Put leo down for his second nap he was up within 30mins, I tried several times and even with his little bunny but it didn't work. I think in total he slept for 1hr 10/15 mins.

I feel like giving up with him I'm totally confused!

Do you mean that if his hands were busy holding the bunny then he couldn't pull the dummy out? And that he needs the dummy to settle and transition? Am I reading that right?
Would mits helps??

Have you tried a W2S with Leo?

Yes, I was thinking go in around 20 mins and shush/pat or firm hand him through the 30 min WU? Stay until he's in a deep sleep.

Hmm I will give it a go!  Anything to get him to sleep longer he is clearly exhausted, he has bags under his eyes now poor wee guy.

Just in case you need a refresher
How do I address habitual wakings? (wake-to-sleep and other methods)
naps option 1
I'd go in at 20 min, not the 30 it says in the FAQ.

Poor boy so tired.  This could be just the ticket though to getting him more sleep.

Thanks for the link, going to try it definitely. He started stirring at 4:30 so I checked him wet again, quickly changed him and it took him til 5:30/6 to go back to sleep so I've left him (0646 at the moment considering actually leaving til 7:30? To let him catch up I know that putting a huge gap between the two of them but I'm not at all concerned about Lewis's sleeping) but then Lewis wakes up at 6 hungry! 4:30 start for me today yippee😭

Oh dear, a 4.30 start is so hard :(

Good luck with the W2S, remember it can take a few days but I'm secretly hoping you get a good result today! x

Just thought I would give u a quick update on the progress. Around 10 mins after I place my hand on his back (which he does move a little) he wakes up and it's every time, sometimes I won't hear from him again after that 10mins and sometimes he just takes a few attempts to settle him. We are still getting the United settled part of the morning  it's usually between 4&7.

Lewis is teething and beginning to wake early but I gave meds this morning and it helped and started waking in his naps but I'm sure he just needs to sleep a little earlier.

Hi.
I'm not sure I'm reading this right - it doesn't sound like a typical W2S but it sounds like it's working to some extent, is that right?

How many minutes into his nap are you going in?
Then, is this right, you place hand on him, he stirs
you leave he is asleep but wakes 10 min later
he either self settles or you go back in and help him settle...
Is that right?
...how long is he sleeping for?

Hi, yes I think it's working and I go in 20 mins after he falls asleep and he wakes 10 mins after and i give  him his dummy. Sometimes he just settles ok other times I have sssh him a bit with my hand on his back never more than this, don't want to fall into old traps.

Oh good, it sounds like it's helping.
I would do it a few days and then leave him one day to see if he can transition alone.

The last few times I've placed my hand on his back he hasn't budged but he still wakes. When he does wake he's more willing to go to sleep and in a deeper sleep by the end when its time to get up.

I think I may have mentioned the unsettled part with Leo early in the morning, that's lewis started now. Leo from 4:30 but managed to settle him but Lewis from 4 on and off til 6:20 when I finally got him up. Not sure if its cos their wu is so early or our routine needs a wee change.

I always find DS wakes earlier as Spring and Summer arrive even though his room is blacked out, I swear he knows the seasons change!  Could it be that?
But yes, maybe a routine tweak needed. EWs are so horrible.
Is the A time to BT long or ok?
