Hi @CassieY - It's rare for a four month old to be teething. Many parents mistake drooling and putting hands in the mouth (both developmentally appropriate things for them to be doing!) and fussiness at this age as teething. I would talk to your pediatrician about it. Teeth should appear within a few days and it should only be a couple of days that you need to give pain relief. There might be something else going on that you could talk to your pediatrician about.
Like you, I don't like to give Tylenol for really long periods of time. And if it was teeth, they should have popped out by now. It sounds like the baby is sleeping great thought which is fantastic! Great job!
Hi @mollybellasteele - Check out our blog here - Daylight Savings – Nanit’s Baby Sleep Guide To Spring Forward! You are doing an AMAZING job! And I'm sure the transition will be smooth!
Hi @ShoghigDan - I'd make sure she's eating enough during the day! She might be genuinely hungry. The time change will work in your favor though; she should wake a bit later for you!
Hi @Ark - Check out our blog here for how to transition this weekend - Daylight Savings – Nanit’s Baby Sleep Guide To Spring Forward.
Hi @LMT28 - My preference is always to do the adjustment on Saturday. It should only take a couple of days and your baby should be waking later in the morning!
Hi @NaliniB - It sounds like she is not tired enough going to sleep at the beginning of the night. Its really normal to see that at this age, when she likely still needs two naps but is getting close to transitioning to one nap and she needs a longer time to build up enough sleep pressure to be tired for the night. I would try to have around 4-5 hours between her last nap and bedtime.
Hi @I_Olivero - They might be napping too late or too long. The first thing I'd experiment with would be cutting back the nap. Daylight savings will be good for you! They should start to wake a bit later in the mornings!
my baby is 3 months old and she still has her bath around 6.00/6.30 pm feeding at 6.30/7 and immediatly after bedtime. So she sleeps from 7.30pm to 2am or 4am feeding again and sleeps until 6/7 am.
should I move the bath and feeeding later to avoid the feeding in the middle of the night? Or is it too early? What do you reccomend?
Also I’m taking the swaddle away to her but she struggle with her hands and so she wakes up 😰 do you reccomend to transition or to just take it out??
My son just turned 3months. He sleeps 7 to 8 hrs straight at night using the fever method at the age of 8 weeks. He falls asleep by himself almost every time but for the last couple of days I put him in the bassinet fully awake as always and he doesnt fall sleep. Any Suggestions or reason?
Dr Natalie, my 4mo wakes up 4 times a night and I give him his dummy and hold his belly but he struggles to go back to sleep but is moaning and tired. If he wakes after 3am I give him a bottle but he also wakes up around 5am and again needs comforting. What can I do to cut out these comfort wakings? He is also never hungry at 9am when I try to feed him so should I stop the night feeding? Thanks !
