Im hoping someone out there can help me! I have a 10 month old baby boy who has never been a great sleeper but recently he caught the rotavirus bug and we ended up in hospital for 4 days whilst he recovered. Since coming out he won't leave me alone, which i totally understand but the night times are becoming unbearable. I breastfeed him at bedtime, following our usual routine and put him down in his cot, but literally within seconds he is screaming the place down. Im afraid ive resorted to putting him back on my breast till he falls asleep. All well and good until he wakes an hour later and starts screaming the place down again, he calms down when he sees me but as soon as i leave he starts crying again. I've tried a bit of cc but his cry is more of a howl and i just cant do it, he tends to get even more worked up anyway and i find myself crying. Last night i was up with him every hour until he decided to properly wake up for 4 hours before he finally fell asleep for an hour! I only started back at work last week too so feel so tired and run down, already had to take a day off and dread what he'll be like for my mum tomorrow when i go back to work. Has anybody got any tips? i seem to be getting conflicting reports about what to do.
