@babyla, sorry I'm no help. I'm wondering the same thing with my bub.
Totally stuffed! Bub has spent nearly 2 weeks (with only a couple of good nights) waking every 1.5-2.5hrs at night. Can't work out what's wrong. He's nearly 3months-has anyone had the 4month sleep regression happen early? Not sure what else it could be.

Also if bub is going say 3.5 hours in the day and bub is waking more often than every 3.5 hours, I would try and settle without a feed.
Sorry I'm not sure that actually helps.

@babyla I just wanted to pop in and say with my last 2 babies I had the same conundrum and honestly never got an answer for me which was better out of the 2 scenarios. One week I'd do the dream feed every night and then they'd wake again for a feed and be unsettled. So the next week I'd leave them to wake and still they'd wake twice and with the 2nd wake up be unsettled.
I'm honestly not sure what the best choice is. Just posting to say I've been in your exact position and never worked it out!

Helping your child sleep better
Totally forgot about the newborn grunting!!! DS sounded like an elephant in the early hours of the morning, he's been so quiet for so long now I totally forgot how loud he used to be until I read your post!

Thanks everyone. Just spoke to DH and we've decided that we'll let DD decide. For now anyway. Last night worked quite well. She had her immunisations today so not banking on anything either way.
@hollygolightly - the grunting is intense! I'm hoping that when that passes I will at least sleep a bit better

What is with the grunting?! I always assumed it was trapped wind but it sounds like a lot of babies do it and 3am seems to be the start time. My ds2 is now 9 weeks and he's so bad! Annoyingly we've been using a dummy to help with his colic but he's now quite reliant on it and when he starts squirming and grunting it keeps falling out which means I spend most of the night putting it back in. Arghh!!
When ds1 was 6 months and we did some sleep training I bought a soft toy rabbit with Velcro paws where you can attach 4 dummies. Was brilliant! Can't wait until this one is old enough to use it!

My DS was the same early on. I thought he was uncomfortable but my midwife told me if he's not distressed, leave him be. It was such a shock as DD was never noisy. Is it a boy thing? First signs of snoring!? 😉
