My 4 month old wont sleep longer than 3 hours at night. We started giving her rice cereal at night to fill her up but she keeps waking up without fail every 3 hours. I will nurse her and she will fall back asleep but won't sleep longer than three hours again. She typically only nurses for 5 minutes regardless of my attempts to keep her awake to feed longer. I tried to let her cry ab 10 minutes but that didn't put her back either. Any words of advice?! At three months she slept ab 7 hours for a few weeks so I know she can do it. Please help. Need more sleep

Maybe she's having a growth spurt! Children's sleeping habits change all the time, I always found it was best to feed on demand. I would also stop the rice cereal since solids shouldn't be started till 6 months and you stated its not making a difference.
