    Default 3 am wake up call!

    Hoping for some advice from other mums who have gone through something similar

    We've had a rough 5 weeks with my 10 week old. She got a cold, then developed reflux and amongst that we've moved twice.

    Her reflux was shocking and we went for weeks with no sleep. She has been started on omeprazole and it is working wonders, now the only problem is just trying to understand her sleep regime.

    She is going down at about 6 and asleep by about 7, wakes between 10-11, awake again at about 1-2 and then unsettled and waking every half hour after about 3. She has a bottle at each wake up except the 3am one where we are just trying to pay her back to sleep with her dummy.

    Any suggestions on why this might be happening? Is there anything we can do better to help our baby girl catch up on some much needed sleep?

    Could she be cold? 3am is when the temperature starts to drop. Just a thought.

    No advice but it sounds like you've had a big few months. Sorry she's been unsettled and unwell. I'm hoping you find what helps her get some much needed rest very soon. X

    This. Put an extra blanket on or turn the heater on at the 12-1 am feed..

    I was wondering why you dont feed again at that time? I would try feeding. Bub might go off to sleep again. Just an idea... all the best.

    Sounds like she is hungry or cold.

    We have the heater on so she's definitely not cold. And I usually don't offer a feed because she's had one an hour or two before but I might just give her one tonight and see how she goes. We give her a feed 3 hourly so even if she does have one she's still super unsettled. I saw the GP today, she thinks Bub is just one of those babies that don't sleep. She said her behaviour isn't 'normal' but there is nothing wrong with her. We just need to ride it out. Sigh.

    Do you have a thermostat controlled heater? Unless you do the temp may not be consistent/bub may be cold.

    Bub could be waking because of being aided to sleep? (Dummy/music/patting/feeding/rocking)
