Mum of 1

My son is four weeks old and his sleep pattern is getting worse each night. We give him his last feed at 10pm and then every four hours. He settles well until his feed at 2am and the after his 2am feed I put him back to sleep and he stirs right up until 6am. I’ve tried winding him, comforting him but he seems to be unsettled and pulls his legs up to his chest. Please help!

Hi! So many congratulations on the birth of your little one. I have a couple of links that I will hope will reassure you in relation to your little ones sleep.

The first is a blog I have written and the second is a video where the doctor talks about exactly why you may be hearing the grunting groaning etc.
