Ronnie has just turned five months old and we have just come through a month of very little sleep. Just as we felt like Ronnie was in a really good routine, he turned four months old and suddenly he did not require sleep. He only slept for about twenty minutes at a time in the day and at night just about every hour he would wake. Some times crying but most of the time he would be squirming around in his cot and batting the bars or just chattering at full volume….this boy would just not sleep ahhhhhh!! We tried everything; we kept him up with us until we went to bed,- that didn’t work so we put him to bed early, we left a light on, we left him in darkness, we played music, we rocked him, rubbed his tummy, downloaded white noise apps, we gave him baby rice before bed, teething powders put him in bed with us and… nothing worked. We researched, trying to pin -point how long this no sleeping lark would last but to our dismay there was no exact science or definite answer.
