    She shouldn't be hungry as its just after a feed when I put her down for the night. Could be attention? Last night she did it every 1-2 hours and I was so exhausted I brought her into my bed to demand feed :-(

    Did you both get more rest after she came in with you? Maybe she just wants to be close to Mum.

    there is nothing wrong with bedsharing and feeding when babies wants to, if it is done safely and works for you.

    Mmm don't think I had more rest, can't remember the exact time I brought her into the bed. She usually feeds 2-3 times over night, so I am not too happy about the increased fussiness :-(

    Sometimes it really is just to cuddle, as tiring as it is. With my dd the screaming with dummy in is always another bubble of air deep in her tummy that takes a bit to come up & sometimes when she does a big wee she screams with dummy in. I'm probably not helpful

    Maybe she just wants a bit of comfort to go back to sleep. Have you tried patting her back to sleep?

    Maybe she doesn't want her dummy anymore? Can she go to sleep without it?

    Also how long does she cry for before you go in? Often babies cry in their sleep, is it possible she is still asleep when you go in and you going in wakes her up?

    I'm not sure if you are happy for her to cry a little, but maybe try leaving her for 3-5 minutes to see if she is fully awake. DD has recently dropped a night feed, but now she often wakes up and cries for a couple of minutes, but then goes right back to sleep.

    When did it start? It's possible it's a growth spurt and I find nothing other than feeding will calm them down during one and it can last about a week!
