Even when we put him bed with us, he will toss and turn for nearly 60-90min

My 11 month old is not sleeping through the night. He`ll fall asleep in his cot but is waking up between 3 to 4.30am every night. He won`t resettle in his cot and even when we put him bed with us, he will toss and turn for nearly 60-90min and is driving us crazy. We`ve been to see a GP to see if there was anything physically wrong. He gets so upset during the night and will cry for ages even if we are holding him. He seems so wide awake but eventually after all the tossing he`ll fall asleep. Any suggestions why he gets so unsettled and is there anything we can do because we are both exhausted and I`m 5 months pregnant! Help!

Answer: Hi, How do you get him to sleep in his cot initially? Are you still with him or does he have another aid to get to sleep. This could be making the difference. Try using our settling techniques they offer a clear message that it`s time to sleep. Cheers, Maree
