My beautiful five month old daughter has created a habbit that I hope I can break! During the day I BF her every 3.5 - 4 hours with no problems. At night, however, she wakes and wants to feed every TWO hours! She sleeps between feeds at night, but for some reason snaps wide awake at around 4am and is so happy and ready for play. If I try to put her to bed or encourage her to go back to sleep she starts screaming a loud protest cry simply because she isn't tired. So how do I get my precious daughter to sleep longer at night (she used to only wake at 3am for a quick snack feed then off to sleep until 6:30am) and wake up for a play after 6am?
