5 month old wakes up crying and I think its gas
« on: April 07, 2014, 17:59:31 pm »
My 5 month old wakes up quite frequently at night and her legs are pulled up to her tummy, could this be gas? I try bicycling her legs, giving her gripe water/gas drops but nothing works and I finally give up and feed her and she is fine...Is she hungry or does she have tummy ache? I can never tell! I've thoroughly spoiled her habit cos she still wakes up 3 times for a feed at night. Bed time is between 7-8. First wake up is at 10:30-11, feed 3-4oz, goes back to sleep immediately after feed, next wake up is 1:30-2, feed and back to sleep quickly, 5:00am wake up again, feed and then up for the day at 7:30.

I know I need to stop her night feedings but HOW???

Hi there, if she's eating and going back to sleep, then I would think its genuine hunger :-\. Could you post your daytime routine as well...E? A? S?
