Hi Unlucky, just saw this and congrats on your son

Sounded like things were normal and glad he's sleeping more now! I don't think my son was sleeping that long of a stretch until 5-6 months

I think it is prob normal for this baby for you.

Ds was awake every 2hours at night untill he was..... 5months!! Then it was still every 3-4hours till a year old. He still will wake in the night now most nights for a drink of water but hes capable of doing so himself now thank goodness. Hes 3 and a half almost!

All i can say is i feel you. I feel the exhaustion and feeling like it will never end. It does and the waking every 45mins (cause by time fed n got ds back to sleep id be lucky to get that each time) is firmly planted in my brain it is also a distant memory

When did your bub nap well? Did you do any sleep training or just let him naturally get it in his own time?

He will fight sleep!! Always has which is hard. He would nap though he still has to nap now at 3 due to night wakings which can make things hard as he will only nap in his bed in his room. He has NEVER just fallen asleep somewhere we started his bedtime routine early i think he was 7weeks??? He will now go to bed no problems and he stays in his bed even when hes not ready to sleep so it did kind of work. It can be really hard. I am just thankful our dd sleeps quite well or we never would have coped

Oh just be patience I am sure you will get there. It is so hard though eh you never know when. He did 7.5 hours yesterday so not consistent but I am not complaining.

Naps is still really bad but trying to just enjoy the cuddles atm.

Hang in there


I feel for you. I found it very tough the first few months with my son as he had colic and found it hard to sleep or settle especially after 7pm.

You just have to hang in there and keep trying.

Try to keep the same bedtime routine every night, have some unwind time / settle time. Try to put your baby to bed before they are overtired as it is very hard for them to settle when they are overtired.

Hopefully your baby has had enough to eat during the day and has had the adequate nap time (not too much or little).

Hang in there and try to get some rest yourself when you baby is resting.

Read the info from here, there is lots of great advice that could help you settle your baby to sleep - babyconfused.com
