Night sleeping

Marcie - posted on 02/17/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




We were doing really well at night. But now... she goes to bed at 7 pm and wakes at 11:00pm then in the morning. But the only way to calm her down is to breast feed her. I am trying weaning during the day and am wondering if maybe her tummy hurts. Any advice.

My son is the same way that he started waking in the night when he was teething and I gave him bottles which was a big mistake because yes he went back to sleep but now he has gotten used to it and won't go back to sleep without one. I found out also that letting them go to sleep with milk or juice will actually rot their teeth so if anything I guess water is best. But now I don't know what to do ether because I followed the whole let them cry for 5 min then go settle them down and then leave them for longer periods of time and after about 3 nights they will get used to it and be able to put themselves back to sleep... but that did not happen. He just got more and more upset and that could have went on for hours.

Try offering her a drink of water or juice when she wakes, I was having similar problems with my son, he was sleeping straight through until he started teething and now hes started waking up, I gave him bottles at first to settle him but now am trying a little water and a cuddle, he usually goes back down after about 15-20mins now, I didnt want him getting back into the routine of having a feed in the middle of the night again.
