    Will check out a few different dummies.

    We had a good night.

    She slept from 7.30 pm without much resistance. Had the dummy but she was so tired she fell asleep with the dummy falling out. Dream fed her at 11 pm. And she woke up at 3.15 am. Fed her. She grizzled and a little cry for 15 mins after that and has been sleeping since. It's not 8.15 am. She's been sleeping for a long time! Didn't wake her up even though ideally she wakes up at 7 am.

    Or the "Happy Baby" cherrry tipped (round) one's seem to be a hit too with newborns. My DD wouldn't take that brand until she was 6 months but now uses them no problem to go to sleep.

    Or else definitely order a Premmie size off Ebay and try it. Plenty of Aussie sellers on there so you won't have to wait long for it Glad you had a better night last night Luv.

    You'll have you good days/nights and bad one's. She's a newborn baby and it takes time for them to work out their circadian rhythm to know the difference between night and day plus it's not unusual for you to be feeding them every few hours overnight anyway depending.

    This is all very normal behaviour from her and as she gets older she'll settle more into a routine both in the day and night (barring any medical issues that can impact on a babies ability to sleep).

    I know it's tiring/exhausting at times, but this stage will pass. It will be gone in the blink of an eye so just hang in there. You're doing a fantastic job!!!

    One thing to remember with a comforter is to try and get a cotton one. Most these days are polyester which is synthetic and not breathable.

    Not sure if muslin is natural or synthetic though.

    I'm using bamboo muslin face washers as a comforter. They're small , soft and very light and totally breathable. She rubs it all over her face as she goes to sleep. And best of all $15 for a 6 pack so I have lots of backups! I usually have one in the car seat and Pram for her. I got these as I was too worried about anything bigger/thicker while she was little and noticed she loved rubbing the muslin on her face if I put it over her in the Pram.

    Default Sleeping - help!

    Here is an interesting article on the affects of crying it out on babies. Every mother has to ultimately follow her instincts but it can't hurt read it..

    http://breastfeedingtoday-llli.org/cry-it-out/

    For what it's worth my 6.5mth old is awake every 2 hours for a feed., we're slowly teaching her to fall asleep without the breast but it's softly...

    OP as a note in this article it's important to differentiate between Controlled Crying and Cry It Out.

    Controlled crying is when you do go in and check on Bub at different intervals, cry it out is when you leave them until they're asleep no matter how long it takes.

    The only similarity is that both won't work effectively before 6 months old as babies haven't learnt the theory of permanence. If your baby can't see you, they think you're gone, they don't understand that you can come back. But after 6 months if you're doing CC and you check in on Bub and leave, she will realise you can come back and you will continue to come me back until she is asleep.

    Hopefully with some patting and shhhhing you have some success prior to 6 months (or if and whenever you decide to try any other form of sleep training)

    If you want to wean off the dummy at that age you could always go cold turkey. A gentle approach could be to wiggle the dummy out of bubs mouth when bub is very drowsy but not asleep. You may have to try this a couple of times before bub drifts off.

    Yes replacing a dummy with a comforter is replacing one aide for another. However it's replacing one that is renowned for leading to night waking/requires adult intervention to maintain with one that helps a bub sleep through without adult intervention. Big difference...

    Any reasons why bub isn't swaddled properly, including arms? At 6 weeks I would absolutely still be swaddling bub. Bubs do not lose the startle reflexs until 4-6 months.

    When my first borne was about the same age I stood near the bedroom door and watched him try to fall asleep with a dummy. He would nearly be asleep, the dummy would fall out, his little face would screw up and he would start crying. I out the dummy back in, and the same thing happened. After about the 4th time I thought "f this. I'm not going to have a long convoluted bedtime process each night this is ridiculous." Dummy went in the bin.

    Curious - not sure what cry it out has to do with comforters or dummies?
