    Default How long 4 month sleep regression?

    I'm dying here! My DD is almost 17 weeks and was sleeping through and has now started waking at crazy hours! I have been feeding her at one of her wakings.
    Please give me some good news, how long did this phase last for you?

    Lasted 6 weeks for me, just got over it this past week and things are back on track and I have regained my sanity. It seemed to go on forever...
    I fell into the trap of feeding too much and that probably made it worse. Hang in there!

    It's lasted 10 months for us. She used to sleep through but I have given up now that she's 14months. Sorry to be negative. I have gotten used to it though and I can see the funny side usually. Sometimes she'll only wake a couple of times funny enough the way I get rest is to go to work!

    We had a bad patch at about 5 months, lasted a few weeks. We resolved it by feeding more during the day and introducing protein into his diet.

    The worst part (1-2 hourly wakings) lasted 5 months for us, then another 3 or so months of 1 - 3 wakes a night. Sorry, not exactly good news! Hopefully it doesn't last long for you
