How do I get my baby to sleep through the night. At 7weeks for abt 1 month she slept through it was bliss! But then she started waking & hasnt stopped since. She usually wakes up 2-3 times a night. I try to comfort her for a few mins, sometimes this works other times I have to nurse her back to sleep. I really didnt see it as a problem before as I believe if a baby cries there must be a reason, some need that I must fulfill. I always worry that maybe her tummy hurts, or she's teething or had a bad dream ..something. However I'm returning to work in a few months & I'm concerned that I'll be this spacey sleep deprived employee! Crying it out is not an option as her crib is in our room so my husband would never get any sleep. She has 3 solid meals a day & nurses about 3 times daily. Her pre-bedtime nursing session is always so short, she nurses for a few mins then pulls off. So in many ways that's y i've been nursing her during the night as i feel she might be genuinely be hungry. I dont know what to do. Will these night time waking all end when she turns 1, or do I need to do something now.
