It's getting to the stage where I'm thinking about giving him a bottle of hungry baby formula (he's never had formula is his life!) and leaving him to CIO. [sad] But there must be some alternative!!
I need some help!! For the past month or so my 9.5 month old has been getting up at 3 or 4 am, and wanting to play. We co-sleep, so there's no way we could put him in the cot to play on his own, and anyway, he wants to play with mumma and daddy. He won't nurse, won't lie still to nurse even, and just wants to climb on our heads and bounce a lot! One of us usually ends up taking him downstairs so the other gets a little bit more sleep, but i'm worried that all we're doing is re-inforcing the idea that 3am is playtime!!
