I have a almost 5 month old little girl. Each night she is asleep by 8:30. We do bath bottle book. And fall fast asleep. But onec 1:30 and 5:00AM rolls around she doesn't want to eat. She wakes up screaming.And will continue to scream unless I put a bottle in her mouth. She just wants to paci on her bottle. Doesn't want to eat or anything. And won't take a paci. What do I do?!

I'm not worried about her sleeping through the night at all. She will when she's ready/. What i'm worried about is her wanting her bottle becoming a habit. Especially when her two bottom teeth come full in. As of now they are almost through.

She's 4/5 months old... She's NORMAL. None of my kids slept consistently through the night (10-12 hours) under a year... and one of them didn't do it til 2 years old. They sleep through the night w/out eating when they are ready to do so.... sometimes w/ a little gentle 'prodding', but that shouldn't happen under a year. Your daughter gets a 5 hour chunk of sleep... at her age that is, technically, considered sleeping through the night.

They aren't babies forever... I promise. ♥

Let her have the bottle (w/ her breast milk or formula in it) and get back to sleep.
