My daughter has just turned 4 months old and for the past 3 week or so has been waking up at about 5.30 every morning. and its driving me crazy!!
She has always been a good night sleeper, we start her winding down/bath/bottle/bed routine at about 7 and she is generally in bed by 8.30 - 9. and she then sleeps through until 5.30 (although i do have to get up a couple of times to put her dummy back in her mouth). i know this is good and i probably shouldn't complain but if she would just sleep in an extra hour i'd be much happier, and far less tired. for about the past week i've been just getting up and standing by her cot to keep giving her back her dummy and patting her on the back just trying to teach her to stay settled but doesn't seem to change anything. someone told me not to feed her because she'll get used to it and just keep waking.
does anyone have any ideas to help me?
