Advice needed on 4 month sleep regression


My lo for the last 6 weeks approx has been going to bed and sleeping firstly for about 3-4.5 hours and then wakes. I am able to get him back to sleep by feeding him but then he wakes every 2 hours thereafter. Again I get him back to sleep by feeding. He used to sleep bout 5-6 hours at a time before. Is this the 4 month sleep regression and when will it get better?

This has been the story for us for the last 7 weeks. It was actually worse at first. I don't have any answers unfortunately
We co-sleep the second half of the night to get some sleep.

This is the same for us since lo was about 10weeks old and got particularly bad around 14 weeks. Has slightly improved now although lo still gets up every 3 hours or so, sometimes every 2 hours like before. X

I could have written this WORD-FOR-WORD!
She used to sleep for a 5-7 hour stretch then another 4 hours to finish the night So would only wake once or twice a night total. Like your LO around 3 months she started doing a 4-6 hour stretch to start then every two hours the rest of the night! Some nights it's been every hour . Some nights she's woken as much as 5 or 6 times!

This last week has been better (knock on wood). She's still only doing about 4 hour stretch to begin then goes 2-4 hours... last night she woke 3 times total so that's not horrible... Hope it gets better still

We were the same so sorry no advice, I think you just have to ride it out! Ours went on for about 5 weeks. Went from one night waking to 4-6 times a night. Now we're back to just once a night and we've had two STTN's in the last 10 days or so. Good luck! You'll get through it, as hard as it is
