    Can I add my two bobs? What strikes me about these bubs with many wake ups is that when they wake up each time you try something different each time, which can confuse bub.

    I remember reading on the baby sleep site someone referenced in a PP, is that its not the way you settle bub that matters, but that what ever you choose to do, its done consistently.

    Has anyone tried using a comforter with your smell on it to give bub comfort when he wakes up and you're not there?

    I understand what you're saying. We have a comforter, it's never helped and don't think it will until he's older and can find it. I've slept with it many times to make it stink of me and he doesn't seem to care.

    I feel I'm pretty consistent but what was working isn't anymore so it's trial and error to figure out what will work again. I'm also pretty confident this is all developmental so I think unfortunately it's just a case of riding it out. It's also an issue of what's going to get me the most sleep on a particular night so I need to do what works for me as well, especially during phases like this. I sleep better with him near me but unfortunately we're in a noisey London flat and it's light at 4am so it's trial and error to work around that as well. Last night at his 3am wake up I noticed dawn breaking through the windows when I went to the bathroom at 3.30! Annoying! I've got horrible anxiety right now (psych calling today about meds) so some nights I just need to do what keeps my heart calm because then I'll sleep and that usually means sleeping next to him with him in his own safe sleep space. That's easier in our room because we have a bednest attached to our bed but then we have the issue of light.

    We are moving next week to a much quieter place and I'm purchasing more portable black out blinds for our windows! So there will at least be consistency with rooms and neither of us will have to move around so much.

    I do try to remind myself that he's only 17 weeks and waking twice a night is to feed is normal. Last week's wakings were horrible but they seem to have passed. It's nice to be able to come on here and chat with other hubbers whose babies are all doing the exact same thing.

    Tried a comforter didn't work. Also every time DS is settled it's only ever a pat on the bum and if after 10 minutes it hasn't worked I get him out of the cot and sit in the rocking chair in his room with him once he has dozed off I put him back. He never leaves his room at night. Nothing changes. And still he wakes.

    Woohoo SAgirl. I hope that fixes things for you. I stopped solids and have had two good nights since I stopped. I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or if it's upsetting her.

    I haven't started solids yet, i was going to start round 5.5 months.

    What's the current recommendation? When I had DS1 they said 6 months but I've heard people talking about 4 months lately?
