My daughter was always a brilliant sleeper but about a month ago aged 8 months she started waking numerous times a night i will not give her a bottle during the night as i dont want to start that routine, and i dont take her out the cot either. I really need to ideas as i am getting really tired now
Thank you in advance x

She could be teething or going through a growth period. If she is teething, give her some teething gel or cold teething ring. You can evaluate if she is teething during her bath before bed, that way you are prepared.

She is also becoming aware that if she cries and you will come running. You will need to learn to wait a bit longer each time before you go into her. I know it will be difficult to do but like you said you are "getting really tired now."

Yes check on her to make sure she is safe BUT without overhead lights, just use the nightlight.
