He screams non stop for hours on end, once I woke and he was still screaming at 230 am

I can`t seem to get my 9 month old to get to sleep at night. He suffers from silent reflux and may have a milk protein intolerance which apparently causes severe congestion to the point that it may be affecting his hearing and causing him to bang his head when I try to put him to sleep and while he actually sleeps because of the pain. I follow a routine every night which I read in the "Save our sleep" book, but every time I put him down every night at 7 o`clock he screams non stop for hours on end, until I give in at about 10 or 11 one night I actually passed out and when I woke up he was still screaming in his cot at 2:30 am. What can I do?

Answer: Hi, I reccomend you perhaps seek out a baby settling centre and get some one on one assistance but do be sure you have all medical issues sorted before starting any settling programs. Ask your health nurse for some assistance in this, they are there to support you. Cheers, Maree
