Baby A has been sleeping 8-10 hours per night for the past 3-4 weeks. It has been awesome! Then last night she woke up 6 times. 4 times she put herself back to sleep and the other two times I had to feed her. It sucked. I really hope this isnt the beginning of a new habit.

That's the 4 month "mile stone" lol. They become a lot more aware of their surroundings at that age and are much more easily distracted, that results in less efficient milk consumption during the day therefore they want to catch up on that missed nutrition at night. You can try going into a quite room to feed the baby during the day, but if memory serves me right she still found things to get distracted by. All to say that it's normal, although frustrating.

Ugh...that's rough. It really stinks when you get used to a really good pattern, then something like this comes up. Hope she goes back to sleeping well soon!

L has been waking up a lot at night to nurse as well. Every 1.5-2 hours instead of sleeping for 6 hours at a time. He takes a quick nap during the day and pretty much doesn't eat all day either. He makes up for it all at night. It's not ideal but eh as long as he's sleeping and eating I'm good.

With my first, being the impressionable first time parents, we fell for the myth that it's because she needs more food and started her on cereal didn't do anything, she still woke up at night to eat.

It's normal for babies to experience some sleep regression at this age, usually between 3-5 months. It's usually caused by a change in their sleeping pattern, from long periods of deep sleep as a newborn, to alternating periods of light and deep sleep, like us adults! This is a shock for babies at first so they can wake up during these periods of light sleep and not really know what's going on! Don't worry it'll pass

Yes. It only lasted two nights. Then she went back to sleeping all night. Hopefully she continues!

I am glad that things have gone back to long stretches of sleep! Mine has never slept more than 5-6 hours at a time but the past 2 nights she has been up every 2 hours. It is rough.

Some nights when I'm really tired I have no recollection of feeding her lol, I just know I did feed her because I wake up with my boob hanging out (we co-sleep) and a burp rag over the other boob to catch the let down haha. One night I woke up because she was stirring, and I thought I was trying to give her a paci, but I was actually shoving the paci at my nipple lol. I need ot start going to bed earlier.

Every 2 hours is horrible.

When we were co-sleeping and she was eating every 2-3 hours I frequently woke up with her nursing and had no clue how she got there.

Anna has been waking up during the night again for the past few nights...I sure got used to her STTN! I knew this was coming at some point, though. It wouldn't matter so much, except that I have to be awake & alert all day.

Baby A has done it again for the last 4 nights. It has only been one feeding per night so its not that bad. But I sure would like her to go back to STTN.
