Put him in his own room ph34r.gif He will let you know if he is hungry wink.gif


Babies can still sleep through the night whilst co-sleeping or sleeping in the parents room smile.gif

Seth co-slept from 0-6 weeks and then moved into his bassinet in our room from 7 weeks...He was sleeping from 7:30pm to 6:30am at 8 weeks.

Piper...I would wait 10mins to see if he is really hungry or just stirring. I would wait and see if he would settle himself, if he didnt resettle I would try to resettle him and if that didn't work within 5 mins (or he woke 20mins or so later) than I would give him a feed. Unless he is screaming of course then I would feed straight away.

Will reconsider the massage thing as well, thanks. I've only tried it once because he didn't seem to enjoy it and then slept really badly that night but I only ever did it once so I know I didn't give it a fair try!



My DS had dry skin, so when I "massaged" him, I was really just moisturising him all over. It wasn't a long fancy thing. Also, I think the lavender helps him sleep. If he can't settle during the day, a tiny dab of moisturiser on his cheeks seems to do the trick.

I did/would do the exact same thing. Young babies often still need feeding overnight, so I wouldn't try cutting out any feeds just yet. But if he only comfort sucks, then he may be using you as a dummy (DS did this).
