    Default Intermittent morning waking?

    My beautiful 6 month old boy wakes intermittently between 2am & 6am ... I finally drag myself out of bed and start the day 6.
    he was feeding at 2am, but then woke intermittently, we held the feed off til 4 but he still woke intermittently from 2am.
    We cut out the 4am feed and he still wakes intermittently from around 2.It's pretty much every hour ...
    We resettle him in his cot when he wakes.

    His room is relatively light, this may be the problem, I don't believe he is too hot or cold.
    Needless to say we are getting pretty exhausted ....



    Any suggestions?
    I'm sure I'm not the only one !?!

    The only thing I can think of is to make the room darker if you think that is why he is waking. We have put a Doona cover over DS curtain rail to make his room darker to test it before we buy a block out curtain.

    Have you recently started solids? DD did this when she started for a few weeks. Otherwise I would say its probably a stage that will pass. Try the curtains but I didn't find it helped with mine. Good luck

    Yep we have started solids .... So perhaps it will settle down!
    Then it will be teething next!
    Always something I guess!
    i'll just prepare myself for broken sleep for the next 5 years?
    10?
    more?.....???

    Nothing good to regress from!
    Maybe ... I'll be patient ... See what happens!
