    Unfortunately this part is normal. How long is he asleep before you put him down? It can take 20 minutes or so before they are in a deep sleep. DD was the same. We started putting her down awake and sitting with her and patting her to sleep, it saves the dreaded transfer to the basinette. But she was probably closer to 12 weeks old by that stage.

    Yeah, if we slow doe he starts crying until we accelerate again..
    yeah I usually let him sleep for about half hour to make sure he's out. But he somehow wakes up.. .. I've tried patting him to sleep but if he does fall asleep it's literally 10 minutes.

    N I think half the problem is we let him get into a deep sleep but his sleeps are so short that by the time we put him into bed he's already waking up

    Thanks everyone, he had a 3 hour sleep yesterday! It was in our bed while my partner woke up from night shift (DS was happy so we let him be n checked regularly) that's the best sleep he's had in around 2 weeks. And he slept through the night. Hope he has another sleep today! I need to get things ready for us to go away!

    Hi! I feel your pain. My son was identical to this, two 20 minute sleeps per day, on me, from birth til 7 months!!! My poor son screamed, constantly. Even in the car and pram! He had silent reflux. I went to 7 doctors before one would agree with me. Most laughed. He got prescribed losec and it helped (baby gaviscon didn't work). Also I used a love to dream Swaddle which is amazing and keeps hands up. I didn't have to use the losec for long either which was good. Funny thing was, he would go down at night well and everything I read said reflux babies would be worse at night!! All the best, I know how exhausting it is.

    That is fantastic! Yay for you! Sounds like the lactose in his formula could have been the culprit, silent reflux is often caused by food intolerances as they produce the acid that burns their esophagus.

    Keep persisting, I hope this is the solution and a 6 week old sleeping through! Double awesome!!!
