Answer: Hi Selina, Often a baby`s sleep pattern will change with the onset of 8 month separation anxiety when new and unwanted habits can be formed easily. Firstly it is essential that she goes into her cot awake initially at night. At this age she would no longer require an overnight feed so I would recommend using our It`s Time To Sleep settling techniques to resettle her instead of offering her a feed as this has now become her sleep associaiton and she wakes and looks for this comfort to return to sleep. You can get details from `Your Baby`s Sleep` or www.itstimetosleep.com Cheers, Maree
