My DS is still a bit hit and miss at night, he has his 2nd tooth coming through so think that's bugging him a bit, I do think that his day sleeps have got better though, well the past few days have been better.
Last night he woke 4 times but they were spaced out enough that i had to feed him.
I think he woke 10:30pm, 3am, 5:30am
Mmm okay maybe he only woke 3 times? I'm so tired I forget and get confused...
I did give him Panadol before bed though for his teeth
One thing I'm curious about - he seems to be turning his head downwards a lot lately....
So eg if he's sitting in his car seat capsule, he pulls his head forwards and downwards as if he's straining to sit up, if and when he does this while sitting on my lap, I lift him to stand but he hangs his head down... He just won't lift his head!!
It's only been the past few days... Is that normal? It seems as if he is almost too tired to lift his head up, but he has the strength as it's quite difficult for him to do it whilst in his car seat... Iykwim
He isn't rolling yet either and still not fantastic at tummy time
Is that something I should worry about?
He's 4.5 months

Definitely teething 😔. The past few nights his two wakes ups has gone to three so last night I tried to resettle for one, absolutely lost it. He's never cried in the middle of the night to the point that nothing worked, wouldn't feed or anything. If he's ever cried it's been because I've taken too long to feed him and it stops immediately once he latches. Had to shove Panadol in him and then finally got him to take a bottle of ebm. He's fine this morning but I think I can see six teeth under his gums!!! Took him to the GP yesterday about pulling his ear (just in case) and she definitely felt one tooth and said his gums were hard all the way around. Besides last night he's not fussy though.
He's also started having explosive green poo rather than just diarrhea. I know this can mean too much foremilk but I'm not feeding him any differently. I just feel worried something's going on, but know it's probably just teeth. What do you think?
His naps have slowly been getting better as well, slowly growing out of the catnapping and if he does wake between sleep cycles it's easier to get him back in a deep sleep. So that's good.

HGL I reckon it does sound like teeth then, wow 6!!!

Ps DS HATES Panadol!! To the point where he cries hysterically, won't latch, gags, spits it out / regurgitates it

Panadol brand or paracetamol?
Try dymadon, if its Panadol brand as Panadol us cherry flavour - I for one know cherry flavour is quite possibly the most hideous taste in the world.
Dymadon is orange flavour. My DD hated Panadol too but loooves dymadon! She puts the empty syringe to her mouth afterwards trying to get more out.

I'm in uk so it's Calpol not Panadol and I assume tastes equally awful! I may look for an orange flavor as I've had a couple people say their child loves the orange Panadol.

It's the Panadol brand and yes, cherry flavour.
I think it's just because it's such a strong alcoholic taste poor little guy. Why do they have to make it have such a strong taste?

There should be flavor free. Make it taste like water. Or milk!
