@Ellie that’s too funny !! 🤣🤣 my 6 month old does the same thing!! And they can be so tired but as soon as u put them down, they wanna decide to fool around. Tossing and turning like crazy!!! Like omg!! And now mine has been doing better , but sometimes I can rock him and he’s knocked out and as soon as I put him down there he go tricking me into thinking he was asleep!! Like I try hard not to laugh bc u see him smiling there in the crib ! 😆 but sometimes it takes me few extra tries before I’m bout to throw in the towel and then he finally knocks out!! Let me tell u the patience that they test in us!!! Lmaooo
Yes my daughter is 20months and refuses to go to sleep at night and wakes up constantly through the night and then still wakes up early..she also doesn’t want to use any blankets
Any sleep regressions during six months?
Yes mine is 22 months almost 23 months. Fights it to go to sleep, when he wakes up early morning to go back to sleep takes forever and forever to nap! Doesn’t want to use blankets
My love is 8 months teething and in a sleep regression. He goes to bed for about 3 hours and then wakes up screaming around midnight and usually won't go back to sleep unless I bring him to our bed and then it can up to an hour before he calms down and falls asleep... its rough...
Going through it right now
We are going on week 7 of the 4 month sleep regression. Eats 1-3 times a night but wakes every hour and needs to be rocked back to sleep. We are 😴😴😴
15 month sleep regression waking up 2.5 hours earlier than usual and napping so much less around 1 hour...!? Is this a thing 🥱😩x
Hi, going through the 2 year sleep regression, into week 4-5 of it. Went to sleep by himself fine before, now refuses to nap in cot and likes a good old chat and for me to be in the room before he goes to sleep for bed. Anyone experienced this and come out of the other side? Last one lasted 8 weeks! Thank you
Pretty sure we've just entered it. LO is 16 weeks old. Usually only naps for around 20-30 minutes at a time and night wakings have randomly started up again. What fresh hell is this?!
I feel you!!! Mine is 15 weeks and is exactly the same. It’s hell isn’t it!!! She was sleeping sooooo well and now, she’s in bed at 7pm and awake at 9pm...come on! X
My daughter is 3 months old and for the past week or so, every time I lay her to bed she starts kicking like a madwoman. Even if I rock her to sleep she kind of twitches on me. It’s like she just figured out she can control her legs but now she can’t turn them off 😩 at this point my goal is to make sure she naps by any means necessary lol, or the nights are 10x harder. Help?!
My 6 week old does the same thing!! Even if she’s out cold when I lay her down, 5 mins later the thrashing starts!
My little one turned 12 weeks old on Saturday and is now sleeping only 1-2 hours at night and only 30 minutes a day 😳🥱😭 Is 12 weeks to early for a sleep regression?
My son is 4.5 years and for the past 2 months he wakes up between 10 and midnight crying. Not sure if it’s a bad dream or he’s too hot etc. need help.
Yes he gets them quite often. His dr said he will grown out of them I’m just wondering when???
Any suggestions for helping with a two year old sleep regression? He’s waking up 2 hours earlier than normal 😞
Hi, did this pass for you? Not getting the early wakings really but a nightmare to get to sleep at bedtime and cries out a few times at least in the night? Thanks
Going through Leap 7 xx

When can you start with sleep training? Since my boy was 2/3 weeks old weve managed to get him to know night and day, he’ll sleep at night 4 hours then wakes for his feed. But has started waking up at 5 and wont go down till 8-9 then its feed again then struggles to go down and stay asleep. Hel wake every half hour 🤷🏻♀️
A lot of pediatricians and methods suggest 4 months. Your baby could be going through a growth spurt. Anytime baby starts cluster feeding it’s possibly a growth spurt, and any sleep regression could even be a developmental leap.
Whats cluster feeding sorry? Im a new mum so not sure on everything ... my boy is 7 weeks on weds... so is too early to start something like this
Any tips for 19 month old regression? He’s fighting naps and bed time. Won’t take his bottle in his crib anymore like he used to. I do bring him in bed with me at night if he wakes up, but getting him to fall asleep is next to impossible! We’re going on week two! Help! :)
Yes!! I’ve found her and really like her approach to slee!
How long does the regression last?? We are on about week 4 xx
I’ve read 2-6 weeks! Hang in there!
It lasted for too long for me so I switched from breastfeeding to formula for my sanity plus I was ready to be done with breastfeeding 🤷🏻♀️. I didn’t want to be cranky towards my 3 yr old and husband so I made a choice that we all loved 😊
I’m going through 4month regression with little one, feels like we are back to being newborn. Last week she was sleeping through the night this week awake every hour 😬
My little one and I are separated from Dad right now because of his job and risk of Covid, and doing this by myself is rough! LO started her regression at 12 weeks (literally the day she started rolling, so swaddling is done sadly), waking every 2-3 hours, but the last week it's been every 40 minutes. She's 15 weeks now. I've also read it can take up to 6 weeks, so maybe 3 more of this?
How long did the regression end up taking? And did your babe just suddenly one night sleep, or was it more of a progression? Keeping my fingers crossed it changes up soon!
It’s a blur! Probably as I resembled a zombie due to little sleep. From memory it only last a few weeks maximum thankfully. She’s now 7 months and had a few restless nights waking but has been happy with a cuddle then settled back nicely. They are a shock to the system (our system 😂) the sleep regressions! Good luck x
My baby is teething at 4 months old, and has been sleeping poorly for the last few weeks. My husband and I have been taking turns waking up to comfort him back to sleep, but we’re struggling
My daughter of 4 mo old start a regressions a few nights ago and its so harddd for me! I would like to find some good methods for training any one can let me know any of those? Thanks!!
My daughter turned 5 mo today and has gotten into better habits the past few nights. We went through about 6 weeks of her refusing her crib or only sleeping 1.5-2 hours in there. She would only sleep on me or she would scream, and only upwards of 4 hours. It made my nights so difficult as I couldn't sleep deeply and would wake up if she shifted. The other night, she fell asleep on me and I left her on her blankie (she has great neck control and can easily flip to tummy, so I'm no longer worried about non-fluffy blankets) but put her in her crib. She rotated onto her side, pulled her blanket around her, and slept six hours straight. It's now been three nights of this and I'm soooo happy she's moving out of the regression.
Yes my daughter is 3 and it’s all my fault since she’s been sick I let her sleep w me. Now I totally regret it. I’m having such a hard time putting her back in her crib. 😭
Change it to toddler bed she might settle better? Xx
I was think in g of doing that
It’s probably time for sleep training. First try put the baby down for a nap the same time every day (the last nap should be done by 4pm) and keep all the meals same time every day. An hour before bed time try not to have tv on, or loud music (you can have some relaxing spa music on though) and the lights not very bright. And then choose one of the sleep training methods and go with it. We usedThe Ferber method with all 3 of our kids and by night 3 they were all sleep trained. They were happier too, it seemed like they were getting way more rest.
Works for 4 months? Where can I see the methods? Thanks!!!🥰
At what age?
My daughter is 21 months old she wakes up every couple hours I give her s boob change her diaper and put her back to bed but then I have a she's time going to bed my self so when I get up the next morning it's a little hard so coffee to the rescue
My 2 year old is going through this hardcore. Seems like he is up every 30 minutes or so. Been driving us crazy! We have been trying to put him back to bed every time but usually after the 4-5th time we have been giving up and bringing him to our bed. I know we are horrible, but getting up at 6am for work after being up with him all night is just too much and I am forever exhausted!
Thank you for saying that, I really appreciate that. I get a lot of flack from friends and family members about how I am going to ruin his sleep or his ability to self sooth. But I also feel like I know him better than anyone else and I can tell when he is testing limits versus when he is scared and needs his mom
You’re not horrible for providing snuggles for your 2 yr old when he needs it. Cosleeping when done safely can help kids physically reconnect to with parents after a long day of activities.
My 8 month old is up every couple of hours..... it’s maddening and exhausting. I’m told to just hang in there and snuggle them through it 🤷🏻♀️
I think ours is a mixture but the next to me crib has been a lifesaver as I can then just scoop him up. I keep everything I need for the night in my changing caddy nappies/wipes/muslin/teething gel/calpol and a toy
I cant tell if my 5 month girl is teething or just hates sleeping.😳😴😴😵
I’m in the same boat!!!
Same!! My son was sleeping thru the night from 2 months old. He turned 5 months about two weeks ago and started waking up several times a night again. It’s starting to get better but I definitely thought we were regressing!! Was very afraid of starting bad habits 😩
Our seven month old is fighting sleeping in his bassinet. He wants to be next to me in our bed. Its getting to be too hard. My arms are so sore come morning and I cant move at night.
We bought a bassinet but, haven't actually used it yet my guy is almost 5 mo
My 5 month started doing a long stretch at night relatively early. But then some where near the end of her 4th month and the beginning of her 5th month she woke up every two hours. I panicked and thought it was because of the birth control lowering my supply so would feed her for those night wakes. But then it continued and recently she got sick and of course that means frequent feedings. I’m just so ready to sleep for at least 4 hours straight. It’s definitely become habit forming for her and I am at the point of “Ugh fine, just go back to sleep with my breast!” for every hour/two hours she wakes up. But I know I need to get her back into a better sleep habit *sigh*. It’s hard though because when I’m half asleep I have no will power 🤷🏻♀️. But my plan for now (which I haven’t been great at) is to sleep feed her around 12 am and try to keep her asleep until 5/6 am. I know we should feed a child whenever they want but I need my sanity. If she can sleep through that 3 am feeding I would LOVE it.
Thanks, I fear the light at the end of the tunnel is further than I want it to be 😅.
Oh man, that is definitely rough. Your comment literally sounds like I could have written it when my daughter was that age 🤦🏽♀️ it definitely gets better!! Good luck! Sending happy thoughts your way ❤️
My babe is 8 almost 9 months now and is waking every two hrs at night again, breastfeeding to the rescue but it’s still challenging for an insomniac
Hello! Fellow insomniac here 😞 My little one is the same age and is waking up every couple hours too. I’m not breast feeding but sometimes a warm bottle doesn’t comfort her. When she does finally go back to sleep it takes me forever to fall asleep so by the time I do she’s usually up again smh 🤦🏻♀️
