My LO is 4months 3weeks old and from the word go was a brilliant little sleeper.  I've exclusively BF him and he slept a bit on me/in bed with my partner and I from birth until 2months.  We then moved house and he outgrew his little moses basket (he quite seems to like space!) so we put him in his cot.  He would sleep there from 10 until 6/7am from the age of 2months.  I would then get him and feed him in bed with us and we would stay there for another couple of hours dozing.


I really liked our special time in the morning and so after doing some research etc I decided to bring him into bed with us all the time.  For the first couple of nights he slept right through, but now he wakes up 5 or 6 times a night to feed, and wont settle without a feed.  I'm beginning to really struggle with this tiredness/broken night.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Is it worth the close bond that co-sleeping brings, or would it be worth trying him back in his cot? 


Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.  Thank you
