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.
Keep persisting, I hope this is the solution and a 6 week old sleeping through! Double awesome!!!
I'm hoping it works! If he has one big sleep I'm happy. Small victories !
You guys have been excellent! It's great to have so many people offering advice, I don't feel so alone with it now you guys are amazing!
