    Default 3 month old waking

    Hi All,

    Not sure if anyone else has been through this but for the past few weeks my 3 month old sleeps from 7pm for roughly 6 hours waking for a feed. My problem is that after he feeds he keeps waking afterwards every sleep cycle so I am up every 45mins from about 2am onwards (with or without dummy, doesnt matter) until I finally bring him into bed with us at 5.30am and he sleeps fine then.

    His sleep through the day is fine for the first cycle, ALWAYS wakes after 45 mins then will only resettle if I give him the dummy.

    Just after some advice on what has worked for others in regard to resettling as I have a 2 year old so always concerned he will wake up his sister if i leave him to self settle/cry.....

    Thanks in advance

    No real advice on resettling here, I have a non sleeper too! But given you said that your bubs is fine once in with you, I'm wondering if they are cold, & that's waking them up every sleep cycle? Just a thought

    Can you just bring him into bed when he first wakes at 2?

    I have the exact problem with our 3month old. She sleeps in a side car cot beside our bed so slightly different on that detail. We have found heating her sheets (with a gel pack 10mins before we put her down) helps, but not always. When you have the answer please let me know!! I'm tired!!!

    Same prob with our 8wk old - we are trying tonight using a heat pack to warm the cot periodically.

    Failing that I'm taking her to bed with me. She doesn't wake up for 3-4hrs then.

    Exactly the same issue with my 11 week old ... 7pm until midnight and then every hour or so until I get the irrits and start the day at 5.30/6.00am with a groan

    Its exhausting ... Let's hope it's just a phase ...

    I'm doing what I did with my first - go to bed at 7. That way I get uninterrupted sleep for a few hours. Then just start my day early.
