9 month old - MAJOR SLEEP PROBLEMS

hi everyone, 
my LO has never been a good sleeper. He is 9 mos old and never slept longer than 6 hours in the night. On average he gets 10-11 hrs of sleep at night, but wakes up to nurse 5 times. I’ve been able to reduce the length of each nursing session, but I can’t get him to drop any. He also will only sleep if I am laying down next to him. So every night I’m in bed with him by 7pm. Ive tried 6 different sleep methods (even CIO...after 3 hrs of non stop crying I couldn’t do it anymore.)
is anyone else going through this? I feel so alone because none of my friends with similar aged babies went through this. 
I’m desperate for new ideas!!!

Re: 9 month old - MAJOR SLEEP PROBLEMS

  • Try this book "no cry sleep solution" if you don't want to do CIO. It talks about seeing sleep schedules and how to create an atmosphere conducive to sleep.
  • Can you clarify what you mean by "he's never slept longer than 6 hours in the night" but then say "on average he sleeps 10-11 hours at night".
