any ideas on why ds is so hard to settle in the night when he wakes anytime between 4-5.30am he just roars and roars, night feeding is finished so he is outta that habit, but just wont sleep thru til 6.30/7 when he normally has a feed,

is he just going to always wake at that time? its nearly 3 mybe more wks hes be at this, and i go in settle, shsssh etc, maybe twice and he just i leave him - i have to admit.

he is 8mths this week

not much help i know but we are having exactly the same problem with DS (he's 9 months) but used to sleep through like yours... if you have any luck please let me know! i've started another thread on this... CC was the suggestion but it's hard for me as we all share one bedroom at the moment...

I think it's just a phase they go through for a couple of months - I'm sure there's many threads on it.
My ds woke between 4 and 5.30am for a good 6 weeks or so - but I just brought him into bed with us and he fell asleep again.
Hang on in there and don't stress - it will pass and they do start to sleep longer.
Just make sure they are warm enough, central heating isn't clicking in and making a noise to wake them or light coming in through the curtains. I think they are in a light sleep by this time and are easy to wake.

Could be lots of reasons - teeth, light, growth spurt, noise.......
Ds is also 8 months and mostly sleeps through but sometimes wakes in the middle of the night and is hard to console. We do sometimes feed him even though he doesn't generally have a night feed now as it does settle him down. Only if it goes on and on though - we try to settle him with strokes etc as don't want to get him back into the habit of waking for milk.

thanks all for all that, he is teething well they are really trying to push thru the final layer of skin, but the baby nurofen works well for him in the day so at night it should too,

i think its a phase as you say tracyk!

just needed a bit of moral boosting - thanks
