night.

So I left her sat on the stair with my fingers in ears and she cried for 1 hour pretty much none stop. I never went in once I had the camera on my knee and she proper sulked but I left her. She tired herself out that much didn't wake once. No sleep for one hour and waking to be cuddled bck to sleep.

Night two cried for 10 mins then stopped. Woke hour later cried another 10 mins then stopped. Over next week I remeber Lyin in bed thinkin if she cries I'm not goin to her. I only went if her dummy fell through cot. Never said a word completly ignored her . All week she spent about 10 mins cryin then it completly stopped .

She is now the best sleep ever goes bed at 6.30 and wakes 8.30/ 9 ish and never cries.

Trust me try it it's the best thing you can do . Sorry for going on but anythin to help us mums


Gold Member
Thank you so much well after he went down at quarter to 9 he slept to 6am what a little darling. He is always good during the night but the past few weeks been up wanting fed once during night and once around 6am however he slept right through.

He has been doing great with weaning too I'm such a proud mumma.

Today for naps i'v been putting him down with his sleeping bag when he is tired and letting him fall asleep himself he does this during the night so needs to learn during day and at bed time.

What age was your little one in there own bedroom and big cot?

I'm dreading him going in lol. He still fits in moses basket just now but won't be long and out of it so think we need buy a crib.

Have a good day we are off to gymboree today xx


Gold Member
How old is is he again? Just wondering maybe he havin growth spurt. This would explain the extra feeds .

Olivia went in own room at 7 months would of done it at 6 but we was moving house so waited untill in the new house. She went in her cot in our room at 4 months as out grew her Moses basket.

Sounds like he had a good night last night fingers crossed it continues for you. I did same as u in day aswell just use to lay her in cot awake she would cry for bit then go quiet. Sometime she would be awake still after 1 hour but eventually went sleep. She's now used to it really well. Some night she goes in cot at 7 and still talkin to herself at 10 hahaha but doesn't moan or cry once it's great.

Keep at it :)

He is 4 months today he had been down 10 minutes there but woke screaming think he had a nightmare.
