My lil boy slept thur the night starting at 7 weeks old now i can get him to do it. We have tried different things to get him to go back to sleep. We have issues putting him to bed he cries his self to sleep and usually he cries so hard that he throws up awfully but i think that its for attention. But in the middle of the night he gets up and stays up for a about or 2. We have tried everything rubbing his back, putting music on, rountine, standing at the door so that he knows we r there, letting him cry it out. Then he gets up at the crack of dawn between 5 and 6 hes up, and he barely even taking a nap also. Just dont know what to do!!!!

Same here. My 22 months old just started sleeping in her new big girl twin size bed and ever since, she won't sleep. Last night, she wouldn't sleep until 10pm and then woke up at 12am and didn't sleep until 330am because I brought her into our bed. She woke up at 5am and wouldn't sleep again. Weird thing is that she was sleeping fine in the queen size bed (guest room) for about a month until we bought her own twin bed. I am so tired and out of ideas. At least now I know I'm not alone!

Cassie...I feel your pain, really. I have twins who took a really long time to start sleeping through the night and I still deal with many nights a week of at least one of them waking up. It's really frustrating. My girl went through the whole throwing up thing when I put her to bed and you're right...it is for attention. I would do your best to not respond to that one for a time or two. I know it sounds horrible, but after the 2nd time of not taking her out of the bed after she did, she just stopped. I would just take a towel in lay it over any wet spots in the bed and put her head at the end of the crib where she didn't throw up. (And yes, we're talking a full blown puke all over...not just some spit up)...really though, after the 2nd time she stopped.

Have you tried any of the SuperNanny's techniques for getting kids to sleep. It seems to work well for the twins on the night's they do wake up...but it's getting better and better. Again, as hard as it is, the best thing to try is to allow him to soothe himself back to sleep and not to respond. He's basically training you and he's getting a pay-off. You can tell a difference between fussy sounds to get you to respond and a cry that needs a response. Just try for a few nights to let him fuss it out and see what happens. It's so hard to listen to them cry for you, but it's worth it if after a few nights he realizes he's ok and you get to sleep all night! So sorry for your struggle. This has been the hardest thing for me in parenting (so far!) Good luck!
