    Hi Emma,

    The last few days have been rough, last night he woke up every 2 hours and fed for almost 10 minutes each time. He’s not screaming like he was so that’s a bit if progress but he’s still crying a lot and not self settling.

    He might be teething as hes often chewing on his fingers or whatever is in front of him but no teeth about to come through by the looks of it.

    When putting him down I have to hold him to sleep fully and wait 5 minutes before I can transfer him otherwise he’s crying again, I can’t even get to the settling pyramid. Even his first nap he’s taking a while to go to sleep and some naps he’s just skipping or only doing 15 minutes. Not really sure what else I can do to help him settle better or get back to settling himself 😕
