Sometimes restless to til dream feed also it changes each night how much milk he has after bath an dream feed. He is restless for his dummy or just restless full stop, we have stopped short at putting in our bed but its very difficult my patner has tried everythin she can think of an i help as much as possible in the night he just struggles for any kind of consistency and i want to help my boy sleep an be happy and help my exhausted partner!!!!!

Possibly teething ? Or growth spurt

We changed from hungrier baby to normal think were goin back to hun grier baby powder between meals, yes maybe teething an this is the age they have growth spurts i suppose just desperate to help an cnt find a solution

Does he have rosy cheeks and drooling quite a bit ? Does his gums look red or sore or feel rough/jagged ? If so maybe some calpol and/or teething granules. Growth spurt could be making him hungrier and if not getting all he wants in the day he could be waking at night for it instead.

Yh i agree with all of the above an everytime we make head way he has jabs, cold, teething or chicken pox! So he never gets chance to find his feet

Jemzy12345 Sat 19-Dec-15 20:26:02

Are you giving him hungrier baby powder and normal ? Or just a complete switch to normal for all his feeds ?

Jemzy12345 Sat 19-Dec-15 20:30:41

Bless him. Calpol and teething granules will help with teething and a teething ring in fridge so it's cool. . How many ounces does he have milk wise ?

Monkfish84 Sat 19-Dec-15 20:40:20

He needed hungrier baby for medical reasons...he has 7 ounces

Jemzy12345 Sat 19-Dec-15 20:53:47

You could increase his intake to 8 ounces a feed to see if that helps. If he doesn't drink it, he doesn't drink it but you have the extra ounce that at some feeds he might want that little bit more

You mentioned that he has had jabs/cold/teething/chicken pox.... so maybe you are already doing the right things, but the illnesses and teething stopped them working.
It's REALLY frustrating, as you just start seeing a possible light at the end of the tunnel then they get another horrible cold...or more teeth start coming through. My son has never slept through, currently only goes 2-4 hours at a time and he's nearly 9 months. It's just been one thing after another, bless him.
Keep up the good work of supporting each other and I hope things improve really soon.
