As the phrase goes....just after a bit of advice. From coming home LO has always slept we'll and I was having to wake her in the night for feeds! Lucky I know! At about 8 weeks we started trying self soothing which went great until about 13 weeks when she started teething. We're now at 17 weeks and struggling to get her to sleep much at all or for any length of time day and night! This last week has seen a maximum of 3 hours in the night and she's only sleeping about 10-11 hours altogether each day which obviously isn't enough! She had cold as well as teething and I got into the bad habit of letting her settle on me again so now I'm a bit stuck! My recent thinking is that she is overtired and overstimulated but I'm not a fan of the CIO method at her age...I doñt want her to associate bedtime with being upset just not sure how to go about a routine now and what sort of time is appropriate for bath, boob, bed etc! Sorry for the long post but she needs her sleep and I feel bad that I've slipped back into settling her on me. Thanks for reading
