    I just want to say, please dont beat yourself up about all the 'bad habits' you feel you have made. really babies are small for such a short time, and really there aren't too many adults who cant get to sleep without mums help. you have other people in the house, so that makes for a different dynamic. relax and go with the flow until the visitors leave, and then you will be able to sort out what works best for you and bub. try to think of this as just a short phase, and soon your toddler will be able to be quite, and bub will sort out his own routine. hugs, marie.

    Default 4 month baby will only sleep on me

    I went through this, I just fed her through it if she didn't settle with some cuddles. Upset, breast, sleep, bed, rinse, repeat. Yeah, it was exhausting. She normally sleeps around from 6 or 7 with either one or no feeds now (7 months).

    Wakes 5.30-6.30am. Normally 5.30! When it happens again I'm not sure if I will feed through it or not but just relax, it'll change again soon.

    Also, out of interest is your pram flat like a bassinette? Is baby waking screaming an hour after feeding? This was me when she was littler, could it possibly be reflux. She's on medicine now. We still did have the sleep regression thing. However only wanting to sleep upright (on you, carrier) was my bub for her early months. It was reflux and a dairy intolerance (properly diagnosed by a specialist).

    No it doesn't seem to be reflux as he doesn't get particularly upset after feeding and we went to see a paed when he was about 8 weeks for colic and he didn't think it was reflux either.
    He's just a cuddly baby I think and has just got used to using me as a sleep aid.
    Since my original post we have actually done some sleep training as my back just couldn't handle the co sleeping, and the constant feeding and screaming at night when he couldn't get to sleep was becoming exhausting. Things have improved greatly in that he can now self settle most of the time when he goes to bed at night with very little fuss but he still struggles to resettle when he wakes. I don't mind this though as we are now usually just giving him his dummy to settle him or I'll feed him if it's been more than 3 hours, but at least he's not relying on having to be picked up, fed, falling asleep on me etc. It's been hard and we still have a long way to go but I think he's sleeping better at night. We also have the 5-5.30am wake up though!! Ah the joys!
