I thought i would ask you ladies because usually when i ask this question i get 'it's probably time you weaned her' or 'she needs formula!' They really aren't the answers i'm looking for lol!
My daughter is a pretty good sleeper. She has 1 or 2 decent day sleeps and about 11 hours at night.. The only problem is her sleeps are broken. She wakes up at least 3 times a night for breastfeeds and then happily goes back to sleep in her cot or my bed. She slept through the night once at 4 months and that's about it. She's gotten a lot better, 3 times a night seemed like nothing! But now it's really affecting me! I can't concentrate on my school work and i often fall asleep on the couch during the day with no one watching my daughter.
I feel like i've tried everything! I've tried extra food before bed, bottles of warm milk before bed and during the night, cups or bottles of water, comfort toys, blankets, my clothes, and letting her cry it out! :'(
Nothing works. We have to share a room which doesn't help!
I'm sure it's just comfort feeds! She eats like a machine during the day lol!
She CAN settle herself but in the middle of the night she just won't!
Does anyone else have this problem? WHAT DO I DO?! Any advice or your stories would be greatly appreciated! xxxx
