My cheeky LO settles very well every night and sleeps pretty much through the night except two feeds at around 1 and 4 am. He is 9 weeks +.
during the day he loves his naps but I have a problem re-settling him when he half wakes and cries for. I try to give him the dummy but he would still cry. Sometimes I give him a bit of formula (but its not milk time) or boob and he goes back sleeping but may still wake up crying soon. Almost every time I have to pick him up and cuddle and ssshhh to settle him. And sometimes he's not happy i put him down. He wants to sleep but in my arms. Sometimes I pop him into the swing and he's able to sleep better.
i could do all that at home but am concerned when we are out shopping or dining. If he half wakes in his pram he would cry as well and I ended up carrying him, not being able to shop or have to take turns with dh to carry him and eat. We have brought the pram out a few times ended not using. And I can't boob him anytime I need in public or carry some warm formula waiting for him to stir and cry. And I have no swing to pop him into.
what do you do to re-settle bub if he still wants to sleep? Leaving him to cry and self-settle is no no cos he eventually cry himself awake.
