Standing up in the cot

Postby lfgl » Thu 07 Apr, 2011 5:52 pm

My 9 month old boy has recently been pulling himself up to standing during the day and has now been doing a bit of coasting along the furniture.
He is normally a very active boy and his day time sleeping has been up and down since birth.
On a good day which are rare he has 2 sleeps during the day, then will go from 6.30pm through to 4am, with a feed at 4am, then straight back to sleep waking at 7am.
However this past week he has learnt to pull himself up to standing in his cot and now WILL NOT stop doing it. He then after about 5 or 10 mintues starts to cry. When myself or my husband go in to settle him down, he continously tries to get up again and again and this can go on for over an hour. For example today he was wide awake at 5am, and when I tried to put him down about 8/8.30 he screamed for an hour when I put light pressure on him to stop him from grabbing the bars and pulling himself up. He slept for 2 hours, then after being awake for 4 hours, I tried again and same thing. He is so tired but he has this constant desire to pull himself up.
I am asking for any help or advice how to cope with this, as am a bit at my wits end with it all.

Sorry to say this but I think if you are looking for a Ngala response you would need to join the myngala club.
