Sorry as I can only say I undertand, too! I've read so many sleep books for my LO, who is now almost 10 months. He has always been a difficult sleeper and even now.. will sleep 10-12 hours at night.. waking every 3 hours or so and feeds twice at night. I tried crying it out as a last resort for a couple weeks and that, too didn't work for us. Our ND/pediatrician has told us that he most likely won't be sleeping through the night until he is about a year old and some babies are just like that.
The best advice I can give is to take care of yourself. He has been impossible to sleep train and so we've just adjusted to his schedule. I nap when he naps a couple times a week and go to bed at a decent hour so I can keep up with him. Keeping my fingers crossed this only lasts a short while longer!View Thread
