5.5 month old suddenly night waking HELP!!!!
« on: September 24, 2006, 00:01:51 am »
Hello my LO is nearly 6 months for the past 4 nights she has been waking during the night and taking a long time to resettle.  she has been sleeping through (dreamfeed at 10pm ) till 7 am for at least a month and a half. but latley she is waking twice a night.  I dont think she is hungry as she doesnt even take a full bottle at 7am.  She starts with a mantra cry and sometimes can resettle herself but othertimes she gets worked up and we try pat and shh etc. We are starting to get really tired and we also have a 3 year old too. She is on a great routine 4 hr EASY to a tea during the day and was doing great at night until recently... any ideas... Help please!!

How old is your child?    nearly 6 months

What’s your LO like when waking at night? How long is he/she up?  4amish we try to resettle shh and pat etc or give bonjella (just got 2 new teeth)can take up to an hour to resettle
When you go to him/her is she fussing or crying? Or is it a mantra cry? only when ful on if mantra cry we leave her to resettle herself
What have you tried to settle?? pat and shh.... bonjella.... offering some water...
What do you do for A time and how long is it? 2 hrs in between sleeps includes feeds time undr playgym, running errands, in the walker or jolly jumper

Hi Katie  :)  I think that your DD is getting too much daytime sleep. I would limit the two naps to 1.5 hours each and see if that helps.
