General Sleep Issues / Re: Baby awake all night
« Last post by Katet on Yesterday at 03:39:52 »
Hugs it's hard when they don't sleep.

A few questions when are you feeding? Did you feed any times from 8pm to 4am?
Has your baby been sick or does he squirm a lot after feeding?
How does he sleep/behave in the day?
Whats a rough idea of any routine you have?

If you can answer those questions it will help in seeing if there is an obvious cause (not always one though)

Naps / A time after short nap?
« Last post by Hoofbeat on October 17, 2019, 13:25:39 pm »
My 4.5month old is going through the 4month sleep regression at the moment and it is mostly affecting her naps with some of them being short (35-45mins). Her usual A time is 1hr45mins (sometimes nearer 2hours), but when she has a short nap I'm not sure how much A time she needs before I should try and put her down for a nap again? She's a very content baby and doesn't give many tired cues, so I'm struggling to know how much A time she can manage after only a 30min nap?

She's exclusively BF and feeds about every 3.5-4hrs. She sleeps well overnight from 7pm-7am with only one, maybe two wake-ups for milk.

We've been using shush-pat with her from the very beginning, and although she isn't quite ready to put herself fully to sleep yet, she is very easy to get down to nap with limited patting and just sitting next to her.

Okay, so despite another rubbish night, he managed to stay awake for 1hr10 mins this morning before going down for his nap. He woke at 45 minute mark and I gave him his dummy. He went over again and is still sleeping.
Hoping for the best here!!
I think part of the night time problem is Im not putting him down to bed at the right time?
He seemed well rested yesterday and then around tea time he would not go down for a nap at all. I gave up trying to get him over to sleep by the stage that he had an awake time of over 1hr30. But not long after this he was cranky and wanted to sleep!
So should I just have persevered with that nap and then take that as the last nap of the day?
Because I gave up on that nap, and then the 30 minute nap he took then after that, he wouldn’t settle down to sleep at bedtime for ages.
I really think this is the big problem to do with his sleep. But just not sure how to nip it in the bud.
Thanks so much for your advice so far  :)

In life there are times you just can't respond physically, but if you are talking to her and being responsive then it's not CIO.
It's hard to hear them be so upset, but sometimes it happens and if you are able to respond supportivly the vast majority of the time then your doing fine.

OK, next time he short-naps, don't feed him on waking, but wait until it's been closer to 3 hours. Yes, you might end up feeding to sleep now & again, but if he's getting shorter smaller meals from nursing more frequently, that may be complicating things.

So say he wakes at 7AM and you feed straightaway, and then he naps from 8-8:45, don't feed at 8:45 but wait until closer to 10 (maybe 9:45 if he's only staying awake an hour and already showing sleepy signs). Then you know FOR SURE that if/when he wakes after 45 minutes or less again it cannot be hunger since he just ate. And if he sleeps on you while you catch a nap, so be it once or twice. :)

Around 35-40 minutes into naptime, sneak into his room and observe what happens when he stirs between sleep cycles. If he starts rooting for a missing pacifier (mine would spit it out when she stirred and then root for it and ultimately wake crying), try to get it into his mouth before he even realizes you're there, see if he'll re-cycle back to sleep. I had to do that EVERY SINGLE NAPTIME for about 2-3 days before she started really sleeping thru, but after a week the short naps were a thing of the past.

Hi, I don't really know where to post this question hope it's somewhat right.
If I'm out with my Dd in the stroller and she cries and I don't pick her up, is that cio? My dd2 is 8 months and just like her sister she will sit in the stroller for a little while and then has enough and refuses to be in there anymore. Occasionally we use it and always bring a sling to carry her when she's had enough but I forgot it today and she's to heavy to carry all the way home (whilst driving the stroller) and she screamed the whole way (about 15min). I feel so bad but didn't know what to do. She could see me the whole time and I tried talking and singing but it didn't help. It doesn't work to pick her up to calm her and put her back it just makes it worse. I have the same question about the car. She can see and hear me but if she's crying and I don't do anything will it break the bond of trust? I feel like she's looking at me like "I need you why don't you pick me up?"
