I really feel that you need to seek the advice of your doctor before you begin any settling program.

You say you have tried controlled crying, that doesn’t mean that our controlled comforting program won’t work, but before commencing you should take a print out of our techniques from <a href="">Your Baby’s Sleep</a>
page and ask your doctor what he thinks.

I think maybe you should try an elimantion diet because it could also be other things that he is intollerent to cause i have a son who has server asthma and had apnea when awake and stuff and they put him on elimating diet and he hasnt had asthma that bad since other then when exercising and my son use to wake up blue of a night screaming and to settle him had to lay with him but he is pretty much all good now and he is almost 3 and it is only been like this for 6mths
you should see what you can do i am supprised they took him tonsills out cause they said the earliest they could do it was when they were 2 and they said there is no chance having it done before then.
but keep in touch and let me know what happens.
where you from
