Do all babies go through 4 month sleep regression?

My baby is 3.5months and a pretty good sleeper. I'm dreading it sad

Not all do, mine went from sleeping through to not sleeping through but for every horror story you read there will be someone else whose child remained a brilliant sleeper.

What has really helped me is Wonder Weeks, which comes as an app or a book, it charts the development leaps that babies go through and how it changes their behaviour both sleeping and waking.

I did with DS. A week of crazy then retrained him.

Neither of mine did.

I never heard of it until my 3rd child. With my first she definitely had one and it was my mother's cue to up her 'that child should be on solids stance'. DD2 never had a sleep regression didn't start solids until 6 months showing my mother was talking rubbish and ds had the most blatant 4 month sleep regression ever, he did not start solids for 6 months either.

Mine didn't. She was sleeping about 11 to 6-6.30 at 4 months, and about 9-6.30 by 5 months. Breastfed, if that makes any difference.

My dd did she hadn't been sleeping through previously but had been in a pretty predictable routine, for 2 weeks around the 4 month mark she was waking multiple times a night then getting up for the day at 4am but it did settle back down and she started to sleep right through from 5 and a half months.

Know what - I can't remember.

I think it's my brain protecting me

Fwiw we've just gone through it better be over the 18 month one.

That was hellish.

Not for us, in fact, at about 4 months we had the first few sleepthrough nights!

This being said, DS just loves his sleep... even now still at 18 months.

The thing about MN is that people only post about bad things. I have spent the past three years on here terrified of sleep regression, fussy eating and insane tantrums. So far none of them have arrived. DD has always liked to sleep, and still does, touch wood.
