As for us - Hugo is doing well. Growing really big really quickly. I think he's now 16lb + (taking him for official weigh in on Wednesday).
He is such a joy now, really happy and smiley and always cooing at me, he even giggles when I tickle him
There is one area we're struggling with though.... nighttime sleeping
He had started almost sleeping through. Goes into a deep sleep around 8/9pm and I put him in his crib with the monitor on. It's lovely to get a couple of hours baby free iykwim.
He had done a few 10-6, and then 9-3/4 and then sleeping til 7/8 but for the past week, he's gone back to waking for milk every 2/3 hours. What's happened? Surely at his age and weight, he should be able to go longer? Any advice girls?
I think if he'd never slept through, I would be fine but I know he CAN do it!!
Sounds like a sleep regression. Isabelle's had several. It's totally normal to regress any time there is a developmental leap or one approaching I completely understand how frustrating it is when you know the can do it. Isabelle would sleep through for a bit and then majorley regress, then sleep through, then regress...highly annoying but totally normal unfortunately I know that's not any help in terms of tips, but I don't have any as we've just had to ride through the storm. I hope he goes back to his regular sleeping soon for you
Thanks girls. Been to get him weighed today and he's jumped from 75th to 80th centile so probably a growth spurt. He's 15lb 3oz now, growing up quickly.
He's slept better the last few nights. I've popped his dummy back in a couple of times to see if that pacifies him instead of feeding him and it's worked. He slept from 7.30 til 2.30, fed him and then 3 til 7 last night
Had another photoshoot today. First of three to capture 3 phases (ie, baby, sitting/crawling & walking).
Been having some issues with sleeping with Hugo. He just wakes a lot and is ALWAYS hungry. I spoke to the health visitor and they advised me putting him on hungry baby milk and so far so good. He only woke once last night at 2am and seems far more settled.
Big day today though, he's gone in his own room so I'm hoping he settles ok. He went to sleep quickly and hasn't stirred so I'm pleased so far.
