    We've tried Charlie with a couple of night routines with no joy of them seeming to work but Friday we started this one:

    Bath or top and tail at about 7.30-8pm

    Get dressed for bed and put in his gro bag

    Final feed (formula, I am breastfeeding but his we give him formula for his last feed as he settles better on it). We do this in the dark quiet bedroom.

    Then put him in his moses basket and he settles himself to sleep.

    Friday and Saturday night he slept for 7 hours and we were so pleased, I then breastfed him and he went back for another 3 and half hours to 4 so we thought we've found the routine for him.

    Only problem is the last 2 nights we've done exactly the same thing and he's only slept 4 to 5 hours and then I've breastfed him and he wakes up every 1 and a half hours to 2 hours! I am so so tired, I want to stick with this routine but am wondering whether we should give him either a formula when he wakes up or a bottle of expressed milk so I know what he's getting,he can't be getting enough from me if he is waking up after just an hour and a half! Just seems weird that it worked the first 2 nights!

    Any suggestions ??????
