Rock-a-bye-baby

At 5 months old, Hariz is still having sleeping problem (well I call it problem) because he kept waking up at night for every 2-3 hours! There was only 1 time that I thought the problem was solved when he slept from 8pm to 6pm and wake up once to nurse. Well that was last week. I did enjoy the 5 nights though. Tapi starting last Sunday, he started waking up every 2-3 hours again. *sigh*


I kept wondering to myself what exactly the problem here. Tak cukup makan ke? Too hot? Too cold? Bad dreams? I've been reading on the net that there are a few possibilities of why this happened and how to baby sleep guide etc. I did try few ways but didn't work like giving him hot bath, massage, lullaby, reading to him, nursing. None of them work. Every day I kept experimenting ways to get him to sleep. It's easy make him sleep but KEEPING him to sleep is hard.

Is this normal? They said he will sleep better when he reached 6 months old. Is this true? Dulu orang cakap after 4 months he will sleep better but he's 5 months now. Sama je. Huhuhu... Any tips from mommies out there? Does this happened to every one?

babe, if u dah try semua, nothing wrong with Hariz. just give him his own space..apa yg dia nak buat.. i know u might penat-lazy-ngantok nak bangun malam but this is the things yg kita kena lalui.. every babies are different kan?

6 months is average age for baby to sleep thru the nite. not the same for all babies, sweetie ^___^

my fren's baby cried every night for 1 whole year. lagi parah huuu huuu

hi ida...just to share with u, my daughter sampai skrg dah nak masuk 2 thn pun keep waking us up at 3.00 to 4.00am for nenen...so nothing to worry dear...

Everyone's unique and so is every baby.

so hari tu jer la? hehe. Dia seronok duduk rumah baru kot.

sheraz lately pun bangun 2 to 3 times at night after a very predictable routine established since he was 2 months old.

Hard to tell, theory is theory. First we suspect he's hungry. dah bagi makan masih bangun jugak, now we suspect it's teething. next i dunno where to blame. hehe

salam sukma!
welcome to my humble blog! ;)

poor nia. how old is she? how is she now? dah baik ke?

i pon rasa mcm hariz ni tak selesa. tapi dia takde la batuk2 pon malam2. cuma he sweats a lot! pasang aicond kuat kang, hidung tersumbat plak.

so now terpaksa angkat dia tido next to me sambil nyusu coz kalau dia nyusu he will settle :)

i hope nia will get well soon.!

my baby dah setahun.. masih lagi bangun2.. utk nurse in the middle of the nite.

Some breastfeed baby mmg gitu kots. Tapi kalau dia buat mejik tidur sepanjang malam mmg i amaze laa.. ahahaha.. kadang-kadang terjaga dan tgk dia tidur lagi.. rasa lega dan tidur semula.. :)

My Iqbal pun ada baju jalur2 biru itu. Sangat comel kan?

::Ida:: said...

haha.. you're right! i pon kadang2 terjaga malam, tengok dia tengah tido, then tido balik. sometimes i jadik mcm lupa yg i dak letak dia dalam katil dia balik :P

hehehe.. i pon suka pakai kan dia dat baju. senang :P
