My son is four months old. He usually wakes up every two hours at night. I put him in his cot at about 10pm each night and when he wakes after that he sleeps with me in my bed. I find he often half wakes up and seems to settle again easier if he is patted back to sleep without being picked up if he is in my bed. but when he is in his cot he seems to wake up completly before i can get to him and takes ages to resttle and when this happens so often during the night it can be very tiring, with no-one getting much sleep. I feel it is safe but dont want baby to get in to much habit of not being in his cot.
Do other people have this issue and what are your ideas?
