Sleep Through Lock Rss

Hi, I have a 6,5 months baby girl. She usually start sleeping between 7-8.30 pm and wake up the next morning around 6-7 am. However she always wakes up in the middle of the night around 2-3 times just to have a 2-3 minutes feed (breastfeed). I am not sure that's called feeding or not. But surely after that, she release her mouth from the breast and she goes back to sleep by herself. Is that a normal thing or is there anyway I can stop her for just having a quick supper in the middle of the night. Thanks for your advice.

Hi,
This really doesn’t sound like a feed at all but rather a habit that has become a sleep association. This is a very normal thing and if you want to break the habit you will need to stop the comfort feed when she wakes and you could try using settling techniques to resettle her instead. This will mean some crying and more fuss than usual but in a week or so you will have her sleeping through the night.

You can get details of our settling program from <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page or from It’s time to Sleep DVD&BOOK. Huggies have a great discount offer on at the moment – see <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/about_huggies/special_offers/bookoffer/">Member Exclusive Book Offers</a>
