Hi, I'm sure you have tried it, but i have a 10 week old baby. I have changed her 4 hrly feeds to 3hrly during the day and she is getting her 5 feeds a day and then i feed her an 1 1/2 to 2 hrs after her 5th bottle which is normally around 10pm, i give her a bath EVERY night just before her 6th bottle and give her a massage after her bath then at 10pm give her that 6th bottle which she drinks from anywhere from 40ml to 80 ml and she is sleeping 10 hrs. This could be just that i am very lucky im not sure, but all i can do is give u the tips that is helping me. Hopefully it helps u! Good Luck u poor thing!

I have a question for your question.Do any of your kids wake up screaming like they had a bad dream or anything like that.OK now the reason i asked that question is bc i have 4kids and my first are twins they are about to be 5 and my son Keith wich is the oldest twin by one min usta wake up everynight screaming off the top of his lungs and my husband and I would go runing in there and hed be standing up screaming and for about 30mins he wouldnt even know who we were or were he was so my husband and I got scared so we took him to the their doctors office and asked the doctor about it well come to find out my son was diagnosed with night terras its where the body goes to sleep,but the brain dosnt its all weird to me and he still does it,but now it has become like and everynow and then thing instead of everynight like it was.I had never heard of anything like that untill their doctor told me thats what it was and even gave me some documents on it,but they do out grow it so im hoping he does,but im not sure if this will help u out,but thought id share that lil info with u just insase you are going threw that too.
