    Again I will say,,,,TOTALLY NORMAL FOR BABIES TO WAKE 5 TIMES A NIGHT.
    You're welcome.

    Now where is the information backing your stance? Or is it your own personal belief that you're sprouting?

    I say your view is an irresponsible one to be putting out their for new mothers who may not know any different. In saying 6 month old babies waking 5+ times per night is normal you are dissuading (probably unintentionally) sleep deprived mothers from aiming higher and getting help with a problem that *can* be resolved.

    Most night waking is due to sleep association problems which *can* be fixed (not always).

    New mums: please seek assistance, don't be shy just because some folks on a forum whose babies woke 5+ times per night said it was normal.

    By the same token

    New mum: it's normal for you child to go through periods of waking up 5+ times a night. It is most common 6-12mths and again at 18-20mths.

    Many things esp separation anxiety and teething, cause this and you are not a bad mother and your child is not abnormal if they do so.

    Some kids have it longer others shorter but it's all NORMAL!

    I'm getting out before I get banned.
