    Choccie I really hope things improve, it sounds exhausting My first was a terrible sleeper and I remember thinking it would never get better but I didn't really do anything about it till 5 months with her so not sure I have any advice, just hugs!

    Toni - your routine also sounds very tiring, I hope you are managing to get some rest.

    I seem to have a day sleeper He is so tired all the time, but the paed said he would be, I struggle to wake him during the day to feed but then at night he wakes every 1.5hrs... He feeds and goes back to sleep but its tiring. I shouldn't complain, my big babies fed a lot more often but there is a whole new set of struggles with a little babe.

    Thanks swizzly ..... It gets depressing after a while cause u just start thinking why in the world wot he settle to sleep longer than 30mins and why does he have so much wind all the time, we use infants friend, burp at every 40mls so 4 times a bottle, keep him up right for 15 mins afterwards, his bed is elevated, he's on reflux formula, losec since last Thursday.... Have no idea what else there is to try!!! I have used 'white noise' womb music in his room, he wants his dummy one minute then doesn't want it the next!!!!! Tried putting him in his swing to be rocked back to sleep today, that even failed!!!

    Have you thought about sleep school? Not sure where you are but with my second bub I considered taking him to Tresilian (I think that was the name) where you spend a week working with health staff on how to get bubs to settle and sleep. It sounds like the reflux is another issue but maybe they can help there too?

    I live remote.... in Karratha! I'm not sure if its the reflux waking him or if its his flappy airway making him gasp for air so then waking him in the process? He wasn't like this until week 3...
    I have tried to follow the SOS routines and even tried her cry to sleep, self settling techniques, which was torture!!! He responded slightly then on day 5 went backwards so I gave up! He had cried that much that his voice had gone raspy and I felt terrible!
    Anyways he is only 7 weeks old so I'm not sure sleep school would even be considered?
    I have doc app on wed for our check ups and hopefully she might have the answers, I'm also going to get a referral to see the pead again just to double check!

    Swizzly: routine is tiring but I have mum here and she often does the formula bottle while I express. Also DP does the burping and settling overnight while I express which helps.

    Choccie: I hope something is sorted soon and you manage to get some rest.

    Choccie do they have ngala in karratha or maybe just give them ring and they can try to help over the phone and maybe if it does continue a trip to Perth might be good and they can do a sleep thing where you spend a period there like in hospital to assess the problem areas and stuff... Well that's what I hear and what they advertise anyways I just found a magnet in one of the purple books they have a wa country access so it might be worth a try

    I don't know if you've already tried this, have you had him sleep on his side (with a sleep positioner of course) to see if he wakes up as much? That might help to tell you if it's his airway or reflux because if it's airway he's less likely to have trouble if he's on his side. Maybe try having him nap on his side (obviously in the same room as you) and see if it helps at all?

    Hi all!! Thanks for the tips!
    Nila we don't have Ngala they come to visit every 3 months and the waiting list is stupid! I might give them a call if I get desperate!

    Eko- yes I do sleep him on his side all the time with a sleep positioner, it only helps sometimes as he prefers to sleep with his hands above next to his head... Also good for making sure he doesn't get a flat head!

    I did have some success today, he slept for 3 hours this morning YES! Then another hour at lunch was up briefly and now another hour!! It's feed time in 10 mins so he will probably be awake soon, so glad he got some good sleep today.
    He has been doing so well at night after a dream feed at 10 he is getting through til 5 am!!
    Today has been a positive day... Here is a smile
