My baby daughter Ashleigh is 25 weeks (5.5 months).From 5 weeks she slept through from 10pm until 6am. Then she turned 12 weeks and it all changed.
She was always nursed to sleep then I would put her in her bassonette and she was gone for the night until the above mentioned age.
She now doesn't sleep in her cot at all. As soon as she is put down she wakes and cries. Its almost like she has parking sensors on her bum!
I cuddle her and try over and over to put her down but it's always the same. In the end i cuddle her in my bed just to get sleep. Sometimes she wakes and wants nursing, but more for comfort rather than hunger, Some night I spend all night laid next to her with my boob hanging out like a dummy with a heartbeat!
She is weaned and has 3 meals per day and lots of breast feeds. She refuses to take a bottle though :(
She all so doesn't really nap in the day much unless i go out in the car. Or with the pram.
She just doesn't seem able to go into that deep sleep like she used too!
I have 4 other kids and now I've had enough. Time to sort this out!
