My daughter who is now 11mths old is still waking up 2-6 times during the night. She eats well during the day (4 solid meals and breastfeeds before sleep time and a breastfeed when she wakes up from each sleep). I've tried everything to help her sleep better but nothing seems to work. i think she may suffer from nightmares as she wakes up pretty startled and upset and the only thing that will help her back to sleep is a breastfeed and cuddle. Is there anything else that I can do to help her stay asleep for longer or is it just something that will improve in her own time as she gets older? I plan on breastfeeding her till 18 mths. Any suggestions?
