My grandson is nearly 7 months old. From the day he was born he’s been a shocking sleeper. To start with, he was found to be lactose intolerant. Fixed that. Then he was wetting the bed. Bought bigger size nappies to cope. Fixed that. But he’s still waking through the night. My son was saying how well he slept on Friday night, we only had to get up 4 times :0 and that’s a good night :/ Both parents work full time and they’re just absolutely exhausted. They’re reaching breaking point and Im very worried. I live interstate, am broke and my own responsibilities but I’m seriously considering chucking it all to go and help. They’ve been to Drs and health care nurses. They all just say it will pass. My daughter in law works in child care, she’s asked her co workers for advice, they say it’s a passing stage. They’ve been nearly 7 months without a night of unbroken sleep, they’re really struggling. Any advice fellow mums, please? They live in Victoria. We’re all desperate. The other grandparents live close by, both work, nanny only 4 days a week. They’ve been asked to help but say no, the reason given ‘so we don’t upset the other daughter’ who also has a young baby.
