I'm having real problems with Amelia waking in the night - it goes OK until 2am then everything goes pearshaped! She has a bottle at 7pm and then at 11/12pm (dream feed and also change bum). I would then hope she'd sleep til at least 3am and then til 6 or 7am which would suit me as that would mean only one feed in the night. Unfortunately not! Last night she woke at 2am and had a really good feed and bum change but then woke at 3am, 4am, 5am, 6am (each time I settled her with her dummy). When she wakes she doesn't actually cry but does a lot of stretching her arms and legs, rubbing her face and grunting (sometimes in her sleep) like she's doing something that requires a lot of effort - this wakes us up and we need to quieten her so we can go back to sleep. I don't know what to do - does anyone have any suggestions?

Littleted - Connor is exactly the same in the small hours of the morning. He appears to be a sleep by there's alot of arm and legs thrashing, face rubbing and grunting. It looks exhausting but he can do it for hours. The problem is it keeps us awake and no matter how much I try I cannot settle him.
I have asked the doc and health visitor because he sounds like he really struggling at times but they don't seem concerned so I have kind of accepted thats what he does.
OH and I take it turn about to sleep with him because of all the grunting and groaning otherwise noone would be getting any sleep. He might be going into his own room sooner than I thought!

Annie used to do all the grunting and leg thrashing thing! She's settled down now though. I try to give her a last feed around 9-11...depending when she wakes for it and then she usually sleeps through till 5-7. I'm feeling much more human like as well but I keep having really emotional days when I can't control my emotions and i shed a few tears! It's just sometimes hard to stay on top of house work and it gets to me!!! But i'm sure my hormones will sort themselves out soon.
No-one every checked my stitches so i hope they were ok!
And I'm no where near back to my pre-pregnancy body ( Got another 2 stone to lose and ALOT of toning! I don't know if i'm going to be able to do it!! It used to be so easy to get to the gym before Annie! Now I really struggle.
I'm still loving being a Mum though. Annie is perfect )

I wish Connor was anywhere near sleeping through - the other night was a one off - he's back to eating every 2.5/3 hours.
Had him weighed this week and he's 11lb 7oz. I asked about his feeding as he only takes from 2-4oz max at a time. She did say that's not alot but he's putting on weight as he should be so not too worried. He won't take more so I guess he will eat more often - dont know what to do other than just go with the flow?
Sorry litteted and Blondie maybe the other girls can advise.

Littleted - i never had one in this pregnancy (not sure why) so cant comment on that
Blondie - my 1st born had bad cradle cap, they say u can use olive oil but u can buy special cradle cap shampoo and that worked a treat )
Hope everyone is good xxx
