My LO fusses all night and then, growl -- slept from 6:30am (OH fed him) to almost 12:30 fantastic, but the postman came at 8:30am, and now Finn is back sleeping -- he's only 7wks, so can't apply the CIO method, I'm just going to try to slowly get the baby to recognise the difference from night and day, but daisygirl -- I completely understand as I kept waking up and was kept up by baby most of the night and cannot really sleep during the day (neighbours are noisy) and don't want to put in earplugs unless my husband was here....
Kirbyland - when George was about 4 weeks he was very similar. Not at night times, thankfully, he was only ever awake a couple of hours in the night. But in the day, he would sometimes go 5-6 hours together with no sleep and he would be rotten!! He is soo much better now and goes down a couple of hours after every bottle, and sleeps from 8pm to 6am with just one bottle. So hang in there! just make sure you look out for signs of tiredness, they can be easy to miss!! A yawn, rubbing eyes, even sometimes George just starts to get a bit whingy when he gets tired. I put him straight in his basket and watch to see what he does. If he moans I put his dummy in, and if his eyes start to close, even a tiny bit, then I know he is tired! Occasionally he will still take 10-15 mins of persevering and putting his dummy back in to get him to sleep, especially if we've been out and he is overtired!!
Well it sure is party time in our house tonight! 2.20am and Sophie le giraffe is getting flung around LOs head whilst she gurgles, rasps and shouts, whilst jumping about kicking her legs all over zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!

Had a tough night last night. Our clocks went back yesterday morning and we did a big road trip so I think bub was unsettled. I was up around 5-6 times with her giving her the pacifier. It's not so bad except it takes me forever to get back to sleep and just as I closed my eyes, she'd wake again. Pyjama day today I think!
My breastfed/weaning almost 7 month old has never slept well and we are now down to almost hourly waking through the night. It's not me disturbing him as I have slept downstairs on the sofa for a few nights to see if it made a difference but it didn't. Going back to work soon and all I can think about is how tired im going to be
