Hello,



My son Blake is 14 weeks....he sleeps about 10 hours a night. But throughout the 10 hours he will wake up and cry...I go in and give him his passy and he will fall right back asleep. Any ideas on how to get him away from waking up at night for the passy? I tried to give him a little bit of cereal with his last feeding. That didn't seem to help much though.

my daughter does the same thing, and i do the same thing just pop the pacifier back in her mouth. but this is only since coming home after being in the hospital with RSV. She had been sleeping 8-10 hours every night with no problems at all, but not she will go to bed around 8 and wake up and cry around 3-4 in the morning but i give her the pacifier back and shes good for another 3 hours....im not sure what to do about it either

Don't give him cereal...it really doesn't do much and isn't healthy. I got my son to sleep through the night but simply letting him fuss, or cry. I feed him about midnight and he sleeps until 8am. He started doing this at 2 months and is now 3 1/2 months. Letting him soothe himself to sleep is the best way to get him not to wake. ANd if he does, he will learn to self soothe. good luck!

I have the same problem with my little one, she will be 4 months on March 11. I think they are looking for comfort.

Quoting Alyson:

Trich,

When you put him to bed does he have a pacifier, or do you think I should try to put Blake to bed w/o the passy?

Thanks!



Hi Alyson



he goes down for all his sleeps without the use of the passy, as in the reading that i did it said that a common cause of them waking up and crying is because they have lost their passy and need it to soothe themselves back to sleep, he is able to do this now without it and it only took a day to get him used to not having it.



he did a bit of loud pitch screaming to start with but after just amin or two he realised and feel asleep on his own.



although i have noticed over the last couple of days he has been sucking on his hand but i think this is mainly because he has a tooth coming through.



hope this helps

I had the same problem too.  My son goes to sleep with his pacifier, and then he'd wake up a couple of times at night and I'd go in and put it in his mouth again.  I did it as a way to figure out if he was hungry.  I figured if he kept crying then I'd feed him, but mostly he'd just go back to sleep.  But that only really lasted a few weeks, he doesn't do that anymore, he still wakes up, but he'll go back to sleep without me going in there.  I would agree it is just a stage they go through.  Hang in there!

My baby still gets up every 2-2.5 hours throughout the night, so I would consider yourself lucky if your baby only wakes once in 10 hours.

Hi



i had the same problem with my son to start with, i used to go in when he cried but then one night i was so tired i left him for 10mins before moving and by the time i went in there he was asleep again, after doing some reading i found out that they have 40min and 80min sleep cycles. and its just them stiring between the cycles. after reading this i just listen to Logan in the monitor and most of the time he is asleep with in a couple of mins with no crying. it has really saved me as now he sleeps from 7pm till 7am without me having to get up to him. and he doesnt have a passifier at all. i hope this helps?

sorry, ihave the same problem. my son sleeps from 9pm-8 or 9 am. he will want to be fed around 6 am. however he does get up throught the night with the same problem. i think this is just a stage they go through. with me oldest we had the same problem, but as he got older and wasnt swaddled anymore he put the pacifier back in his own mouth. hopefully this will be someting that passes!
