Does he settle after Panadol?
wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.
Sadly no and I can't use neurofen because it messes with his meds
It could be habit.
I found that with ds2.
I'm now using no cry sleep solution by Elizabeth pantley.
I'm having a lot of luck with the pull off method. He is waking less than a week ago and just nursing for a few minutes then he rolls over.
But at 4 months he was under weight so I had to feed often during the night. It does get better but it's really hard to break the habit.

I didn't give nurofen before bed last night so she woke about every hr or so, but the other night she did 3 hours
I know it's not an option for everyone, but I just did a week stay at a sleep school with DS2 (he just turned 1). He has never slept more than 2-3 hour blocks over night, and never napped in the day unless we were in the car on he fell asleep feeding on me. The sleep school helped me immensely and by the time we went home he had started sleeping through the night and having 1-2 naps each day. Still having an adjustment back home, but we have had more good nights then bad which I can manage after a year of sleep deprivation!
summastarlet? Think they're all fairly similar in their methods.
My LO is getting a bit better using the pull off method and doesn't always want to fall asleep feeding anymore, she squirms and pushes away. But then doesn't like it if I try to put her down or just cuddle her instead. So have to latch her on again on the other side so she'll settle, then try again with pull off until she's calm. It's weird. And frustrating. She'll sometimes allow me to put her in her cot asleep but not deep asleep but other times not (usually overnight!). She ended up in her pram at 2am because she wouldn't go back down and I was over it!!
I always jinx myself having trouble tonight!
