After teasing me with two nights of 5hrs of uninterrupted sleep, last night DD was up to her 2-3hourly feeds again....
Please please pretty please sleep 6hrs again tonight. It was nice to feel human again for two days.

Hi I have an almost 4 week old boy who has silent reflux. His also a tummy sleeper as have all my others been. His also a terrible sleeper it can take me up to 4 hours to get him down using the walk and pat technique. This entire time though he is unsettled and rarely lets me put him down at last weigh when he was 2 weeks old he was 5kg! I also have a 3 year old that is getting literally no attention because of this and is also having her sleep disturbed. Ive tried a number of things to fix his sleep issues but nothing works. Ive got no help DP is a baker so he leaves for work at 2.30am earlier if the kids are playing up as he has no idea how to help!

Its so hard when they are that young.
Have you tried cutting out dairy?
My oldest had the worst time getting to sleep and sounds like what you are going through.
Dairy made the silent reflux worse and nothing else helped.
With your partner get him to walk bub while you read to your 3 yr old and put to bed. Or other way around. My dh is hopeless unless I tell him what I need. No hints just tell him.

I don't understand it. I've done all the "right things". Put baby down awake. No sleep aids. Leave her for awhile before going in. Controlled crying. Now at 12.5 months, she's crept back up to 2-3 wake ups a night (not as bad as some, I know, dd at 6 months was 5-6 times) and I thought it would be improving, but getting worse. It's frustrating as all hell, like it's my fault as a parent.

Thankfully it has improved to just once most nights, except on those he is over tired like last night.
He has started only sleeping for an hr around 11am instead of 2 plus. He had a birthday party in the arvo yesterday so no way would he have an afternoon nap. So of course we were up 3 times again last night and he wouldn't settle for almost an hour the last time.
Makes me feel like never going out anymore, but then we both go insane stuck at home.
And of course it is a work day for me today so I have to go to work exhausted again.
