    Been happening for around 3-4 weeks now is that normal? His always been a terrible sleeper but nothing like this. I'm a walking zombie and DP is far from helpful.

    Lol. Yes the 4 months regression.
    That's when my great sleeper turned to hell.
    My only advice is any thing you want to change do now.
    While the sleep is bad anyway.
    I made the mistake of trying to get back into what he used to like but he had moved on.
    Good luck.

    Don't feed bub back to sleep each time he wakes (try resettling first...) feeding at each waking can cause a habit if waking for a feed when it is not needed... And before you know it bubs body becomes used to calorie intake at night so it then becomes a need. Also, it's even more important to not use sleep aids such as patting/rocking/feeding to sleep (these will make the wakings worse). Put bub to bed drowsy but awake.

    DS has feeding problems so will only feed every 4-5 hours anyway. Even when he is starving hungry he will refuse a bottle if it's before those hours. I never get him out of the cot I just simply stand and shush or pat his bum otherwise he gets hysterical. I've also taken his dummy away it made a difference for the first 2 nights but after those nights not at all. And my paed even put him on phenergan or how ever u spell it as he was in hospital for 4 days and didn't sleep. It didn't work.

    I know vp's intentions are good, and by all means if anyone is able to follow those recommendations then definitely do so because it may save you a lot of trouble later on. But for me, patting and shushing is a huge step forward with dd and ill keep on doing it. They do wean themselves off it eventually- I did the same with my boys
    @LiterallyNoOne 4-5 wakings per hour is not normal, and is not 4 month sleep regression. You have had it hard right from the start with this little man, and I did just see you mention the pead, so I guess you're exploring all medical avenues. Keep going, ask for help and and if you can and try and find time for you. You are doing a wonderful job xx

    I have finally been able to put dd down in her cot and pat, shush and sing her to sleep for 5 nights in a row now, and she doesn't get upset at all. She is just accepting of it. And when she tries to stab I just tell her to lay down and she does!
    I'm sure you'll all understand how big a deal this is for me, and what a huge improvement! Next I'm trying to prolong time between wakings and in trying to stick to the rule of no bed sharing before midnight. Hopefully it all slowly improves!

    I had a friend tell me today after not seeing us since early April that dd seems more relaxed and less stuck to me- I think it has a lot to do with her mastering crawling, so hopefully by the time she is walking she will have chilled a bit more and this effects her sleep too!
    Wow. Like, actually WOW!!! So you just gave it a try one night and it worked? It's amazing how it just falls into place when THEY are ready. Awesome news, Noms.

    My little Miss is still very clingy, but her day sleeps have improved a lot this week. She's sleeping for around 1.5 hrs twice a day. It's awesome. She had several good nights too (inc.a six hour stretch!!!!) but that's now ended.
    I'm implementing the No Cry Sleep Solution which will be very gradual but feel like I'm taking a step in the right direction at least.

    There must be something more behind five wakings in an hour. Some discomfort perhaps. I would just be doing whatever you need to do to get some rest, both of you. And be seeing the doctor if it persists.

    We've tried everything from different material sheets to sleeping bags and normal blankets we tried showers and baths also changing his soap and the washing powder to no avail. Nothing's working and we see the paed every 2-4 weeks now she believes it's habit and hoped that if the med worked he would break the habit and slept better but it didn't work. Sleep school is in 10 days. Hopefully it's works last night it was once an hour which is a vast improvement but it changes from day to day. Can't even sleep during the day as he only sleeps 30 mins at nap times.

    I'm with @Nomsie. I fed to sleep till I weaned at 17-18mths. Then pat or shush. Now I just hold their hands as they drop off to dreamland.

    You need to do what's works with your parenting ideology.

    You sure it's not teething? Both my kids were shocking teethers. 30-45min wake ups all night.
