    Default Night time fussiness

    Hi everyone... So I have a 9 week old bub. For the first part of the night so up until about 2:30am he will sleep ok. But from then on I can't get him to settle he spends hours squirming and fussing (no idea how much he's actually sleeping but is generally at this point he is in bed with me as otherwise I'd be constantly up and down to him). He will spend up until 6-7am like this then do a big poo and pass out! So it's obviously that poo that he's working out this happens guaranteed every morning. It's getting exhausting as I don't sleep for those hours while he's fussing (and can't during the day with a toddler). Anyone had any experience with this? Or any tips? Tia x

    Is he breastfed or formula fed? Because it sounds like he may be constipated??What are his poos like?

    Does he sleep ok in the day?

    He's fully breastfed and is fine during the day, poos are normal. So I really am baffled. 😓

    Maybe he's needing some more probiotics or something to help his tummy. If you take/eat probiotics, it will go through the milk. Sorry, just guessing, I hope it settles soon!

    Perhaps he's gassy after that night feed. Maybe try keeping him a little more elevated after that feed and burp him well. You can buy little wedges that go in the cot and keep them elevated. Alternatively, I used to sit up with my boy for an extra 30 minutes and night and let him sleep upright on my chest for a while. Good luck!

    The time of night he starts to get fussy suggests that he might be getting cold. He might be squirming around to try to get comfy and warm. Maybe add an extra blanket or two sometime after midnight. Good luck. X
