Hi all,

I transitioned my almost 4 month old to the 4hr EASY routine from the 3hr routine. Since the transition, he has been getting up many more times at nights (12:30am, 2am, 4am, 5am), and struggling going back to sleep (offering paci, rocking, etc). He is not really hungry (maybe snacks on an oz if I try), so I don't think that is the reason why he wakes up. I was not sure if it was the new routine causing the night awakings and if I should try to switch back to 3/3.5hr routine. Or maybe it is a growth spurt?

He does well during the day - we can mostly follow the routine. Naps ok (45 min to 2 hrs). He takes 5 oz or so at each feeding. We give him expressed milk in a bottle and supplement with formula when needed.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi hun, would you mind posting your easy for us like this..

Wu 7
E 7.10
S 9- etc etc including the NW's and any feeds overnight.

Thanks, hopefully then we can see the full picture. There is the dreaded 4mo sleep regression that hits around now too, so it might be that. However, probably better to see if anything stands out in the routine to make sure x
