    Default Restless at night

    Hi mums

    My 6wo seems very restless from about 1am onward most nights (after her first feed). She is making lots of grunting noises and moving around quite w but, including bringing her legs up and down.

    I feel like it's lower wind pain but I have often unwrapped her and tried to help her get rid of the wind but it generally hasn't helped. If I pick her up she will often settle immediately but then may start to move a bit in my arms.

    She generally doesn't do it at the beginning of the night or during the day. She does have reflux (recently diagnosed and put on Losec) so that could be a reason why.

    Wondering if anyone's babies do a similar thing.

    Thanks

    My DS2 did this also and had reflux, once he was on Losec it helped calm him down at night too. Used to thrash around like crazy from 2am onward.

    How long has she been on Losec? It might take a little while to come into full effect. That said, dS2 is a restless sleeper and we eventually moved him into his cot in the nursery where he seemed to sleep better and didn't disturb us with his wriggling etc.

    Also it's not uncommon for bubs to be more unsettled in the second half of the night, I find the first sleep is always the deepest and calmest.

    Not to alarm you, but children on losec can experience sleep issues.

    That being said, it your baby isn't crying don't stress about it, enjoy your sleep too. Babies are good at letting you know when they need something. It's normal for newborns to grunt and make noises during sleep.
