My nearly 10mo son is waking 2 hourly and has done so for the past 2 weeks. He used to sleep from 8pm til 1 or 2am, nurse and then back to sleep until 6am or so. I cant see or feel any teeth, he has 3 meals a day plus is BF, can settle himself to nap in the daytime but wont at night. He was sick and in hospital a few weeks back but we tried to keep to his waking schedule when the nurses needed to check him. I am sooo tired and at my wits end (I have a 2.5 yo as well and I am snapping at her because I am so tired)..... My son has Downs but he has never had a sleep issue until now! I try to resettle him and sometimes it works and other times he wont until he is BF. I have stopped rocking him to sleep and am doing the pickup/put down method and also VR. my husband tries to help as much as possible.....what am I doing wrong? What am I missing? I need some help/advice because I am struggling to keep going during the day and I desparately need some sleep!!!!!
