8 month old won't go back to sleep after a night feed. Lock Rss

My daughter is nearly 8 months old. She usually has one breast feed during the night. Sometimes lately, she cries when I put her back in her cot (she use to go back to sleep on her own straight after her feed). Why is she doing this? Is anyone else experiencing this? What should I do?

Hi carra - my 61/2mth old boy did this last night for the first time - he often wakes at night now to need a resettle either with rewrap or feed but last night after the 3.30am feed he decided he wanted to be awake!! He did not cry really more grizzled and making vocal noises but continued for more than 30 minutes - as we had already been up to resettle at 12.30am I and had to get him to sleep by rocking in the pram which seems to work quickly I decided to do it again and within 5 mins was asleep until 7am.

Do not like getting him out of the cot to resettle but when exhausted sometimes you do what works.

Am hoping it is a one off......
