    All babies are obviously different but the link I posted above mentions babies needing night feeds still at 6 months. Just mentioning it as I don't think you'd have much success with that until he's 6 months.

    That's what I thought. I don't want to cut out all of them. Just wouldn't mind going more than 2hrs

    You could try and stretch him out slowly to 3 hours or more but do it gradually and try to feed more during the day might help but he is very young so keep that in mind

    I think patting the mattress would p!ss him off, but same principle as bottom pat. Gonna try do it in the cot next week, god help me.
    That's great well done. As I said before do what works for you and baby just be consistent and slowly taking away 1 thing at a time is the recommendation. I did no rocking and then no patting for a few weeks before anything else

    You can definitely try and cut some of them you think it's habit and not hunger. Just not all feeds yet.

    That's ok @MrsTugs no hijacking, sort of nice to know I'm not all alone in this boat (not that I'm wishing sleep deprivation on you). I don't want to ask dh to resettle because he's a roof tiler and I'm afraid if he's tired during the day... Well you can imagine. Your DS is a hungry one, huh? Mine is old enough now to have very few or no night feeds but it's just become a habit. And it's blardy hard in the middle of the night when it's a quick fix. @A-Squared you've definitely convinced me to avoid cc if I can, I like hearing about people who've nipped their sleep problems in the bud. I can't handle all the "oh, he's only this little once, you'll miss it, mine is 5 and only wakes 3x a night now" advice. I'll have a breakdown if I continue this for another 3 years.

    I don't expect hubby to help during the week at all but Friday and Saturday he is 100% involved no questions asked. I don't actually sleep any longer (I can't sleep through a screaming baby like he can) but at least my eyes are closed.

    How do they manage to sleep through everything? And when he complains that he's "so tired" I just shoot daggers at him with my bloodshot eyes.
