What has happened? More importantly what can I do? 15 week old twins and sleep.

My thoughts precisely mines...

4 month sleep regression, another vote here. And I'm sorry, but sleep with twins is different and harder. So ner. And we've all got your back Goandplay

(btw, mine don't sleep through the night with any regularity and they're 15 months old. Not sure if that'll make you feel better or worse wink)

It's hard isn't it? Unfortunately I have found sleep gets better then worse then better there never seems to be a magic solution (sorry). My only advice would be to feed on demand and go with the uneven flow. I bet the twins will be back on track in no time! As an aside ILike comment-unhelpful much?

im trying to remember how i coped with my now 2yr old twins, my son sleeped through really early, i remember getting to a point with my daughter when i knew she wanted comfort (was breast feeding) and didnt really need the top up,i would hug her or pat her, i think she was 6 months when i started to get tough! they slept 7-7 by 10months and have done since

I know. I do the nights on my own and feeling fed up. It's always going to be something isn't it?

Had a good night then now another shocker! I'm giving water but she sometimes drinks and drinks until I give her milk?

I'm beyond tired.

Yes, my 17 wk DTs are not sleeping great at all at the mo. I trying to ride it out - fucking tiring though particularly as I am ony own with th this week- yawn.

I'd second the four month sleep regression. You just have to ride it out unfortunately

Could be a growth spurt - as twice said, try just giving cuddles and a dummy/whatever comforts her. Also maybe try water as it could just be thirst? You may find by cutting the overnight feeds t2 may start taking more during the day which is a good thing!! Also, if she begins draining bottles offer more in the last couple of feeds of the day to fill her up before bed smile

Mine are 8mo and still waking every couple of hours, have you tried dream feeding? I do this with the twins makes them sleep a little longer.

I think there's a 4 month sleep regression, maybe that's why their sleep has changed? Sorry not much practical help but I find it sometimes helps if there's a reason at least.

if t2 is not really wanting the milk then just try a dummy and a cuddle when he wakes. if may just want to know you're there, don't reward him with food or he'll keep waking up every night.

Is she ready to start on a little solids?
I dont normally answer about babies any more, as mine are well past that stage.

Also, you may get more replies in a different section where babies are discussed, as this is not exactly a multiple births question per se.

Anyone?

T1 stated to sleep though and T2 was waking between 3-4 for a bottle but then refusing a morning bottle so I reduced this bottle to 4oz and she was taking 3oz so I reduced the bottle again.

The last 2 nights she has woke at 11ish, 2, then unsettled for most of the time possibly having more milk between 4-5 up at 6:30....

I'd just started to feel like I was getting somewhere and this happens. T2 obviously doesn't need this amount of feeds because she is not draining a bottle and has previously had less.

I can't do this much longer it's like having a new born again.

Please help me. What can I do to break this and fast?
