I put my son down in his bed every night. But he always wakes up at the same time and won't stay asleep unless I put him in my bed. I haven't slept in months! Help!

Nursing to sleep is 100% normal. Exhausting, but doesn't last forever. ♥

I have tried swaddling. He loved it when he was a few weeks old but now that hes older he hates it!

Have you tried swaddling? I have also found with my little one that on cold nights I need to dress her a bit warmer and she sleeps better.

He falls asleep around 7 or 8. Usually he wakes up around 9 but he's so tired I can usually get him back down. He wakes up again around 11 or 12 and that's when it's impossible to get him back down.

And yes he always wants to nurse back to sleep. I've tried using a pacifier to see if it'll help him sleep longer but it doesn't lol

It's very normal for a 4 month old to wake in the night and it's very normal for him to want to sleep w/ you.

What time is he going to sleep? What time is he waking up at night? Does he want to nurse or have a bottle to go back to sleep?

Personally speaking... my son slept ON me every night for the first 5 months of his life. It was the only way we both got some sleep. lol
