My son was born premature at 29 weeks. His actual age now is 8 and a half months old, but his corrected age is 6 months. He is perfectly healthy and overall is an incredibly smiley, happy baby! But for the last few weeks he has been having sleep problems. He will wake up a lot in the night- sometimes every half an hour. It's so draining for me :( I breast feed so I offer the breast but most of the time he isn't hungry. He just seems uncomfortable and just wants to be rocked or bounced to sleep. We got into a bad habit of rocking/bouncing him to sleep because when he was younger he had very bad colic and that was the only thing that worked. I've tried giving him a bottle of formula in the evening, adding rice cereal to the bottle, giving him a warm bath before bed, letting him cry it out a bit but not for long as he screams too loud it will wake up the rest of my family... Tried teething remedies incase he's teething.. Nothing seems to work.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?
I'd love some help please x
