Baby waking every 2 hours in the nite

My baby girl is now 11 months and she is waking every two hours during the night. I give her bottle and she's fine for another two hours. She is fed on solids and milk all day. I come home from work at 5 and just give her milk. Is this maybe why she's awaking constantly through the night. I have even given her porridge at 6.30 as she's ready for sleeps at 7pm and still she awakens!!!!! Help...

My 8 1/2 month old just started to wake again at night after being such a good sleeper. I don't think he is teething but that could be a reason for them to wake. If you are feeding her well in the day I wouldn't think she is hungry. A friend of mine told me to put several soothers in the crib, that way it might be easier for them to find one and , sooth themselves back to sleep. Also I guess with all the new milestones and things, also maybe separation anxiety going on it can also disrupt their sleep. I am not sure there is much we can do but wait it out. Some nights mine with sleep the entire night, others wake every 1-2 hrs as well or wake only once or twice. I either just need to give him the soother or if he is really screaming and won't stop I pick him up and he cuddles and falls right back to sleep. I think mine has some separation anxiety. It is so hard to tell!! hang in there!
