Anyone still have babies waking up at night?

LO is 5mo. and still waking up 3, 4, or 5 times a night. I don't know what to do. I really don't want to do CIO but I am so afraid that this will last forever. I just wanted to see if anyone else is going through the same thing...

    LO is 5 1/2 months and wakes up twice at night still. And I thought I had it bad!

    LO stopped waking up around 2.5m but now at almost 5m she is waking at least two times to eat. This has been going on for the last week and a half.

    At five months, my LO still wakes at least twice a night to eat. After the second night feeding she usually stays awake about an hour, which is difficult because it falls between 3-4 AM. This is actually a huge improvement from where we were, though. From birth up until about two weeks ago, she was waking every 1-2 hours!

    There is no silver bullet, but I can say I got a lot of helpful tips from "The No-Cry Sleep Solution."

    Thanks everyone. I feel so alone sometimes. It's good to know that he is going through a normal phase.

    Are you kidding? You are not alone at all. DS wakes a few times a night. Some times he will go back to sleep after eating or being held. Other times he is up for hours. It's tiring. I miss sleep. I knew babies didn't sleep through the night, but I couldn't prepare for this.

    I'm right there with everyone. I used to get 6 hour stretches but for the past few weeks I'm lucky to get 3. She used to sleep so well in her crib and now I'm lucky to get 1.5 hours in there. We gave been bed sharing at least a few hours every night because I work and need at least some sleep. My big issue now is getting her to bed. She falls asleep between 8 and 9 sleeps an hour at most and is up until what used to be midnight but this past few days has been 2 AM. I can't keep her up in the evening and can't get her back down at a reasonable time. I don't know what to do at this point.

    My first thought was,"WTF kind of title is this?".. Because yes, most LOs are still waking at night. My DD has been going through an up every 2 hrs phase for 2-3wks. Last week, she was up every hour one night. My mom suggested I let her CIO, but I'm not interested in doing that. I figure she won't be like this forever. I mean, most kindergarteners don't wake up 4x/night, right? ;)

    Same boat here. She used to do 6,7 hours at night. Now it's multiple times per night. Our pedi said not to do cry it out til 6 months but to certainly let her fuss for 10-15 mins if we know she's clean, fed and burped. We've started that had had better luck with getting her down but now she just needs to stay asleep for longer!

    That's what I keep saying to myself. Eventually he has to sleep more. We bed share and have a side car crib which makes all the waking up easier on me. I just hate all the pressure of everyone who tells me how their babies slept through the night at 2-3 months. Allissonn5 said it right. I was feeling like people thought I was a bad mom because my son won't sleep.

    My LO wakes up too and I am gonna CIO her at around 6,5 months. I did it with my DS. It was hard but best thing I did. Now I know I have around 1,5 months of sleepless night so that makes it bearable.

    Im still up multiple times at night as well. I just started getting a 5 hour stretch when LO first goes down but its been hit and miss with the rest of the night. Ive started moving up his bedtime and he's now asleep before 8. My next step is to try to reduce nighttime feedings to one feeding. I am finding he is not eating much during the day but filling up at night so im going to try to break that habit. Its nice to know a lot of others are still going through this as well.

    My DD is FF and has been sleeping 7:30-4:30a then 5-7:30a this past week after waking 1-3x a night since birth. After her bottom two teeth came in last weekend, she started sttn ( for now until more teeth come in ). Hang in there!

    DD still is waking about 2-5 times a night but eats her last bottle at 8pm and then her morning bottle is at 7 or whenever she wakes up. At night she doesn't wake to eat I think she just has trouble putting herself to sleep... Hopefully with time she will learn to do it...
  • Options
    We have never had a STTN yet & 2-3 times is a great night for us. This too shall pass! Hunker down and ride it out.

    LO is waking up 2-3 times a night. Some nights he wants to eat and sometimes he will go right back to sleep. He has also decided some nights that he wants to stay up after eating at 2 or 3 am. No Sir!

    I really can't figure him out. One night he will sleep all night 8 pm-4am and I get excited and then the next night: up three times! I just have to roll with it. What is consistent through all of this however is his desire to never fall asleep, he fights going to bed pretty much every night. I can't really get too mad because he gets it from me. :-/

    Yes. We are still up a bunch at night. You are not alone at all.

    Still waking up every hour here. Ever since the 4 month wakeful, it's just gone down hill. Oh well, I guess if we didn't want to lose any sleep, we shouldn't have had babies right? ;)

    @curlingrocks sadly, no :( I'm thinking of trying to put her down awake and just letting her fuss it out while I sit with her. Then again, I can never picture my daughter allowing that lol. I'm hoping she will grow out of this and hopefully sooner rather than later! I forget what sleep is o_O

    Is gas maybe waking her up? I started my LO on probiotic drops and I find it has helped a little. He still wakes up a lot some nights but at least I get an initial stretch of at least around 4 hours now, sometimes a little longer.

    I lose track of how many times she wakes. She is ebf. I just keep her in bed with us and it's much easier.

    LO will not go to bed until sometime between 10-12am no matter what I do and he is up for the day around 7. In that time he wakes up nearly ever hour. We started using the magic sleepsuit a few days ago and last night I finally got a couple of 2 hour stretches.

    Of course.. and like PP, I've stopped counting the number of times she wakes up and the times at which it happens.  To be honest, I don't mind when she just wakes up to eat.  We bedshare and she has become adept at just latching on without my assistance.  I don't even fully wake up to feed her anymore. 

    The new-ish activity though is rousing during the night to chat with me, at which point LO and I have to go hang out in the living room until she wears herself out (anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours) so that H can get some sleep.  I love hanging out with this kid, but I could stop with the MOTN play sessions.

    LO will be 6 months next week. The amount of wake ups varies every couple of weeks. Some weeks he wakes up 3-5 times a night other weeks it's just 2-3 times to eat. Most of the time he eats 2 times a night and the other wake ups he just wants to suck back to sleep. We've started letting him fuss for up to 10 minutes and that has helped him put himself back to sleep more often. I always go in to feed him if he wakes up and it's been at least 4 hours since his last feeding.

    Yes.  Many if not most of us are going through the same thing.  DD came out of the 4 month wakeful period and went right into teething, so we are lucky to get a night with fewer than 3 wakings. 


    This is us exactly.  We have been bedsharing since this stuff began because he also outgrew the RNP and refuses the PNP and his crib.  He wakes up, cries a little, has two sips and is back to sleep within 10 minutes. We are working on naps in the crib and I am reading the No Cry Sleep Solution.  We have weaned the swaddle and got him sleeping on a flat surface so progress is being made.  Hang in there!

    My twins are 5 1/2 months old. My daughter sleeps from about 10p-7am. My son will sleep from about 10p to between 2:30-4am, have a bottle and then go back down until 7am. I tried putting them to bed earlier around 8-8:30 but that caused my daughter to have at least 1 wake up and my son 2-3 wake ups for feeds. What time do you put you LO down for the night? Is your LO EBF or formula? Is your LO having solids yet?

    Usually it's just once a night (usually around 3) and then he wakes up at 6. He has STTN a few times, and a few times gotten up twice.  DS1 STTN consistently at 6 months, so we have anotherweeks before I start hoping.

    DS will be 6 months Wednesday. He is BF. he goes to bed drowsy but awake in his crib at 7:45 each night. He is asleep by 8. We are using the MMSS, white noise giraffe and tranquil turtle. He wakes at least once to eat around 12. Then again between 4-5. We get up at 5 but he will sleep on the way to dcp. On the weekends he'll sleep to 7:30. 
  • Options
    DS will be 6 months (holy crap!) in just over a week and he normally only wakes up once per night. He'll sleep from 8:30-4ish and then back to sleep until 7 or 8. He's teething though so he's been waking up two or three times a night lately.
