Hey i have a 11month old daughter Isabelle who will b awake at 3.30 4am and will want a bottle feed and will not settle bk down in her bed.. the only way i can get her bk to sleep is trying to rock her to sleep but takes alot of time and cos im so exhausted from during the day i just pick her up and put her in with me.. is there any other way i can make it so she can cut out on the bottle feeds at 3.30 4am in the morning and get her to sleep through the whole night? cos i am very worried this will happen for years to come.. n i realli dont want that as she will be 12 months next month! She will sleep till 8am and ill give her breakfast and then about 9 9.30 if she is still a bit wingery ill try her with some morning tea.. but that is another thing she wont eat that much she will eat in stages and she gets abit annoyed because she wants to be able to feed herself! i have throught about keeping her awake during the day for as long as i can but then i have noticed she will end up over tired and be more unsettled! so when she starts to get tired i just put her straight into her bed.. n then she will sleep for a good half an hour to an hour then ill give her a bath and give her some afternoon tea and she will go bk down for a couple of hours and then she will b awake around 6ish for dinner and then stay up till about 10.30 11pm and then will b up at 3.30am again and starts all over again? has anyone got any ideas?! please help if u can :)

hey thanks hun! :) ill give that ago thanks.. is the night time milk like cows milk or formula i havent never actually heard of it before? Isabelle was started on cows milk until she ended up with Gastro and the doctor recommened that i took her off the the cows milk,, and start her back on when the gastro had ended,, so this week i should be trying her back on with the cows milk :) :) Your lil girl Nicole-Leigh is absoutley gorgeous :) :) yeah i tried givin her a bath with the lavendar johnson, but i found she was allergic to wat was in cos she suffers with examea, so i have to use somethin that says for sensitvie skin.. :( but i will deff try that night time milk.. :):) Thanku Steph
