7 Month Old and Too Many NWs
« on: August 31, 2018, 17:16:05 pm »
Hello! I have been MIA for a while, avid BW followers with the first three kids. Baby #4 came this past January and he was a dream and slept well (though never through the night) until the 4month sleep regression. It seems like nothing we do gets him to sleep well at night. I have recorded his schedule the past few days  and will share below.

He's a laid back baby, but VERY busy. He gets distracted easily while nursing (3 siblings to distract him and for him to want to keep up with), so I often have to go into another room to get him to sort of focus. His room is very dark with white noise playing. No pacifier or lovie, and he settles himself well to sleep (except in the middle of the night). Routine to bed is to change diaper and put on sleep sack, read story, sing song in the dark, and then I will hold him vertical over my shoulder to calm and lay in crib. He usually rolls over and falls back to sleep.

Tuesday:
5:45am - Wake up, let him play in his crib until 6 but he didn't resettle.
6am - Nurse
7:45 am - Breakfast
9am-11am - Nap
11:05 - Nurse (hardly ate)
12pm - Lunch
1:15 - Nurse (one full side)
1:45-3:45 Nap
4pm - Nurse
4:30pm - dinner
6pm - Nurse
6:15 - Bedtime (he was so tired
10:45pm - NW (DH tried to resettle, but wouldn't so I nursed him)
2am - NW (Nursed again)

Wednesday: (This day was major off, I felt like i was playing catch up all day)
5:45am - Woke up
6:15am - Nurse
7am - Breakfast
8:25-9:45 Nap
10am - Nurse
11:30 - Lunch
12:50pm - 2:50 pm Nap
3:15pm - Nurse
4:30 - Dinner
6pm  - bed
9:15pm - NW
10:45 - NW
12:45 - NW
4:45 am - NW

Thursday:
4:45 am - Wake up, nurse, awake for an hour.
6am-7am: Sleep
8am - Breakfast
9:40: Nurse
9:45 - 11 - Nap
11:10 - Nurse
12 - Lunch
1:50 - Nurse
2pm - 3:55 pm - Nap
4:50pm - Dinner
6:30pm - Nurse
7pm - Bed
10:45 pm - (Dh resettle, but it took a while)

Help please! Thank you!

Hi, I know this post is a few months old but I was wondering how things are now? Iímin the same boat at the moment, I could have almost written that myself! Did things get better for you at night? Did you manage to drop some NF? I hope things got better for you☺️
