Sleeping through the night

I know this is a hot topic on here and I have posted on it before. But I have tried everything in the books, even what people on here have told me to do. My son who is 9 months still wakes up about 5 or 6 times within 12 hrs. Not for food, just because he had a hard time falling asleep. He sleeps with me from 12 am till he wakes up because he can’t go back to sleep in his crib, cause all he does is scream. Has anyone ever tried baby melatonin for their little one? My son puts himself to sleep when I put him down for naps and bedtime but when he wakes up a night he can’t put himself back down. I’ve heard from someone who has used it that it helped their little one sleep through the night. I was wanting opinions on it.

    Precious Little Sleep was my best sleep resource. It overviews lots of options based on where you are now and your preferences. It goes through the “gentle or no cry” methods and the rest of your options. They have a Facebook group that can help you troubleshoot once you’ve read the book. They’re super helpful and every time I’ve followed their advice our Sleep has gotten better and better.

    Hmmmm, id say take a look at your schedule. Too much day sleep? Too little day sleep? In my opinion, if he wakes in the middle of the night and can’t go back down he seems like he’s not tired enough..... be sure he’s up 3-4 hours before bedtime!

    We had the same problem with our son , he would wake up many times during the night when we put him on his crib until he end up sleeping with us, we found a page on Instagram that is call “Happy bed time “ and we payed them for a routine and it works, our baby sleeps through the whole night by himself without crying since the second day, check it out

    Sounds like he's getting use to being in your bed maybe? Our 5 and 6 year old still try and make their way into ours saying they can't sleep. I warned my husband about this as i have two teens from my previous marriage. He's a softy and didn't like to hear them cry at bedtime but sometimes it's ok to let them cry a little on the crib at bedtime. It's a winding down process and eventually it stops when they get a feel for the routine.
