my son is 11 months old and is a total mamas boy. He sleeps in my bed and wakes every 3 hours to nurse, even worse I have to keep hold of him because if I put him down he wakes up straight away, I can't even go to the toilet!! I'm at my whis end how do I get him in his own room and stop nuring at night????

Sounds to me like you've got a very high needs baby. At least at sleep time. I used Dr. Gordon's sleep methods to night wean my LO. He doesn't recommend using his methods until the baby is over 1 year old... but it's worth reading through. And even if you use his methods earlier than age 1... his method is much nicer than just letting your baby cry it out.

You may also like to read through Dr. Sears suggestions for night time with a high needs baby. I've attached links to both Dr. Sears and Dr. Gordon.
