You are right here! Tuesday she was really off too but went back to self settling and sleeping at least 1hr 20 again.

DD is on Nexium which is the same but a higher dose. The bed is also tilted.

I think this might well have been the case as the 5am waking hasn't happened since I've added an extra bamboo blanket.

in people's experience, once babies learn to self settle in the day and night, can they generally continue to do so as they get older (other than during illness, teething or growth spurts) or are sleep regressions still inevitable as they get older / past 6 months?
