Help. My 6 month old has about one good night a fortnight where he would only wake up once. But any other day I have to go in 5- 6 times to resettle him. He is fine as soon as I take him in my arms, doses back off. Once I put him back in the cot he sleeps either 1 hour or 2 hour stretches.
He is not hungry I believe. I give him a dreamfeed and then another feed about midnight or 1 am and then he will go to about 7 am without BF. Im not sure why if it is maybe cramps in his belly from the solids. He does some fluffs - im not going to say fart because really they are tiny fluffs i feel when i put my hand on his nappy, not the loud bashing farts lol. There are so many things i can think of maybe teething, wind, cramps, maybe cold? although he has a sleeping bag plus extra blanket. I just cant figure out what the problem is exactly because one night he is really good, the next night is a total disaster.
His day naps are fine, three naps and he goes to bed on his own, rarely crying
I dont want to do CIO because i believe there is a reason behind this. and no i dont believe the books that say babies are 'manipulating' mum and dad
could it be too busy rolling and playing in the day that he is trying to make up for cuddles he misses out on during the day? he is very active lately.
i dont know i have no idea but DH and I are so sleep deprived
any one else's 6 month bub doing this?
