my baby will be 6 months in a few days... she use to sleep thru the night when she was 2months until the past week. She gets up every 2 1/2 hours and sometimes stays up for 30minutes then falls back asleep then 2 1/2 hrs later does the same thing. She doesnt eat most of the times she wakes up. She rubs her eyes like she is tired but wont sleep.
She is getting her two bottom front teeth.The top of one is all the way thru the gum and the other one is almost thru. i figured this could be one reason why she isnt sleeping but not sure and dont want to give her medicine if thats not the problem. Shes never cried or been fussy over anything..even teething so far. What do you think it could be? and if i should use medicine what kind ?
For those who's babies sleep thru the night (around this age) what "food/sleep" schedule are you on? she gets up around 8am sleeps around 1-3 every day then usually takes a 30 min nap around 6 pm then usually goes to bed around 9pm but then begins to wake up every few hours. I give her rice or a little bit of baby food around lunch. then formula the rest of the time she is hungry. should i switch the time i feed her that to help sleep at night?
please help! im getting exhausted over constantly waking up so much during the night!!!!
