My son is turning one on Thursday and he still does not sleep through the night. He is my third child and I cannot believe how different he is than my other two boys! He cries a lot and he wakes up two to three times after I put him to bed. His bedtime is around 8 pm if I can get him to sleep and he wakes up around 6am! It has been most a year and a half since I have had a full nights rest (unbroken) and I don't know what to do anymore. I am single mom of three and Ihave gain so much weightI feel sluggish and I really feel like this whole experience has taken a huge till on me. I don't know what else to do. He has never slept in his crib... He cried for HOURS... Literally. When he was a newborn he cried all the time in the crib. He cried in the swing, he cried in a playpen, he has criedin the bouncer. It is not his milk, I know this because he usually only cries at night. His crib now is like a toddler bed now because he HATES being enclosed or wrapped down. Even in tu car seat he screamed the whole ride until he was around 8 months. I just would like to know what I can do to make this easier and so I can go back to my old self and enjoy being a mom again. This makes me so sad... Help!

Our Daughter did not sleep thru the night until she was close to 3-ugh. I would try switching the routine up a little. Maybe a nice warm bath right before bedtime with lavender bath soap which is calming- maybe even massage him down with lavender cream and on some soft gentle music while doing the massage. Also rocking and maybe reading him some stories?

Is there too much light in his room? Cozy enough? Too cold or hot? Comfy bed?
