Our 19 wk old is still not consistantly sleeping through the night - he'll have a few nights of sleeping through & then be back to his waking 2 or 3 times at night. When he wakes I will go in & give him back his pacifier & then leave - he'll fall back to sleep, but I'm still hoping this will taper off & he'll get into a more consistant sleeping routine.
We've tried dream feeding- he wakes every time & makes is harder to put him down again, his bedtime is between 7-8pm, we have a consistant bedtime routine including bath & story, we swaddle him - this works to help with falling alseep. I've tried keeping him up longer in the day, reducing his naps - no consistant benefit, tried increasing his formula to make sure he gets his max calorie intake during the day so he's not hungry at night - again no consistant benefit.
What are others experiencing, have you tried? Anyone else dealing with the same thing?
