Night wakings after months not for hunger
« on: November 12, 2014, 04:10:16 am »
My 5 month old has been sleeping through the night for months now. Recently, after a bout of the flu, we got a few random wakings mainly food and discomfort related. Now she is totally well but we are still getting very random night wakings.
 This is our EASY of the last 2 days
10/11
7.30 - WU + E
10.20 - 12 -- nap 1 (held through jolts at 40 - 40 & 30 mins)
12- E
3- 4.30 -- nap 2 (slept in crib for 30 mins -- couldn't resettle. Held in arms for rest of nap)
4.30 - E
5.30 - E (did not want) bath - feed( very distracted & disinterested - had to bounce/ dance)
6.15 - PD (mistake as she was so UT)
Nursed to sleep
7 - sleep (we do not nurse to sleep usually. She has been so OT lately that I was trying for an early BT and I just upset her so much that nothing else would calm her down)
9.30 - WU -- tried to resettle with pat/shush/ PU/PD -- not happening -- offered 1 oz - slept off
10.30 - DF (4&1/2 oz)
no night wakings

11/7
7 - WU + E
9.45 - 11.20 - nap 1 (held through jolts)
11.30 - E x2
2.20 - 2.50 - nap 2 (would not go back to sleep even when held)
3.30 - E (HUNGRY)
5.10 - 5.40 - CN
6 - feed, bath, feed
7 - sleep
10.30 - DF (3& 1/2 oz)
All of this is normal till...
1am - WU crying -- not hungry -- took half an hour to get her back down
1.30 am - sleep
1.45 - WU crying but resettled herself after a LONG time
3 am - WU crying- could not resettle -- ate 3 1/2 oz
6.30 - WU for the day crying

This makes no sense to me as we are out of the 4 month wonder week and in the sunny period right now. She is also NOT rolling or teething or anything! Since she went to sleep fine and stayed asleep, I know that she was just the right amount of tired. So what do wakings in the first part of the night mean? She has woken up only a handful of times since 2 months old and then only to eat.

Please tell me what you think!

I see you already have an active thread with the same issues so I am going to lock this thread. We try and keep all advice in one place :-*.
