    Charlie is 5 months and still wakes me up every hour through the night im up out of bed every hour putting his dummy back in and up twice a night feeding him occasionaly i will get 2 or 3 hours undisturbed sleep im so fed up as it feels like its been going on years i just keep trying to think hel grow out of it soon but i cant help feeling frustrated at night as when i go to bed i dread it as i know il be up a million times at 5 months i didnt think he would be like this but i think alot of the time its wind that wakes him up and he gets a bit grisley with it. I still have to sleep in the day when he sleeps too big :hug: hope he gets better soon xxx

    I am right there with you. Bren sleeps 2-3 hours at a time. He is having such a hard time right now sleeping. He just flails around after a bit and wakes himself up. I have tried swaddling and it does not work. I tried last night to lay next to him and let him cry a bit, well an hour and half later, I was still up with him calming and getting him back to sleep. It is so frustrating and I feel like I am doing everything wrong.

    I know how you feel, we HAD to swaddle Jack from birth as he is WAY too active with his hands and feet. He is getting too big for his swaddle now so we have out him in a sleeping bag, and that means hands are free, so NOW he is pulling the dummy out ALL NIGHT !!!
    I just keep thinking "he'll grow out of it, he'll grow out of it" hoping it's not going to be a year or so! We have tried weaning him off the dummy but it's just impossible! I have broken down in tears at nighttime to my OH at least a handful of times because I just can't cope with 20 mins sleep and then the dummy is out, 20 mins sleep and he wants it back in, all night !
    I'm lucky in the way that my OH looks after him 2 nights a week so at least I have a little more sleep them nights. Although I still have to poke him cuz I can hear little things like him mumbling and the dummy drop lol!

    I don't think there is anything we can do, an invention is needed lol!
