Olivia has just turned 8 months. She has been going to bed at around 6pm, then without fail would wake somewhere around 9-9.30pm for a final feed, then i often wouldn't hear a peep till maybe 3.30am or if i was lucky even 6 or 6.30am. If my usual settling techniques didn't work at 3.30 i would offer a feed and if she had a biiiiiiig drink i gathered that maybe she was needing it (maybe not??)
I have found these last few nights that she has been waking a LOT (3-7 times a night), often after crawling around the cot, although sometimes she's still in teh middle but crying with her eyes shut.
She is on 3 solids meals a day and breastfeeding 5 or 6 times a day (including the 9.30pm and maybe 3.30am feeds), has 4 teeth and no signs of other teeth coming through. She weighs 7.7kg and is a happy baby.
is this happening to anyone??? i thought the days of getting up more than once a night were over.
looking forward to any advice.
