    I'd be careful with phenergan too as there is evidence that it can cause breathing to slow and breathing difficulties in under 2 year olds... I did a lot of research on it when my DS1's Paed prescribed it for severe sleep issues at 18 months and I decided against using it.

    I 'demand feed' but he never asks for it.

    I feed him when he wakes (day and night) feed him just before he goes to sleep (although he's awake when I put him down) and I feed in between randomly when I think he's hungry.

    Maybe that's my problem.

    This was my night

    9:30,10:30,11:30,12,30,1:30,2:30,3:30, 4:30,5:30,7:30


    I've never ever had a night where it was every hour, almost to the minute

    I didn't feed all those times, I don't remember when I fed, but I have both breasts just in case which made no difference.

    I tried sticking the dummy in every time to settle him and also rock his bassinet. That only worked about 2/3 times but if it did then he would wake in 30 mins anyway wanting a feed or to be rocked again.

    Yeah I did the research too but DS would wake up to 5 times an hour all night so I decided to try it the thing is that it works for the start of the night but past 11pm it doesnt anymore. They originally started him on it in hospital with an apnoea machine on him but at home we dont have that so I was a bit weary they have to wean him off it thats why he is still on it

    That was my night too SAgirl, I went to the dr today as I think something is wrong, maybe reflux or an upset tummy. He asked why I was getting up to her when she cried??? I won't be seeing him again. I got a referral for a pediatrician and will see him tomorrow. I might try a different formula.

    That's pretty much exactly how I was feeding him before I tried the schedule. Maybe give it a go and see what happens.

    Your horrible night was also one of my worse ones a couple weeks ago.

    Since I've started the schedule there's only been one night where he's woken 3 rather than 2 times and that was because I couldn't get him to have the second breast so he woke an hour later for it. Again I don't know if it's a coincidence, maybe he was coming out of it anyways.

    Last night he did 6.30-1am and then 5.30. It's 6.30 right now and he's asleep (wish I was but I can never fall back asleep after 5.30).
    @SAgirl I forgot to add that if he wakes between 5 and 6am only give him one side and save the other for 7. You want to try to ensure he's having his biggest feed at 7am.

    It's normal for babies to go into their deepest and longest sleep the first part of the night (like how my DS sleeps 6-7 hours then wakes twice to eat after that so only going 3-4 hours). So that may not even be the phanergan working.

    I know what you mean, desperate for him to sleep longer but then when he does I check on him constantly wondering why he hasn't made a noise. A reassuring grunt every 30-60 minutes would be nice!

    You should get a snooza alarm, puts my mind at ease with DS3.

    I have that and an oricom movement monitor, but I worry that maybe they won't work one time. I'm nuts, I know. I don't use the Snuza really anymore because he started getting a little heat rash where it sat when it started warming up here. So Snuza if he's in our room and his cot has the oricom.
