    My two week old baby go from awake to overtired, he is normally asleep at about 7 or 8 pm but for the past few days he is awake until 1 or 2 am. Both me and my boyfriend have tried feeding him, changing him, holding him, we go quite, turn off all the lights after we put him in his bed but nothing has worked. He is breastfeed. Is there anything more we can be doing to get him to sleep because he cried if we put him down to sleep.

      @Korienna – Thank you for reading and for sharing with us. Newborns can go from awake to overtired almost in a blink of an eye. Many of them can’t stay awake longer than 30-45 minutes at a time. Keeping your eye on the clock and on his sleepy cues can go a long way to helping catch your little guy just as he’s starting to get tired so you can put him down to sleep and actually get him to sleep. If you miss that window, it’s definitely harder to get him to sleep as he’ll be a bit overtired and wired. I hope this helps, Korienna!

    Hello,

    I am currently sleep training my 4.5 month old baby. I am on week 2 but she is extremely overtired. Her bedtime is a 5:30 pm. and she is waking up at 4:30am. My question is how can I break out of the over-tiredness cycle.

      Hi @May, thanks for writing to us. I’m sorry to hear your little one is overtired. Since I don’t know for sure where the overtiredness it coming from, it is difficult for me to give you a super clear answer, but I’ll happily send over some resources that may help. Here is a link to a sample schedule for a 4 month old’s sleep, so one thing to look for is how long her wake times are, as well as making sure she gets all the sleep she needs during the day in her naps: https://www.babysleepsite.com/schedules/4-month-old-schedule/
