It was only taking around 2 min to settle, it`s now taking around 15-45!!

Hi
I have an almost 6 month old, I have been doing the settling technique and it was going really well. But we have had a huge change in the last 3 days. He takes a bit to settle and screams in the meantime.. it was only taking around 2min now taking around 15 somtimes 45!! Nothing has changed as in our routine... Also he is waking in the night about 4 times and i just turn him over onto his belly (thats the only way he sleeps) and he goes back to sleep but will wake an hr later etc etc.
His been very unsettled and tired during the day and very grumpy if i put him down he winges if i let him just winge it will turn into a scream?

Any idea what i can do?

Answer: Hi Jasmine, Sometimes a baby will regress to try you out they liked it the old way! Keep up the settling and use the techniques as soon as baby shows tired signs. He seems to be looking for your presence during the night you may be rushing to him rather than giving him a chance to resettle himself Cheers, Maree
