Hi Crazy_Crazy,

This might be hard at first but you need to let him go back by himself, does he have a dummy? My little man used to do the same thing and I used a dummy to resettle him in his bed, you can also use the controlled crying method (this is hard at first) speak to your clinic nurse about this, but he will soon learn to resettle himself.

hope this helps.. Let me know how you go.

We have a 4 week old bub, we have been doing the controlled crying for about 2 weeks now, sometime it works other times it doesn't, when he doesn't settle between feeds we give him a cuddle/bath and offer him some water.

This happens to him around 2 feeds everyday, it's very hard to hear him cry, but if you can handle the controlled crying it does work.

My son will sleep by himself for the first block at night then wakes feeds and wants to get into bed with me. Any other opinions on co-sleeping as advice from midwives etc is conflicting. It works for us as we both get decent sleep. I have let him sleep in with me since the hospital and he is now 6 weeks old.
