My baby is 9 months old (8 adjusted age) and just doesn't sleep. I know all of the advice experts say to have baby fall asleep on their own but I have tried so many methods to get him to do so without ANY luck! Early bedtime, push back bedtime, pick-up/put-down, cry it out, controlled cry it out! Gah! I'm lucky if I can get him to sleep longer than 2 hours. The past couple of nights he's started to wake up 20 minutes after being put down and just won't go back to bed no matter how tired he is. I can't take it anymore! All of my friends have these babies that sleep, I have actually had to bite my tongue when they complain after getting 6 straight hours of sleep. I'm at my wits end. My partner works and is therefore absolutely no help whatsoever in the sleep department. I'm so tired and the idea of having to do this sleeplessness dance everyday makes me just want to cry. I thought I could hack the lack of sleep with a newborn but 9 months of it is a little much. I'm over it.
