I've been reading this thread with interest but unfortunately no advice - T's only slept through once ever and we get multiple wake ups most nights. He's sick at the moment so it's an extra special time...

I've been trying to tell myself he will just grow out of it but I must admit my confidence in this theory wavers with each time I get up to him during the night.

I'm trying the standing beside the cot at the moment as well - control crying doesn't work here either.

Good luck; will be checking back to see your progress and hopefully get some advice for myself.

Phase is 7.5 months long so far...wonder how long it will last!!?!?!?!?

Thanks for your thoughts/advice/experiences girls. Last night he went to bed without the sleeping bag as he has consistently gotten stuck in it and wore his usual cotton short sleeved PJ's then had 1 sheet, 2 cotton blankets and a thicker bamboo blanket. I popped in not long after doing this and he seemed quite warm. It didn't help his night wakings although we did get some progress.
What I did notice is that control crying is not working, and I have noticed this before. So I am trying the idea above to stand beside the cot and gradually reduce that. So from tonight I'll be doing that, i.e going in and replacing him to a comfortable position and then standing there.

I'm still absoluetly amazed by everyones bedding, I just don't know if that would work for Angus. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't think we have 'plastic' bedding, the mattress protector is a more expensive one with cotton piling on the top and the PUL underneath so I don't think it is causing him to sweat. He just gets hot. Our 3 year old is the same and will tell us he is hot so I suspect Angus will head the same way. So I think I'll do the same bedding tonight as the night before but put it on him earlier in the night given Tizzie suggests that doing it later on is actually potentially too late. So we shall see what happens tonight. Definitely lots of food for thought.


Just wanted to check and this may seem like a silly question.... when you are checking to see if he is hott are you feeling his chest or just the top of his head? Tizzie recommends checking chest or back and if they arent sweaty then its ok smile.gif Sometimes their head actually feels hotter....

Would you be able to write a typical day including how much and what he eats, times he naps etc what he wears to bed and we might be able to pinpoint something smile.gif

Oh no you too sad.gif I am the same people say 'this too shall pass', but with every morning that I grab for a cuppa to just get through until 8am and get up a trillion times at night I really loose faith that 'this too shall pass'.

I hope the standing by the cot will get them both through it, sounds like little T and Angus are kindred spirits.

I sure will, will keep a diary for the next couple of days and report back. I trully appreciate any help.

I checked his back. He was on his side so was quite easy to pop my hand in and feel his back. I know he likes to be snuggly warm as when he was a newbie he used to sleep quite well and would wake up toasty.

He is in bed tonight with long sleeve cotton PJ's, 1 sheet, 2 cotton blankets and 1 bamboo blanket. Room is currently 23 degrees. Went to bed at 7pm, stirred at 7.55pm with just 1 cry out so all fine so far. Time shall tell.

No suggestions Heather but many many hugs and I hope he starts sleeping more for you and your sanity. Same for you Gretch - I hope both your little boys start working out this whole night-time=sleep thing.
