7mth old 2hr wakes at night refusing paci, wants mummy paci
« on: April 02, 2017, 23:42:52 pm »
Ugh. On 4-5hrly feeds in day with 2 naps, yet wakes two hourly. Went to sleep independently with paci tonight. Woke 2hrs later, fed. When he woke 2hrs later, I'm trying to resettle with paci which he is refusing. Shh and pat makes cranky and with PUPD he stops crying the second I pull the covers back, and then of course screams when I don't pick him up. This has been going on for over an hour. I don't think there's pain, I honestly think he is being stubborn. What Do I do? It's been 1.5hrs. Ugh!

EASY

7 am Breastfeed followed by solids
10am SLEEP with paci
12pm wake and breastfeed foolwed by lunch
3pm nap 45mins
Feed when wakes
6.30 feed
7pm bed. Goes to sleep with paci and sometimes needs me to put a hand on him.

I don't give solids near bed time yet. I'm too scared they'll make our nights worse.  When he wakes 2hrly, some feeds are good long ones (better than his days ones. He fusses during his day time feeds. Perhaps reflux, perhaps distraction. This kid struggles to keep still no matter what!), some are short 'mummy is my paci' type feeds.

You could work on independent sleep without the paci if you are ready to wean it. Can he replug himself yet? Pick up put down isn't suitable for use with continuing props like the paci. It can be used to wean them but not alongside one. PU/PD and Paci Use. Why they don't mix.

I'd also consider adding in more breastfeeds in the day to try to move some of those calories from the night to the daytime. I'd probably offer again at 9am and 2pm based on your routine above. That might help you get a full nap in the afternoon as well. I wonder if he's short napping then due to hunger. Breastmilk still needs to be his main source of nutrition until 12mo so it's important not to let solid food replace breastfeeds yet.

.thanks for your reply. I increased feeds in the day to 3hrly again and he was a fan of this idea (previously he would've snacked, but he is taking full feeds every 3hrs pretty much).  The first day I did this, his first block of sleep at night was 5hrs. He hasn't done this since about 3mths old. He then woke 3hrly for the rest of the night.  Now we are back to waking 3hrly at night mostly, however sometimes 2hrly, and after 4am, sometimes 1.5hrly. When he wakes more than 3hrly, I try to resettle using other ways But it doesn't work. Even giving him to my husband to be rocked. He refuses his paci and just cries. Not a historical cry, just a frustrated one. Eventually 1.5hrs of doing this, I offer a feed because it's time and he goes to sleep. I really don't know what to do. I don't like offering s feed at the end, but it's time to. He's being stubborn and I don't know what to do. He can't replug his paci, but to be honest, even if he could, I don't think he would. He LOVES using the paci in the day to settle to sleep, but he refuses it at night. Depending on our day, if super tired he will fall asleep on the breast for nights, but other nights he will go to sleep independently, half the time without his paci.

Pretty crappy. Still 2hr wakes at night, 3 if lucky. Wont settle with paci, rocked, only fed with or without paracetamol .  Even during the day now, he just cries will only go to sleep in arms. He pushes paci away, Screams until picked up. Its just a mess.

This is still happening at 9mths. Sometimes, when he wakes at night, he replugs paci. On average still wakes 2-3hrly. I don't know what to do.

Does he have any health issues like reflux or intolerances that might be bothering him?

If not is consider weaning the pacid and getting him to sleep independently every time he goes doyen
