I am in shock. DS is on his third serving of soup. That never ever happens...

Wondering where my chopping board and measuring jug have been put. They magically vanished when my parents were visiting and have yet to reappear.

Tired. We may be on top of his reflux but DS continues to be a cr@p sleeper. Haven't had one night since birth where he has slept well after midnight. And by well I mean for more than one hour at a time, and even when he is sleeping it's not sound sleep. It's noisy and unsettled. Add frequent feeds and attempts to resettle and it makes for a very long night. No improvement in sight at 7 weeks. I am so exhausted from spending my days trying to settle him, then up all night. I just want some sleeeeeeeep.

@sunnygirl79 so many hugs. All mine were dreadful sleepers from newborn during that midnight to morning period. My one that showed promise wound up with silent reflux and by the time the meds worked she was so unsettled we had to start all over again.
I know it's not SIDS recommended but the only thing that worked for me was them sleeping on their tummies from around 12 weeks. I slept on the floor of their rooms while they did to check on them (I was up so much anyway) but it seemed to help the reflux and them to have longer. stretches of sleep.
DD3 then went into a hip brace and tummy sleeping came to an end and she was back to being extremely unsettled again.
I don't miss those days. My kids are now finally pretty good sleepers yet I still wake a lot. So much fun.

I do wonder about the tummy thing. Or at least sleeping on his side. Half the time he is in bed with me anyway so I am already failing on the sids recommendations. I want him to find his thumb to suck as I know this helped DS1 a lot I just can't remember what age he did that. Dummy just doesn't have the same success. I know it will get easier, doesn't help me now though 😫.
Sigh. He has a stuffy nose tonight. He isn't sick, it's only apparent when flat on his back. But yah another thing to add to the list of things that p!ss him off.

That's how I figured it out with mine. They would only sleep on my chest anyway so I figured they liked being on their tummies. It certainly became easier once they could have their arms unswaddled so I felt ok with them on their tummies. They also all bad freakishly strong necks from birth so could rise onto their arms and turn their heads if they wanted to switch from side to side.

And I agree I don't find it very comforting knowing it will get better either. Intellectually yes but I struggle with sleep deprivation and often felt resentful. Not a nice feeling but I did.

I might try the sleeping on tummy thing during day (using a grobag) while I can sit beside him the whole time just to see. Any time I normally place him on tummy he just tries to crawl (!!).
