w...t...f.. is wrong with my kid?

I think it may be the dreaded 4 month wakeful....

Maddox has been STTN for the past 3 weeks.  For the past two nights, and tonight, he has slept for the most 2 hours (without waking up) but mostly waking at least some every 45-ish minutes.  The only way I can get him to sleep is in bed with me to hold him.     We did some Ferber at the beginning to get him to sleep, which he did fabulously for.  We're trying it for nighttime wakings, but he's just not buying it.  Every base has been covered...fed, warm, dry, even oragel.  

Is this the 4 month?  He's so freaking cranky during the day, and wont nap good (an hour twice a day tops, he was napping 2 hours in the morning, an hour in after noon).  I can't sleep with him in the bed with me anymore, and he doesn't sleep good either, but the past 2 nights its the only way I can get him to go to sleep.

    From my reading, the thing about Ferber is the consistency.  If you know he has the ability to self soothe, then he just needs the time to figure out the sleep association.

    Sounds exactly like what Aditya went through at 4 months. It was bad but the worst part only lasted about 2 weeks. He had fewer and fewer bad nights after that. Good luck!

    Im glad to hear it does end!!! Now if I could teach him to turn his head to the side when he flops on his stomach to sleep, we'd be in business!
