8 week sleep regression?! Help!
« on: January 26, 2019, 14:49:03 pm »
Is the 8 week "sleep regression" a real thing?  If so how long does it general last and how to deal with it? My baby just turned 8 weeks and has gone from sleeping 7-1 AM feed and then until 6ish to waking almost every hour all night long fussing and needing pacifier put back in.  Her daytime naps have also gotten worse, all except for the first one.

Have you tried feeding, it's most likely to be a growth spurt and looking for more food.
If you are BF the growth spurts occur to develop the supply of milk to meet changes on needs by the baby. At 8weeks it's normal to need 2-4 feeds overnight, so I'd look at if feeding helps settle her.
