The baby sleep problem
"I was wondering if you could help me, my little boy has been a great sleeper for 6 months, I was able to put him down for his day sleeps and at night with out too much fuss, just a little grizzle and off to sleep.
Now for the past 2 weeks I have not been able to put him down for any of his sleeps without lots of crying/yelling/tears, it is becoming pretty tiring. I have tried leaving him and going in after 5 mins each time, this goes on for a long time and he just becomes more distraught each time I go in. I have tried just leaving him and not going in at all, the max time I could do was 25 mins and I don't feel comfortable doing that again. I was just wondering if you had any other suggestions? This morning after leaving him for a while when I finally got him up to sooth him it took another 20 mins holding him to calm him down, the only thing that is soothing him at the moment is the breast, and I don't want to get into that habit!
Do you think that it is just a stage? I keep hoping he will revert back to his old ways! Any suggestions would be really appreciated."
