Any tips on getting baby to sleep longer stretches? I have a 12 week old and have friends with babies all born within two weeks of my baby boy, theyโ€™re all getting sleep from around 8pm to 4am now (only doing one night feed). My baby is sleeping from 8 and waking up at 11, 1, 4 and sometimes 6. Iโ€™m a walking zombie ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚ please help!

Hi, you must be exhausted. Those first couple of months of sleep deprivation are tough and so much harder when you know other mamas are getting more sleep!

I am afraid two out of thtee of my babies had similar sleep patterns to yours.

Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding? Is there a way your partner could do the 11pm feed? So, you could get a couple of hours more sleep before midnight? I did this with my first and it helped so much!

You could also message one of the Tinto sleep consultants. They may be able to give you some support too.

Thinking of you as I really feel your exhaustion! ๐Ÿ’•"
