Just wondering if anyone else's little ones are still waking up all night. Christian still wakes up every 3 hours to eat. He had a few nights of going longer and then was back to every 3 hours again. I think maybe I need to feed him more during the day?

My first child did that or worse till she was 14 months old. She was up every hour when she started to need real food, but giving her that only extended her sleep an hour or two. It was horrible! Some babies just seem to be night owls.

DD2 was inconsistent with her sleep till around months. 6-7 months, I seem to remember her finally giving me a full nights sleep on a daily basis.

DD3 is still waking up at least once, and I don't expect a real full night's sleep for another month or two.

Could he be teething maybe? Or maybe hungry?

We are last night was pretty bad. Good nights it's only one wake up. Usual nights it's 2. Last night was 3. Ugh. I'm wondering if it's teeth too since he's been drooling out the wazoo and gnawing on his hand non stop. He's pleasant otherwise though.

I thought formula babies were supposed to sleep better?

I think teething it making it much much much worse.

I was just reading online how babies at 4+ months SHOULD be able to go 8 hours at night without a feeding. That's not saying they won't wake up, but they aren't necessarily hungry. I realized this is the case with Logan. He will wake himself up and had trouble getting back to sleep. At first I thought he was hungry, but he kept falling asleep halfway through his bottle. I discovered he wasn't hungry at all, just wasn't able to soothe himself back to sleep.

Now that I figured that out, he will sleep anywhere from 6-9 hours without waking up. Granted, to get him to stay asleep I usually have to put him in my bed, but...

For the most part Brady sleeps through the night. We've had a couple of off nights in the last month (sleep regression or teeth??). But his sleeping habits during the day drive me nuts. I held him while he napped today & he slept for an hour. It was amazing. He only sleeps for 20 min at the most most days. I've been keeping track of his eating habits because I know the doctor is going to ask & they've been so weird I'm just going to tell him the total he averages a day. But he's been drinking 2oz every hour or 2 like a newborn. Then he'll pop in with a 4-8oz here or there. It's weird. I don't know how it gets him through the night but it normally does. The day? I'm right there with you.

OMG Don't even get me started on this. Christian used to sleep 7-9 hours a night 2 months until 4 months. 4 months came and OMG the kid never sleeps. 3 times awake in one night would be a DREAMMMM!! Our night goes like this, get him in bed by 10:30 usually sometimes 11 (after rocking him for almost an hour ) then until about 12 he will wake every 15 mins or so, and i have to go give him his paci, and touch his hand until he drifts off again. By 1-2 he will finally sleep decent ( I think, either that or I'm so used to getting up I don't notice.) 4-5 comes and he wakes SCREAMING, every night, never fails, so i feed him, cuddle him, rock him, and he will drift off and wake every 10-15 mins until 6 when he passes out solid. Then 7 rolls around and its time to get up with the older kids. This has been going on for the past month and only seems to be getting worse rather then better. I'm at a loss, and ready to pull all my hair out. Its almost 12 here now and he hasn't slept longer then 20 mins at a time since he went down 9:30

Oh and I'd GLADLY co-sleeps, did it with my other 2 best kind. BUT this baby will NOT sleep in a bed with me, in fact he screams as if I'm hurting him when I lay him next to me or on my chest. He fell asleep in my arms today and I just let him sleep, I started drifting off sitting up, so I tried to lay down a little with him on me, he woke up crying within 2 mins. JUST doesn't want mommy to sleep?!?! What else could it be?!?!

We are still up a lot too. Cosleeping and nursing laying down are my best friends.

My first didn't sleep longer than 2-3 hours until 16 months as well.

I wish Christian would take a pacifier to settle himself back down. He does nurse and seems very hungry when he wakes up. He is in the pack and play next to me...maybe it is uncomfortable too.

He is teething - has 2 teeth already!

Man I miss my sleep!!

Sophia is up 2x a night now. It used to be one. For some reason I don't really mind though. She is still a better sleeper that I am. I have horrible sleep patterns and always will I guess.

Carter was sleeping better before he hit 4 month. Then the 4 month sleep regression hit and he sleeps like crap. Most nights it's 4 hours then every 2 after that. He's getting better at self soothing and being laid down awake. So that's a step in the right direction.

Carter is eating his fists ALL the time, he sucks on them so loudly too. Thinking this little man is teething and it might be the reason for wake ups.... we shall see.

Atlas goes to bed at about 9:00 then wakes up at about 1 and 4 to eat. He was sleeping throughout the night until he was about 2.5 months though.

We're all pretty solidly in 4-month sleep regression territory, so this is normal and transient, right?

...right? right???
