    Default Re: help my baby girl sleep through the night!

    Oh and I can't help but I can offer bucketloads of empathy because my little boy didn't sleep through.... I won't say till what age I don't want to be depressing lol.

    My 6 month old wakes frequently and it's wearing me down. Ive seen the chn and am seriously considering going to tresillian, seeing as there will be a wait list I'd rather try to get in now.

    Default Re: help my baby girl sleep through the night!

    DS nursed 3 hourly from birth to 9 months, he then did 1 five hour stretch during the night and 3 hourly of a day.

    At 14 months he nursed twice a day and still every few hours over night.

    From 16-20 months he woke hourly to nurse, drove me quietly insane til I force night weened (but IMO 9 months is way to young to get that).

    Now he wakes every 4 Ish hours over night and he is 27 months, not full waking anymore only the half wake roll around til I find mum wakes now

    Default help my baby girl sleep through the night!

    Sorry to hear about your sleep problem! It is one of the worst things a mother can go through (in my opinion). My daughter's sleep deteriorated when she was 4mths to the extend where she woke up every 20-30mins every single night! It was horror!
    We went to sleep school and they told us sorry they couldn't really help! She is a very determined little munchkin!
    Anyway the only thing that gave us some sanity was co-sleeping, while it did not keep her from waking it did make the wake ups shorter and it was a lot easier on us. She is now 2.5 and still sleeps in our bed.. But she has finally started sleeping better. For the last few months she has started sleeping longer periods at a time and now even if she does wake up I quickly shush her and she goes back to sleep.
    I would try sleep school, Although it didn't work for us, it does for most! All the best!

    This was happening recently with dd after a bout of sickness. She was nearly 2 at the time, but I started delaying the bottles as much as I could. I also gave her an extra arvo bottle, she never really drank much, but I felt better knowing I offered it.

    Wow, I didn't know my comment would get so many reactions! I didn't just pull that comment out of thin air. I have a recent edition of "What To Expect - First Year", and thats where I read it.

    I was actually re-reading the pages on sleeping today as my DS decided to wake about 8 times last night and was looking for a magic solution to the problem (no such luck, unfortunately!).

    I don't believe this is true. My son was born almost 5kg, and it was unrealistic to expect him to sleep through not long after birth.

    Default help my baby girl sleep through the night!

    I have recently had some success getting my almost 9 month old to sleep through again. He slept through from about 6 weeks until 5 1/2 months and then he got sick with a bad cough and following that his teeth starting coming all at once (He now has 8 teeth!!)

    What works for us is to ensure he had adequate sleep during the day. I have also been occasionally putting Infacol in his night bottle as he was waking with wind up until recently and finding it difficult to settle himself again after waking with a belly ache.

    On an average day, his first day sleep is at around 8:30am and he sleeps anywhere from 45mins - 1 1/2 hrs. The second sleep is at around 12 -12:30pm and he sleeps for up to 3 hrs. If he wakes before he's had 2 hrs I settle him and put him back to sleep.

    This has worked for us! Good luck!!

    Hell, I'm over 5kg and even I get hungry some nights. Or I have a nightmare, feel sick, uncomfortable, sore, cold, hot, thirsty, lonely...
