    After receiving some age-appropriate settling advice we were all good within a week (wish I had phoned earlier)! Similar thing happened at about 21 months too, toughed it out for a month then managed to get back on track within 3 nights with some advice from the Karitane helpline.

    Default Anyone skip the 4 month sleep regression

    Dd2 got the 4mth one and went from 1-2 overnight feeds to 3-5. Now at 6mths she's doing 1 overnight feed in 10-11hrs.

    I used a dummy to work out if she was hungry or sucky. Turned out she was sucky so I offered her a dummy for all wake ups less than 3hrs after a feed. only fed her if she cracked it completely.

    Once She hit 6mths and started solids and really started eating - I increased it to 4hrs gap and last week 5hrs.

    Now i have ditched the dummy for resettles and gone to patting or shushing. Only use it now to put her to sleep as she loves suckling to sleep. She then spits it out when snoring.

    I do use the dummy during day naps to help her go thru sleep cycles. Shove it in at 35-40min mark and she spits it out when back in deep sleep.

    Fixed my catnapper

    My first woke every 3 hours for feeds until 7 months. My next slept 7pm until 7am from about 4 weeks and still does now at 4 years. My third and final is 4 and a half months now and has slept 7 until 7 from 10 weeks. No sleep regression at all only time it changes is if they have a cold and they are usually just restless for a night or two. I have no idea why they sleep so well and I feel so so blessed every day. I rarely mention their sleeping habits as I feel it might upset people with bubs who have sleep issues - I just try to stay out of those conversations. I have breastfed all 3 (still BFing number 3) and have never done any form of controlled crying.

    DD4 did her 10 weeks straight of waking hourly or more then just came straight out of it and went straight back to her former routine of 12+ hours a night.

    None of mine went through it! My oldest was my worst sleeper (6-8 hours straight through from birth to 2 months then woke multiple times a night and still does occasionally and she is 5). The other 2 slept 10+ hours straight a night from 6 weeks and that's how it's stayed! Even through teething.

    Neither of mine have had either. Both started to sleep through between 10-12 weeks.

    DS is 3 now and occasionally wakes up. But it's not very often. We did have a rough patch with him at about 14 months I think he was. He decided than from 1-2am-5am was party time and just would not go back to sleep before 5 no matter how much we rocked, walked, fed etc. after a week or so of it, I used to snooze on the lounge while he played at my feet as I was exhausted! And slowly started to put him back to bed 15 mins earlier every 3-4 nights. I think it was about 6 weeks before he went back to just sleeping through. I hope DD doesn't so it when she gets to that age. It was hardcore and I barely made it through!!

    It hit us badly - DS had started to sleep through and suddenly it was every 3 hours again. Unfortunately things didn't improve until we spent four nights at QEII when he was 11 months old.

    It was tough, but it's so much better now.

    DS1 missed it
    . Either that or he had it at 3 days, not 3 months


    DS2 had a serious setback at about 7 weeks, and never really recovered
    . But maybe that was me assuming that's what babies were like, after DS1 was such a bad sleeper.

    DD is starting to get the hang of sleeping at night, and is three months, so I'm hoping she skips right over it too

    very blessed indeed. And it's perfectly fine sharing, so we do know babies who sleep well do exist!
