    Default HELP... Save me from bad night sleeper.... :(

    My son is 7 months old, used to be an ok night sleeper, start to get up to 8 hr stretches, but a terrible catnapper during the day. I did a karitane stay and learnt some techniques to get him to sleep better at 5 1/2 months. Hardwork but he was starting to make progress.... However at around 6 months it all went pear shaped, he started sleeping better during the day but waking for hours on end during the night. I just went with and kept With what id learnt as I knew he was constipated due to the solids he had started and he was teething, so fast forward the teeth are up and constipation cleared up but still waking at night.
    He is breastfed once overnight around 10-11pm and the not until morning, he is a big boy and eating three solids a day very well. He also has very mild reflux which he is medicated for.

    So this morning he was awake at midnight through to just after 3am, everytime he would fall asleep something would wake him and he'd start crying again or just be wide awake just rolling around like it was morning???? So I have been consistent with my patting to sleep and not getting out of the cot same as the daytime but nothing's helping it's been weeks, surely he gets it right?????

    Help me, could something be wrong with him belly ache to much solids? Hard time digesting?
    Should I look into a chiro, i feel like I've tried everything else...

    I can't cope on 3hrs of sleep a night.

    Thanks.

    And was he a good sleeper before? I found my daughter around that age did the same thing... she was always a good sleeper.
    Did he just start sitting up?
    I was researching when this happened to her and its common fir babies to do this when they hit a major milestone eg sitting up, crawling.
    It could just be teething as well.

    Your babies sleep times are the same as mine so I really can't say that's the problem??

    Do u talk to him when he wakes up?

    Also, if you could roll some towels under his mattress at the top so he sleeps elevated that could help as it might be pain from reflux

    I don't really have any advice sorry but DS was awake for hours at night, and it sort of settled around 12 months. We stopped giving him tomatoes which helped - could he have a food allergy or something causing him discomfort?

    I had such trouble with my now 1 year old at that age, he had been on solids for awhile by then ( 6 months) but was waking constantly through night not settling easy, it also seemed like he wasn't comfortable or he was in pain.
    First I changed from losec suspension to losec tablets as the liquid just wasn't strong enough for him .this helped so maybe see if you have the correct dosage and what other reflu meds are available?

    Also I realised certain foods ( even though he loved them ) were triggering his reflux/ wind . These were tuna, anything tomato, dairy etc I switched from ar formula to a lactose free formula and put him back to basics with solids and starts dintroducing it all again slowly ... He now is 1 and eats everything and is on cows milk it was just a phase.
    I also co slept from 6-11 months to help me feel better rested.
