sleep regression

adorable asleep baby

My baby has been a really bad sleeper since basically the day she was born , cat naps all day 10 minutes up to 45 mins at a time but when she hit 8 weeks old she started getting herself into a better routine not perfect but was sleep up to 2 hours at once which is a lot for her. Now she is 4 and half months old and has gone back to the way she used to be cat napping all the time maximum she will sleep at once is 45 minutes even in the night. Is this normal someone please helpppp she is driving me crazy I am badly sleep deprived.

I thought she would of grown out of this now but she just hasn’t and as I am a single mum I am just sooooo exhausted. Someone please tell me it gets better.

    I know it is so hard having a baby that doesnt sleep and its physically and mentally draining as my little boy was like that but just try and think of it as seasons and it is just a phrase. I tried every trick under the sun for my little boy but nothing worked it was just time and he did grow out of it. You have got this!

    My Little boy has just turned 10months and has always been a good sleeper until the last month i feel like I have a newborn again he is up every 2 to 3 hours and I dont know why there is no reason for it well not that I can tell anyway. Has this happened to anyone else round about 10months?

    We had this with our first child. It drove us to breaking point. She’s now 6 years old and has only been sleeping through for the last 12-18 months. It becomes a pattern / habit to wake up and one they need to work out themselves. We now have a 10 month old who is going Through sleep regression and I’m really trying as much as I can to comfort then leave because I don’t want to get in the same situation as before.
    I have a different opinion now to my first due to sleep deprivation, which is as long as they aren’t distressed and reassured by you going in and soothing them but not taking them out of the cot because other wise they expect it. That’s just my opinion and don’t endorse it by any means. You have to do that’s right for you. We got through 5 years of no sleep with our first, it was extremely hard, but we lived. Granted she gets up at 6 every morning but that’s only a little price to pay x
