I have a 2 month old son. He never wants to go to bed at night either. But he sleeps all day and can't keep him up.I don't know what to do to change his sleeping habits. I have to go back to work next week. I get up a four thirty in the morning to go to work.

I have a 10 month old son who has started giving me problems when it is time for him to sleep during the day and at night. From an early age, my husband and I went through numerous nights of him crying himself to sleep because we were determined that he would learn to put himself to sleep. It worked really well up until about 2 weeks ago, and now when we are putting him to sleep, during the day or night, he will scream and cry, stand up, throw his pacifier on the floor. He'll do this for a while, sometimes even close to 45 minutes. We'll go in every 10 minutes or so and lie him down, give him his soother and blanket, and walk back out. I believe that as he is getting older, he is understanding what gets our attention, and he knows that screaming does it. But, we will continue to be insistent and sleep times and routines, and continue to follow through with what we've always done. Otherwise, I think it will become worse!

My son just turned five months old this week and has started to have very interuppted sleep. We ahd him going to bed around 8-8:30 ish then he was getting up once a night to eat and then back to bed until about 8am. Now he has recently not wanted to go to bed around that time or he will then he wakes up about an hour later I am wondering if he thinks its just naptime. So then my Husband and I are taking turns running in and out of his room for random crys, putting the pacy back in his mounth. I am just not sure what else I can do please help!


my 20 month old son has always been a brillant sleeper he sleeps ion his own bed in his own room has been since he was 6 months old. all i have to do is give hime a bottle say good nght and clos the door.

since we have been back from a holiday where he slept with us for 3 weeks in our bed, he cries if i put him in his own bed and close the door. if i leave the door open he doesnt cry but he climbs out of bed repeatedly. i put him back each time. i counted 25 times his last nap. how do i get him back into his old routine?


My little guy naps once a day and is a great sleeper at night. However, I still nurse him to sleep at night and for his nap. The only way I could ever get him to take naps was to either drive him around in the car, or nurse him to sleep and sleep on me.


My 9 month old daughter wont sleep. I have to be up at 4 am
to get ready for work and she wont fall asleep till 2 or 3 am,
I only get 1 or 2 hours of sleep everyday and I am getting frusterated and burnt out, I work full time and it is effecting my work. I try lavender baths, massaging, low music, lights out. I am trying different bath times and feeding times to see what will work. I was able to get her asleep at 9 pm but then she woke at 11 and she was awake all night.
I dont know what to do. My family is not here to help, pediatricians tell me every baby is diffefent, and sleep patterns change, this pattern has been happening since she was 7 months old. HELP PLEASE!!!
