I'm feeling so low and stressed all the time because my 5.5 month old just will not sleep for more then 2 hours in a row at night. And only cat naps in the day so is always tired and grumpy! I have a very difficult 3 year old as well.

I'm not sure what to try next. He isn't hungry at night. Feeds at 11ish then not again till 7/7.30am. He is on solids already and eats really well. He ends up in my bed most night which I don't really want.

I wish I could give you some good advice only I'm the same. My baby is 7 months and wakes every 2 hours and I don't know how to stop it. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with some advice for you.

Sounds like he has not learnt how to self settle.

Does he self settle at all (ie just put him down and leave him to go to sleep)? Like when first going to bed or for daytime naps.

How do you get him to sleep?

Does he have a dummy?

How do you know he's not hungry at night?

Have you ruled our reflux and/or allergies?

He has reflux but it's well controlled by diet. His still sick but nothing like he was. My DD had it so know what I'm looking for. Yes he settles himself to sleep, always has really well. Yes he has a dummy. Trust me Id know if he were hungry!

Have you tried feeding him the first time he wakes up? You might be surprised!

As pottering said, I would trial a weeks worth of feeding him as soon as he wakes up every time he wakes up. Re-evaluate after a week.

He sleeps ok until 11/11.30 I feed him then as soon as he wakes. Her then goes back down no problem. Sleeps for half wakes and never really settles again. ��
