For the last few months we have been running on very little sleep. Addi since 4 months of age has just got worse and worse with his night time sleeping patterns. It is so frustrating to think he was sleeping through the night and now he’s lucky to do 3 or 4 hours without waking up and not settling himself.

We have of course been trying to work out how to make this better for him. Because we don’t believe in controlled crying we have been doing our best to find another solution to the problem. It is just so irregular that we never really know what is making a difference and what isn’t. There will be one good day then 4 bad. All I know is we have to find a solution soon as I can’t keep going with this little sleep.

Since Addi is only a cat napper during the day it also makes it hard for me to rest, I do my best but it is very hard.

Some of the things that we have been trying include white noise, patting without picking up, night time routine including reading books and singing, same routine during the day, block-out curtains, a heater to regulate the rooms temperature, shared sleepingĀ and music.
