8 months old baby refuses to sleep in cot
Hi there, my 8 months old baby used to sleep on her own in the cot and will fall back to sleep with the pacifier in her mouth if she cries in the middle of the night but recently she rejects the pacifier continues to cry loudly and only stops after I carry her. She falls back to sleep almost immediately if i place her on my bed, but once I place her back to her cot she starts wailing and rejects her pacifier again. Any parents experience this before and what did you do?
I used to sleep with my baby in the cot till she fell asleep and i will creep out after. She will sleep throughout the night on her own. I tried carrying her till she sleeps (deep sleep btw) but SOMEHOW, God knows why, will stiiiiil wake up and cry when i put her in the cot. Sigh. Haha. Cn be pretttty frustrating at times but hey, we mommies cn ONLY, and, finally get our sleep when our kid sleeps. So I guess might as well accompany her inside so she'll feel secure and sleep soundly.Read more
Feed her milk, Pat her softly till she sleeps. Or Prolly you can wait till she’s in a deep sleep then put baby down.Read more
- Hi mummies! I've been using a co-sleeper cot eversince my girl was born; she's 10 months old. She's been doing great sleeping in her cot, however in the middle of the night, she has a habit of sleep-crawling to my bed, and will crawl herself to sleep in between my husband and me in the middle of the night ?. Me and my husband are thinking of changing her co-sleep cot to a baby crib, which will make it hard for her to crawl to our bed, because we want to train her to sleep in her own cot (but still our room). Any tips on how to do this successfully? I'm worried she might cry & insist that we carry her to our bed.
She really might cry, but you guys will need to tough it out together, so that she really learns. Try to create a new and fun bedtime routine with her in her new cot.. get her comfortable in it.. till she slowly adjusts. Both my kids sleep in their own rooms/cots now, and it’s life-changing.

- My LO is currently 2 months old and recently, she refuses to be put down to her cot to sleep! Co-sleeping doesn't work as well and she only wants to be carried all the time. The only time she allows us to put her down is when we change her. Very tired of holding her all the time and is affecting my sleep. In the past, we will put her down when she is in deep sleep and it has worked well for the past 7 weeks. Any suggestions to revert back to putting her back into her cot when she is in deep sleep, or even better to put her down immediately when she is asleep?
Same here. I am also facing this problem. But we use rocking chair or yao lan to rock him to sleep .Sometime we play classical music with night show for him. Its not easy but as long as there is some movement or vibration it help a little so perhap you can try . I used to carry whole night and my baby is not small , he is really a big baby which is really heavy to carry .Anonymous
- hello mummies, my baby is now almost 8 months old. her bedtime is usually around 9.30pm and she will sleep till 8-9plus in the morning. however for the past 2-3 days she has been waking up at 6plus in the morning and after feeding her, she refused to head back to bed. kept crawling and trying to stand in her bed. she only fall back asleep at around 7plus, and that is cause i put her in the “yao lan”. is there any other ways (already tried carrying her, patting her and she almost fall asleep but then suddenly awake again to play) i can put her back to sleep instead of using the “yao lan” cause i dont want her to get used to it...
My daughter also used to practise her new “skills” in the middle of the night when she was supposed to fall back asleep. I felt it was like sleep regression. Perhaps doing what you usually do for your bedtime routine may help her to fall back asleep. And when you feed her, do it in the dark, keep the room quiet, and pat her gently to signal that it’s not time to wake up yet.Anonymous
