My daughter is almost 8 months old now and she refuses to sleep through the night. Ive tried everything you can think of. Shes breast fed and wakes up about 3-4 times a night on average and on bad nights every hour.
Ive tried making sure she has enough food in the day, also offering her more breast milk in the day and also water. Ive tried getting her in a routine in both the day and night. I offer her water in the night.
Nothing seems to be working. She will wake up, take a small feed of a bit of water and go back to sleep for anything from 1 hour to 3 hours before waking up again.
Does anyone have any ideas why she might be doing this and any ideas on how to stop her waking up all the time. I would love her to sleep through but would be happy if she only woke up once or twice a night.
The lack of sleep if just getting to me now and making it hard for me to function during the day.
