My 24 week old gorgeous boy is an insomniac it seems. He was EBF until about 3 weeks ago, and is now FF. He is on 2 meals a day, but still wakes every 2 hrs at night. Not necessarily to feed, but is up and then settles quite quickly. He sleeps in his cot and naps there during the day too with no issues.
I really don't know what is causing him to wake like this? As a newborn he would sleep 4-5 hours easy.
Any pointers? Tips?
Me and my dark circles would be eternally grateful! Thanks
Sorry - there's a growth spurt/developmental leap around /5/6 months with small respites in between. My DS started to sleep longer stretches randomly at 6 months, then stopped, then again at 7/8 months, then stopped then again at 9 months, then stopped...... He;s 13 months now and it's been a while since we had 2 hourly wakings unless he has trapped wind or is ill or teething.
It's worth checking his diet - is he on any solids which could cause wind or a bit harder to digest? E.g dairy, green veg, eggs, bread... Sometimes it can take a bit of time for them to get used to digesting solids so worth having a think about what he's eating.
