I remember this well!
Things I would do: Waking the babe to do a feeding around 11-11:30pm, don’t turn on lights when the baby wakes at night (except a nightlight for diaper changes) and minimal eye contact and talking at night. Also, i tried to put baby down for naps when relaxed but not totally asleep so i could do the same at night!
I think it’s important to remember that it’s really normal for babies to wake at night for many months (even though it sucks!)
Good luck, Mama!!
