My now 12 week old is very on and off with sleep at the minute! Some nights she will sleep right through til 4am before wanting a feed and other nights she wakes at 12 then every 3 hours!

We start the bedtime routine at 7, give her a bath, feed her and read to her. She goes down between 8 and half past. We wake for the day at around 7.30, sometimes later if she's been up every 3 hours from 12!

Is this normal to be so inconsistent? How can I get her to consistently sleep though and only want one feed during the night?

My baby is 11 weeks old and for the last week his sleeping has been very unsettled. He used to go down at 7pm, wake at 4am for a feed, go back down and then wake again at 6-7am when I’d get him up for the day. For the last week though he was waking up every 1-2 hours and was really hard to settle back down.

Do you have the Wonder Weeks app? My baby was going through a developmental leap which explained why he was sleeping so badly. His leap has now ended and last night he slept 7pm - 4am - 6.30am again. If you haven’t got it I’d definitely recommend downloading it. It makes you feel better knowing why they’re sleeping so badly and you can see when it will end
