Where can you buy it from? Does it have a flavour? I have no idea why bonjella is aniseed flavour! Bleugh

Yeah we have that one and the raspberry flavour is much nicer but I find that too any strong enough
Hey - sorry you are having a rough time. That 4 month sleep regression sucks big time. There are plenty of gentle things you can do to help reduce the length and severity of the 4 month sleep regression (ensuring bedding and room temp is appropriate, timing day sleeps appropriately, always putting bub to bed where you intend bub to wake, stop using a sleep aid such as dummy, feed, rocking - while bub is super drowsy but not asleep etc).. Check out your local MACH clinic - many run some great sleep sessions.
Here's another awesome article on the 4 month sleep regression. In short don't assume bub is hungry every time when bub wakes - try resettling first.
I agree with Vic Parks suggestions. I think a good routine is beneficial, no sleep aids such as a dummy, rocking. I am also not in favour of co sleeping. I think the thing a baby needs to learn is being able to self settle on his/her own when they wake and once they learn this they will sleep better. It just takes persistance. Creating habits such as having to feed, rock baby to sleep makes baby reliant on those things and makes it all the more difficult for all in my opinion. Habits are hard to break. I read and followed the sleep guide with ds2, there is great tips and advice and it gives you an understanding of sleep in general. Wish I had it for ds1! I have a 7 year old, 4 yr old and a 10month old who are all great sleepers.
My kids all slept through at different ages.
DD1 was 4 months when she slept through.
DS was 18 months.
DD2 slept through at less than a week old but went through a horrible stage at 4 months. During this time I put her in bed with me. It passed after 6 weeks.
All my babies had dummies and didn't wake for it during the night.
