5 month old sleep issue
« on: December 27, 2017, 15:05:49 pm »
Hello all;
My LO has always been an energetic alert baby, he was born with  forceps and was real gassy at 0-3 months, for lack of better knowledge and at friends recommendation he spent most his time in a baby career.
At three months I put him on easy and it took work to teach him how to sleep-shhh pat, PU/PD ext.
The closer he got to 4 months the more our schedule was lost. For a while he was doing great, giving me 7-8 hour starches at night. But at 4 months it all went.
So we moved to 4/4 graduly...
For a week about-that worked 😂
Now-his daytime naps are sort-one hour- 1:30 hours, his catnap is a struggle! And he wakes real frequently at night.
Sometimes even staying awake for an hour and a half/two hours.

Yesterday’s schedule;
6:50 awake
7:00 eat
9;15 sleep woke up 10:15. Shhh pat-stayed up
11:00 eat
12:40 sleep
2:05 awake
3:00 eat
5:00 showing signed of tiered so I put in bed-won’t sleep-sshhhh pat. PU/PD
Feel asleep 5:45
6:30 awake
7:00 feed
7:20 bath
7:40 bed.

Woke up at 10, 11(feed) 12, 2, 4(feed) stayed up till 5:45 and woke up at 6:30

I am alone in the USA, my husband works from 7am and comes home 8-10 P.M. I am breastfeeding and the only one that takes care of LO and honestly I’m running out of straight. HELP!! 🙏🏻

I've posted on your thread in General Sleep - perhaps we can lock this thread and keep all the advice in one place.
