Last night I bathed him at 7. And at night I used jholi for him to sleep... He got up after every 2-2. 5 hours for feed but slept immediately after taking feed... It worked. Today I am planning to bathe him at 9... Let's see.. Thanks everyone for inputs.. I also tried playing white noise... But his voice while crying is so loud that it superimposed the white noise :D

Hi Purva, don't worry my lo had the exact same behavior... its natural... babies don't understand day and night now. This will automatically change after 3-4 months of birth the sleeping cycle will change... but they still will keep waking up in the night but that will be far better than the current situation.

do one thing just let him sleep whole morning make sure he should not sleep from 7pm to 9pm that two hours at least try to make him awake by playing or any other thing then feed him and if possible give bath then use jola to make him sleep so that he will sleep. Off the light for time being. don't make any noise

this is the case with almost all babies. gradually this cycle will change atleast after baby will turn 3 or 4months. meantime you can try for oil massage at evening also that's help to get sleep. i have 8month old baby girl and I used to do this to make her sleep. it's help me not 100% but yes 50%.

Me and my wife have been experiencing it for quite a time now but we kept on experimenting to sort it out. there are couple of things which can work for u as it did for us. 1. try to keep d baby awake in the evening till around 9 pm by playing with her. 2. give d baby a nice massage or a nice warm bath to relax her n put to sleep. 3. dim the light of the room and cut the noise i. e. talk very softly like whisper. 4. when u put the baby on the bed, either put a soft pillow on her or a travel neck pillow on the tummy to make baby feel cuddled. it works and lastly enjoy all the moments with the baby no matter she is awake or asleep cz ul get ur sleep back but not these moments. best wishes..

I Knw this hamper our sleep Bt just look at ur baby n u will realize everythng worth it... :-)

Hi Purva Nanivadekar Initially the baby would change his her sleep cycle till it gets set to a routine. My daughter would cry a lot and refuse to go to sleep so evenings we would take her on a drive that would put her to sleep. I startes taking her out when she was 2 mnths old since that alone helped her to stop crying. Also i would breast feed her to sleep you can try that . Good luck

Hi purva, Unfortunately we cannot do much for this. As babies change their sleep cycle on their own. My daughter herself changed hers on her 4th month. So be patient.

Purva Nanivadekar in that case u could give a sip of water and put him back to sleep. his feeding habit at night might take some time to resolve but he will get used to it. u could request ur hubby to serve him water.

Thank you Shikha Batra . But his feeding is after 2. 5 hours and at night also, if he wakes up at 1 am for feed he stays awake upto 5 and if he wakes up at 2 am he stays awake till 5... In the morning he sleeps immediately after taking feed by his own. But at night he just wont sleep

hi Purva Nanivadekar ! u need to break his sleep cycle by waking him up early and making him sleep early at night. this might take some time but if practiced regularly child would definitely settle down soon.. wake him up by max 7 am and with a 45 minutes to 1 hr nap at around 12. 30 in the afternoon, and serve him dinner by 7 pm so that he sleeps by 8. 30 pm max. make sure at night, the lights are dim, there are no distractions around.. u too could lie down by his side and narrate a story and he should sleep. u have to be really patient as this might take some time. hope this helps!
