Feeling like a failure

Like so many mum's here I'm exhausted. My baby won't sleep in cot at night, just thrashes around til he's crying. Sometimes I pick him up early to try to settle.him, sometimes I wait to see if he will just settle.

I read jealously about babies sleeping 4-5 hours a night and mum's not being happy with that. I woukd give anything for 4 hours sleep.

When does it improve? I'm losing my mind

Oh no! How old is your little one OP? Sending you tonnes of good vibes ✨✨✨ I have just put my one month old to bed after spending a whole hour trying to get him to burp

Also I'm not including the two hours of feeding prior to that! So exhausted now

I understand that you are tired, but try to stay calm. You should consult a doctor because the child will not cry all night just for anything. My son couldn't sleep because he was hampered bu stomach pains.
