    Default At my wits end.

    I was thinking about it...when my dd used to wake in the night and wouldn't resettle we would 'reset' her by redoing bedtime routine from bath. So bath, story, bottle/breast, bed.

    Thanks for the suggestions! It may be hunger as she is on solids but she doesn"t have a huge amount everyday, she has about 3 spoonfuls 2-3 times a day, I also give her toast/fruit that she can eat (read: play with) as well. She is still primarily a boob girl, doesn't eat huge amounts though. I might try the night time re-do as well, I usually do bath, massage, put on the in the night garden DVD and rock her to sleep.

    Hang in there mummy. I would assume she is in pain or something is wrong. My dd became an awful sleeper and we kept chasing it up because something just wasn't right. Found out something was wrong (nothing too major)
    Good luck. Hope you get some sleep soon.

    Oh you are going to hate me for saying this but she really needs more solids. 3 spoonfuls 3x a day is just not enough solids at 8 months. You really need to start experimenting with food and find what she likes. Using the chewing muscles is necessary for good speech. If she does not like purée then increase finger foods. Steamed baby zucchini, steamed carrot sticks, toast with avocado, cruskets with Vegemite...get excited about trying new stuff. I think your bubba might be hungry.

    And I'm not sure I'd give an 8 month old Vegemite... But that's just my opinion

    I think its the sodium levels but in tiny amounts I wouldn't see an issue.

    I agree with PPs, try more solids. If that doesn't work after a few days then I would take bub back to the Dr and see about getting a referral for a sleep test. There may be something going on a gp can't see like sleep apnea or the like.

    ETA: just a thought, you said she is primarily a boob bub. Is there something in your diet that could be passing through? If not have you considered lactose intolerance? I'm LI and it took a long time to realise what I thought was normal was actually LI symptoms like broken sleep, bloating etc. Again bub would probably need tests for that.

    Not only sodium levels in Vegemite, but it's also the worst offender when it comes to preservatives, colours and additives.
