She is 14 wks old and I think she has just discovered the fun of having legs and kicking them around. This has also coincided with us moving her from moses basket into her cotbed. She is waking several times in the night now (instead of just once). She seems to be turning herself round by kicking (she's in a sleeping bag) I am shattered.
Please tell me her sleep will improve. Why is it that everyone I know seems to have babies who have slept through from dream feed from 12 wks?

Everyone you know is lying being economical with the truth.... grin

It does get easier...also, she's nearing the 4mth mark - she could be going through a growth spurt as well. When they start doing more during the day, they are more tired at nap times and sleep times so it will get easier - I promise!

If she is going through a growth spurt, should she not be eating more. She isnt.

Am having a very similar problem. DD has always slept well and went through a period of 11 - 7 without stirring in the night. It all started to go pear-shaped about 14wks and still hasn't got better (now 17wks). It coincided with move from Amby to cot and it seems she almost wakes herself up in the night by flailing around. She lifts her legs up and invariably kicks the side of the cot and then starts crying. Am at a loss, even tried to move her back to the hammock and although she can't move as much still wakes herself up wriggling.
Anyone else experienced this ? Save tying her down to the mattress have run out of ideas !

I just read on another website that an idea would be to tuck the end of their sleeping bag under the mattress, put a sheet over them, tucked in with rolled up towels down the sides.
We dont have top cotbed sheets because of the sleeping bag but I am thinking of trying this out for a nap and seeing what happens although I am sure dd will go mad kicking her legs out of it.
