Ladies, I desperately need help. First of all, my lo will only nap for 30 mins at a time then wakes up miserable. He has 3 naps a day and with the middle one I can sometimes get him to go back to sleep cuddling him but can't put him down otherwise he wakes up. Also for background, he has a dummy and tends to fall asleep being cuddled and with his dummy or falling asleep having his bottle. I have done pu/pd with him to go to sleep in his cot and it does work eventually. The main problem though is night time.
Jacob was sleeping 7 - 7 until 16 weeks, now he goes to bed between 6 & 7 and I have to go in to resettle him a couple of times then he will wake and want a bottle anytime from 12.30 - 5. Usually around 3, it's excellent if he gets to 5 but rare. Last night he went to bed at 6.30, had to be resettled at 7.30, 9, 10 then was wide awake at 10.45. Oh tried to settle him but it didn't work and our ds1 shares a room with him so he brought him in with us but had to go to sleep not long after as he goes to work early so it was up to me to get him back to sleep.
Managed to get him to sleep by 11.30, he was awake again at 12.45 wanting a bottle gave it to him & got him back to sleep by 1.10, put him down & he woke up. Back to sleep as soon as I sat down with him again, tried again to put him down, again he woke up. Managed to get him to stay asleep in his cot at about 1.40 then he was up at 2.15 got him back to sleep at 2.30 then he slept til 6. He's now been up an hour and only had half of his bottle and tbh he didn't seem that interested in he half that he did drink.
I don't know what to do with him my older son has always been a good sleeper, and Jacob was too, I have no idea what happened. I can't really do pu/pd as he shares a room with ds1 and I won't be doing cc/cio. I just need to sleep
To be fair that is a very bad night but every night I am up 3 times at a bare minimum. Any ideas ladies?
I think there's some sort of sleep regression around six months, I remember going mad as my LO went on a total nap strike around that time! It went on for weeks. No advice really but I hope your LO sorts himself out soon!
I'm having the same problem with LO. I think it's a mixture of teething, growth spurt and maybe some sort of wonder week / sleep regression / developmental leap (she's just learned to roll and is trying to crawl) We co-sleep as otherwise I wouldn't get any sleep at all. I've found that she's not really hungry during the day but wants to feed a lot at night probably because there are less distractions. I try to make sure she feeds plenty before going to bed and that way she sleeps a bit longer.
Thanks ladies! we may have had a bit of a break through last night! Well, it's that or a coincidence lol. At bedtime I was trying pu/pd with him again, he wasn't settling, just getting more and more upset until he rolled onto his front. I'm not exaggerating, within 30 seconds of him being on his front he was asleep! When he was in a deep sleep I tried to move him to his back but it obviously disturbed him and he just moaned & rolled back again. I decided to leave him & see what happened & literally not a peep from him until 5.20am! He woke up chatting away to himself, not crying like he usually does. He slept from 6.25 all the way through til 5.20. Oh checked him before he went to work at 3am and he said he was snoring
Seriously though, is it ok for him to sleep on his front at this age? I was so worried about him last night
