Down At 8 and sleeps fine till around d 11.30 now is waking every 2 hours till up at 5.30. Used to have one wake up but now this again, he's 4 months just. Has one feed at night normally around 4am but I have him a feed at 12 last night but still continued to wake. Grrrrr.

look up 4 month sleep regression - its a developmental stage

he will settle down again in a couple of weeks...hopefully

but equally, be prepared for a "new normal" each time he reaches a developmental leap (rolling, sitting, standing, solids, walking etc.)

each one triggers his brain in developmental bursts, and it gets busy in there, so his sleep may be disrupted for a while

hang in there smile

Snap. Exactly the same here. Ds was going down at 7.30, sleeping straight through till 3/4am, then a bottle, and straight back down till 7am. He's 16 weeks this week, and has suddenly started to wake another 2-3 times, as early as 11.30pm. He just seems to want his dummy, but it still means a far more broken night, and I find it super hard to get back to sleep each timesad
Fingers crossed its short lived!!

I hope so, I can cope with the 4am feed and even getting up at 5.30 as he seems to have taken a liking to that now, if he didn't wake before the feed was due, sometimes I'm up at 12 then 2, feed at 4 and up at 5.30, and by now you'd think we'd be gaining sleep not losing it. I know he can do it as he did in month 3 and I thought it was great, but it was short lives:-(

Snap! It's the bloody 4 month sleep regression. Ds is 16 weeks and was up every 2 hours last night, from being up once or twice a night. Dd was the same, her sleep went mental at the same age. Am trying to just grit teeth and get through it and avoid getting into bad habits where possible (I.e making sure he goes into cot awake even if he does get extra feeds). It's shit, am proper knackered today!
