hi i have a 5 1/2 month old waking every hour or so though night we do get a couple 2 hour spots in middle but lots of 1 hours
he is sleeping better during the day of late, we had issues early on so had a sleep lady come out to the house to help with day times.
But now im just getting over lack of sleep i have just gone back to work only 3 days he loves childcare and sleeps well there
i put him to sleep just after 615 each night after a bath and food. He gos down well but then wakes each hour after just for a bit of boob comfort then gos back to sleep. i have worked out he really is only having a full drink every 3 hours.
i have been trying leaving him for a bit longer see if he settles him self that didn't work he work up to much and screamed the house down
try the putting him on the boob for minute the popping a dummy in worked a couple of times, not now but he has never really liked the dummy.
tried a rocking him like we used to during the day nope screaming
now been trying to fill him up with lots of food and milk he had over 200ml of bottle (lots for him) and about 2+ tbs of pumpkin still no luck
he used to sleep 6 hours first off till about 3 months or so i think my brain doesn't no time much
we have been to natropath who says he has local anasetic in him so we have drops to give him, that's what she thinks is the prob but its been 3 weeks on drops still no change. She also says he has no alergis
we go to the ciro who is giving him laser like acupuncher (sorry bad spelling) witch he thinks that should help it was a bit not so much now and helping with flat spot on head its popping out almost normal
im really thinking of sleep school next
does any one else have any ideas?

What sleeps is he having during the day? 6.15 is early for bed, is he showing tired signs then? Also, what is he having to eat during the day? At 5.5 months my DS suddenly got really hungry and needed to increase his solids.
Any other signs it could be teething?

Maybe bubs needs some more mummy time. It's a big change for both you and him. Was he in childcare before you went back to work? hope he improves soon. It's hard work working on no sleep!
