My 2 and a half months old daughter has recently started to wake every 45 minutes approx. from her day sleep, have a little snack, play for about 30 minutes and then get tired. She also wants to be fed to sleep. She doesn't feed much when she wakes up and when she is ready to go to bed expects another feed so she can fall asleep at the breast before being put in her hammock to sleep. This has been going on for about a week now. She was also starting to sleep longer stretches at night (up to 8 hours once) and that is all gone too.
A bit of background on the situation too. I have a 3 and a half year son as well who goes to daycare between 9am and 1pm. Until 2 weeks ago that arrangement worked fine. Then my daughter started waking up everytime I was transferring her from her hammock to the car seat and vice versa. I changed the times my son was going to daycare hoping that will allow my daughter to sleep longer. Unfortunately she seems to be stuck in that habit of sleeping 45 minutes and waking up for a snack. I am not sure how to break that. Please help!
