Aaargh - help!

Postby JabberJabber » Thu Oct 25, 2012 8:31 pm

So Isaac won't go down in his cot. He is asleep on our shoulders, but every time we move him to put him in the cot, he cries.

I have been trying to get him down since about 7.30pm!!

Given him calpol, teething powder, offered boob a million times, checked nappy (not in that order)

We are desperate to go to bed as we have been up since stupid o'clock!

What next?

Can he sleep in your bed? Gently roll with him in your arms until he's on the matress....stage 1!

Other than that, I tend to lower & move away bit by bit so he gets used to being further away from me. Don't know what else to suggest really. Can you lean over his cot still snuggling and gradually release him? :hug:

Sending DH to investigate what's in the baby medicine cabinet whilst I'm slowly sinking down the bed...
