      Ok I might be wrong. But he was sleeping well for naps & when DH & I watch movies if I put him on floor & nursed him. But not working now. But he has so much going on. He was constipated & having difficulties from that, then tooth # 7 came in, now # 8 starting to break through, he is so busy he misses naps b/c he is walking more than crawling & so excited he just won't give up & rest, lol! Still falls alot & frustrated at times. He wants to get into everything & has a melt down if not allowed. Plus I think w/ my milk supply decreasing he is hungry, which maybe that is why he can't sleep. He eats solids & today I started supplementing w/ Silk Soymilk. (This is what we did w/ DS1 when he lost weight when I pregnant w/ DD & it worked.) He seemed happier & more satisfied in his tummy. It just seems like when we think we figured one thing out another thing happens, lol! I am soooooo tired but I know this will not last forever, even if it feels like it lol! I will just keep trying everything I can think of to help DS & hope we both get more sleep soon.

            That does sound like such a frustrating situation. If you are at all considering a different sleeping surface, I would try it out during the daytime for naps. When we moved my dd, I did it during nap times so she'd be more familiar with it, and with waking up in a different location. Waking up in a new location can be scary. Also, try to Calms Forte. I've known many people to use it while night weaning with much success. Even if not to completely wean at night, but to just reduce number of feedings, it should still be helpful. We also love the Hylands teething tablets. I use 3 tablets when I going to bed and I know teething is at its worst.
