She often skips her daytime naps, sleeps badly at night and wants to feed every 2 hrs during the night. how do i fix this routine?

well why don't you try sitting in a rocking chair or rock her while you feed her a warm bottle of milk at night while patting her butt because babies LOVE it!:) and she should NOT be eating every 2 hrs. go have her checked by the doctor...!

hope this helped
go moms!

Hi there! I have 2 kids (a 3 yr old & a 6 month old) and we have a pretty good routine. My 6 month old usually wakes up around 7am, goes down for hist first nap at 9am and sleeps until 11am. Then he goes down for his 2nd nap around 1pm and will sleep until about 3-3:30pm. Then he has a cat nap around 5pm but it's just a short one (45 min). Has dinner at 6pm, bath, and a bottle then down for the night by 7pm. He sleeps through the night and has been for several months. If I remember my oldest dropped her 3rd nap at about 6-7 months but my son still needs it. If they are going, going, going all day without naps they will wake up a lot at night. The more rest they get the more likely they are to sleep better at night and take great naps. Hope that helps!

Wear her out during the day. Maybe she is teething? Give her some Tylenol if she is.
