You can always try feeding him lying down as at least you can dose off that way

Much better last night smile

Unfortunately can't co-sleep as DH is too much of a heavy sleeper for DS to go in the middle and don't have a side bed hmm

Hopefully it's just a 6 week growth spurt and he will settle down again soon

Agree with Purlesque. Co-sleeping has saved my sanity. Can't think why anyone would get out of bed if they didn't have to.

Well done for bfing through hard times, it does get better. I promise!

Does be like white noise? Last night I fed my 5do and DH put the extractor fan on in the kitchen then put DS to sleep in his bouncy chair there. DH slept on the kitchen floor in a sleeping bag grin

We have now downloaded the white noise app!

Then you don't have to put him down as such as he's already lying down.

This is why I had to start co sleeping with ds.
Could you try this?

Not really as my DH gets up for work at 6. He's asleep on me now after yet another feed (how I have any milk left I don't know), but I know as soon as I put him down he will wake hmm

I'm so sorry. I remember seeing 21 hours of my birthday when DD was 10 days old. Sucks. Do you have someone else who could hold him for a couple of hours between 5 and 7 at least? I used to get my DH up at 5am without a shred of guilt. Good luck. It WILL get better.

So fucked off and tired confused

I am EBF and DS has been awake since 2.15am, had changed him twice, fed him to sleep 3 times, but everytime I put him down he's awake again a minute later crying and showing me he's hungry! confused

Don't expect advice just wanted a rant! He's 6 weeks old btw.
