Our eight month old girl slept through the night from 6pm to 6am until the age of six months . Since then it has gradually deteriorated and in the last week she has begun waking 2-3 times a night and wakes up at 5am ish to start the day. She is generally easy to resettle each times she wakes- I resist giving her a bottle unless she is looking hungry and generally just tuck her in firmly and shoosh her. I am really at a loss as to understand why she is waking so frequently - I do wonder if it is maybe hunger driven as she does take over 200 mls when i do 'give in' and feed her.
The strategies i have been using so far are to try to increase her feeds during the day, to return to a late night feed, to resettle her without giving her a bottle and to wrap her firmly in her sheets ( she does wriggle out though). Her day sleep are fine with two of one hour duration each. Both day and night she is no trouble to settle to sleep ( takes 5 minutes tops) . Its just getting her to saty asleep! Or wake only once ( this would be heaven...)
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated!
Ps No sign of any teeth as yet. Could the loss of appetite during the day be an indicator?
