Babies: 0 - 3 Months

help ! 4 week old baby suddenly not sleeping at night

my 4 week old little girl was sleeping well at night, waking up around 2-3 times with 2-3 hours between. she’s EBF, doing light cluster feeding 1-2 hours before bed. suddenly at 4 weeks of age she is no longer sleeping at night, waking up every hour crying and fussing. 

i feel like things were going good. now i’m sitting her running on no sleep wondering what i’m doing wrong.

    There could be various reasons. My pediatrician told me that babies generally become fussier at one month. My baby (now 6 weeks old) started drinking more per feed at 4 weeks which helped with sleep.
  • Oh, I completely understand! It might be a growth spurt or developmental leap causing the change in sleep pattern. I faced something similar with my little one , and guess what worked? Babies Magic Tea from Secrets of Tea! it is pure product - easy to digest and clean ingredients. It helped soothe my baby and improve her sleep. Maybe it could be a game-changer for you too!

  • My 4 week old is going through this too. It is the opposite of fun!
  • 6 weeks is on average a growth spurt period. Have you tried to feed more at night? Hopefully it doesn't last that long. I'm going through it now with my 3 week old and I remember the fussiness of my son when he was 5/6weeks. 
  • Oh sweetheart, don't beat yourself up! First off, you're not doing anything wrong. Babies are just unpredictable little beings. It sounds like she hit a growth spurt, which can mess with sleep patterns. Try keeping things calm and cozy before bedtime—maybe a warm bath or a gentle lullaby. Baby sleep tea an hour before bedtime works wonders too. Also, make sure she's getting a good feed before tucking her in. It's tough, I know, but hang in there. This phase will pass, and soon you'll be back to those sweet, longer stretches of sleep. Mama, you got this!
