Hi i'm a first time mum in desperate need of some help.
My baby is about 6 weeks old and we have recently introduced the pacifier to him to help him sleep at night. Before the pacifier, we patted/ rocked him to sleep, and he would sleep for 4 hours, then 3 hour stretches. After the pacifier, although we could get him to sleep faster, his sleep seems to be now 1 hour before he wakes up crying for his pacifier! Did i break my baby sleep habits with the pacifier or is something else cause the shorter sleep stretches? I have no problem with waking up to reinsert the pacifier in his mouth a few times a night based on his previous sleep pattern, but waking up every hour is really draining.
