4 month sleep regression?

DS is 16 weeks and has basically stopped sleeping... He's gone from one night feed to 2 or 3 at short intervals, so I'm not getting more than 2 hours sleep at a time. He's EBF, won't take a bottle, cosleeping is absolutely not an option as I still can't lie on my side and our bed is far too small. Please tell me I'll get through this!

DH is really annoying me as he just keeps telling me not to get downhearted, which is easy for him to say- he's not the one awake all bloody night!

How am I going to survive this?!

No advice, but sympathy as I'm going through exactly the same. I've tried cosleeping but it doesn't seem to improve dd's sleep at all, and I sleep even less as I'm so uncomfortable on my side. My dh also makes similarly unhelpful comments, before rolling over and going back to sleep!

Any advice gratefully received here too.

You will get through it, I promise!!
When my DD went through 4 month regression I was honestly close to jumping from the nearest cliff sad
Its like going back to newborn mode again - housework can wait. Sleep when and if baby sleeps!
I found that DD was going through regression and a major growth spurt at the same time, and went from one night feed to three - near on killed me. But we made it through, and you will too smile
No real tips, other than remember that it won't last forever, even though it feels like it right now! flowers

No advice but just wanted to say I'm going through exactly the same thing! Past 2 nights DS (17 weeks) has woken every 45 minutes for most of the night. I am hanging, and so is he! Really hoping this doesn't go on for too long.

Is your DP at work everyday? My DP works shifts and the only way I've got through is by either going to bed before DS2 and getting a few hours in or DP getting up early and taking DS2 so I can sleep. I am EBF so don't wake DP in the night. Even knowing you can get a lie in at the weekend can help.
