Alright, my 11 month old STILL won't sleep. Not just through the night, but screams when it is supposed to be nap time as well. We'll start with nap first. He used to be alright when taking naps. I would nurse him until he fell asleep or close to. He would then roll over to his side and pass out for about 45 mins-1 hour, 2 times a day. Recently within the last couple weeks he will scream and cry until either his father and I give in, but that is not until at least an hour or so. I've even tried consoling him and laying him back down to reassure him that we are here and it's time for sleep (without picking him up). But he just continues to scream and cry. Seems like the only thing he will sleep in is his swing, again he is 11 months old, a little too big for the swing, at least it's looking that way. Now bed time. I am trying to ween him, especially from nightly feedings. This isn't the last month or 2. This has been an ongoing problem since the beginning. We actually stopped co-sleeping around 5 months because my husband and I weren't getting any sleep. How ironic. He still wakes up 3-4 times at night DEMANDING a feeding. Again, we try to let him cry it out and he just carries on for HOURS at a time. Ladies, I am literally losing my mind and crying A LOT! Please help!!!
