    Default 11week old waking often

    I have an 11week old who up until a couple of weeks ago was settling well in her cot and slept soundly. She developed reflux and became unsettled so it was an "anything goes" scenario of getting her to sleep including in my arms and a lot of dummy use. She is starting to improve on meds but now is struggling to have a deep sleep waking as soon as the dummy is out (every 5-20 minutes) and can't seem to sleep without it.

    What can I do to help her stay asleep. I pat and shhhh til she is asleep but she wakes still.

    My DD was the same but hated to be swaddled. We used a swaddle suit and she slept through the first night we put her in it and is still sleeping through. We give her a dummy to get to sleep but take it off her when she falls asleep.

    Shes in a love to dream swaddle. I used to wrap her with a muslin wrap but found the zip up ones easier in the middle of the night.

    It's just during the day that's is the issue

    I'll try taking it out when I notice her asleep. Would she teethe at this age?? She has been sucking her fist a lot too but not sure if that's a reflux comfort thing as well??

    I had this problem in the day from
    week 6 - 13. I have no real advice but after week 13 she did stop and started sleeping for two lots of 1 hour in the day plus maybe a 30 min stint. That's all they need in the day.
    I found burping her a lot more helped
    And once she started getting better at tummy time and playing with toys more it really started wearing her out more
    Sorry I'm not much help
    Oh and the sucking hands is burpies wanting to come out. Lots and lots of burping and half hour in bouncer after feeds. They get better at burping after a while.

    DD is always sucking her fist. We noticed her being a bit gassy and sucking was helping her relieve it. Since we've been giving her infants friend and it seems to help a lot and she doesn't want the dummy anywhere near as much.
