11 months old night wakings.Help!!
« on: November 12, 2018, 12:38:47 pm »
Hello,
I have a 11 month old baby boy.When he wa about 4.5 month, I gave him sleep training based on Tracy method.This way, I was able to change his sleep routine, and his daytime sleep improved.
But we couldn't have the same success in his night-time sleep.
unfortuanately, he developed a depencey on breast feeding after a long vacation we had, during which his bed, and his sleep routined changed drastically. And I had to resort to pacifying him by breastfeeding.
At the moment, he wakes up every 2 hours at night. We have tried many things,including the Ferber method. But with no success. everything goes back to what it was before after 3 days.
Our daily Routine:

06:30 awake-BF
E 08:00 breakfast
S 10:00 (1.10-1,5 hour nap)

E 11:0 BF
E 13:00 lunch
S 15:00 (1 hour nap-in the stroller)

E 16:00 BF
E 17:30 Dinner
S 19:30 BF

As for the night sleep, I breast feef him and put him in to bed while he is still awake. He sometimes falls asleep by gentle patting und sussshing.
He started walking at 10 months old, he is an active baby during the day.He also has cow milk alerrgy-just including here as additional info for whatever it's worth.
As I said, currently, he wakes up every 2 hours at night.I'm sure it is not because of hunger.He is dependent on my breast, uses as a pacifier.
I can't pacify him by cuddling him since I'm very tired to stand most of the time.
What can we do? I anxiously wait for your ideas.
Thank you

Where does he sleep? In his own bed/cot? Where?

You might need to rebuild trust if you have used the ferber method. BW is against leaving babies to cry alone as it breaks the bond of trust that you will come when they need you.

He sleeps his own bed.we sleep another room.I had used Ferber Method very long time ago.I dont think this situtaion is about trust.I breastfeed whenever he wants.and he slepps with BF in his first sleep.He goes to sleep by himself in the evening.

Do you think it could be discomfort? Have you cut all dairy out of your diet and baby's?
It could also be that LO is needing to start the 2-1 transition with naps.  We have a FAQ I can link on that.
Or it could just be that he needs to touch base with you at night when he wakes in a room in his own.
