5months old wakes at night every 2 hours
« on: August 18, 2014, 12:40:43 pm »
Hello all,
My LO is almost 5 months old, been on 4 hours EASY for 20+ days but i am having problems at night, he wakes up 2 hours after feeding, at 1pm and at 5 am. He jerks his arms and legs, comes out of the swaddle and cries sometimes hysterically and takes hours to settle him, sometimes takes until the next feed. He is breastfed exclusively and I still feed him at 3 am since he demands it.
Here is my sample day:
6 wakes (i try to settle him back)
7 E
7:20A
8:20 S
10 wakes up A
11 E
11:15. A
12:30 S
13:30 wakes ( sometimes i manage longer, sometimes only 45 min)
13:45 A
15 E
15:15 A
17 cat nap in baby carrier for 45 min
19 E
20 S
23 dreamfeed
1 wakes crying
3 night feed ( he demands it )
5 wakes crying
