Please help me before this gets out of control!! My DD is now 19 weeks and we had a really rough start (terrible day sleeps, reflux). We finally made some headway around 10-11 weeks.
I can get her down quite well for 3-4 naps during the day of 45 minutes - 2 hours. When she wakes at 45 minutes I do try to resettle but if she's decided she's awake then that is it nothing will get her back to sleep.
I do not feed to sleep and she doesn't have a dummy. Her sleep routine is dark room, white noise up loud, wrapped (need to transition to sleeping bag that's a separate issue), quick cuddle then into cot awake. If grizzly I push the cot til she settles. She doesn't like sleeping on me or in my bed only the cot which is a blessing in disguise.
Night sleeps the past 6 weeks were good. She goes to bed between 6/7pm and wakes around 7-8am with 1-2 feeds in between (exclusively breastfed). This week she has started 'babbling' when I try put her to bed and can go on for a while. Big problem though is she's waking 3-4 times a night and staying awake babbling (no grizzling or crying just talking to herself). She stays awake for an hour each time doing this. I have tried feeding her which she'll take but I don't want to feed her that often overnight as it's unnecessary. I have tried pushing the cot to resettle and just leaving her (she eventually goes back to sleep by herself). My issue is she's in my room - I can't sleep with her talking so loud - but also this disrupted sleep has the potential to go bad I know. Is this the dreaded 4 month regression? What do I do?!! Just ignore it as she is going back to sleep by herself?
