    My son will make 5 months old this week. Before the 4 month regression hit he was usually waking 1-2 times a night. He would usually do a 4-6 hour stretch then every three hours after he would wake to eat. We slept train him a week after the regressiong hit because we didn’t know what else to do. He can put himself to sleep on his own without a pacifier. Even after sleep training he never slept through the night. He now wakes up every 2 hours and the most he will give us for that first stretch is 3 hours now. We tried spoon feeding him rice cereal about a week ago because we though that would help his sleep but it didn’t. We really think he is waking every two hours to eat because he is hungry since he knows how to put himself to sleep. Any thoughts? Do you really think it’s hunger? If so, do we try slowly cutting out night feedings?

      Hi Katelyn,
      Thank you for visiting our sleep little village! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re struggling with night wakings. It is normal for a 5 month-old to still wake to eat 2-3 times a night to eat, especially if you’re nursing. You might like our chart on night feedings by age here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/sleep-training/baby-night-feedings-age-chart/
      I hope this will help, but please let us know if we can help further, and good luck!

    My son is turning 9 months soon. He wakes every 45 mins to hour n half and will only fall asleep if nursed every night. He will cry hysterically if I rock him or pat him to sleep. He also sleeps less than an hour each naps and takes 2-3 naps. He hates to be left alone in a room. I haven’t gotten a good sleep for over 12 months now. Please help!

    • @Sheril I’m so sorry to hear you’re having a hard time with your 9 month old. 🙁 You’re not alone and we’d be happy to help! It sounds like you have several sleep challenges you’re dealing with including frequent night waking, short naps, and crying when it’s time to sleep. It would be great to talk with you in more detail about your sleep goals and help you come up with a plan to help your son sleep better. You will BOTH be happier, I’m sure! If you’re interested, talking with a sleep consultant would give you the steps you need to have a rested night.

    @ Sandya – absolutely! This this is the beauty of using our personalized services vs. trying to do it on your own – because you will work one-on-one with a consultant, who can take your unique schedule into account, you will get a customized plan of action that will work within the context of your existing schedule. I would definitely encourage you to pursue this, Sandya!! Could be just the solution you need 🙂

    You can see personalized consulting info here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-toddler-sleep-consulting-services/ Best of luck to you! 🙂

    @ danche – oh no! You must be TIRED. 🙁 Have you thought about getting personalized help? I’d say that’s definitely the way to go, given that you have two children who need sleep help. This is likely more than you can tackle on your own.

    Personalized service info is here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-toddler-sleep-consulting-services/ Feel free to comment again, if you have further questions. Best of luck to you, danche! Hang in there!! 🙂

    @ Jules Ellingson — I can’t say for sure which plan Gerry purchased, but oh no on your plan not working as well as you’d hoped! Did you contact your sleep consultant about that? You can also e-mail contact (at) babysleepsite (dot) com and air your concerns there. Our customer service team is fantastic and will do what needs to be done to make it right. 🙂

    @ Jane — oh, you must be so tired!!! Rest assured that this is a problem that can be fixed. By 10 months, a baby no longer needs to nurse around the clock like this. With the help of a consultant, you definitely can wean your little one away from the feeding associations and help her sleep better. If you’re ready to start, you can see our complete list of consultation packages here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/baby-toddler-sleep-consulting-services/

    Hope this helps, Jane!
