    Default 6.5 month old waking several times a night

    For the past 3-4 weeks dd has been stirring and crying several times a night and it usually seems to be cos she has woken up on her tummy so we roll her back and put her dummy in and she will go back to sleep (but I don't) then will do it all again prob a sleep cycle later. She will usually have a bit of a block when she first goes down. Sometimes not. She has previously mostly slept thru the night since 8 weeks old! Has anyone been thru this before?

    Going through this right now! My DD is almost 6.5 months corrected and the last week or so she's been waking multiple times, needing resettling and a feed around 3-4am, and 2 days ago her first tooth broke through the gum! So I'm putting it down to that. She was sleeping through the night beautifully before this and we didn't change any routine.

    I'm having the same thing here with my just-7 month old. It's been going on for a few weeks now and I'm exhausted! He started sleeping through when he was a couple of months old so this is a big shock to the system. He's never needed a dummy to settle but I've resorted to it quite a lot lately. He did just cut his first two teeth but if anything the waking has been worse since they came through. I'm taking him to the GP today to rule out an ear infection. I almost hope that's what it is so I have something to treat and he will go back to sleeping.

    My son was like this for first 18 months of his life sometimes good sometimes bad, they will grow out of it. Just keep everything consistent. But it could be teething, change of environment, watch her sugar intake, lack of exercise during the day, has she acquired a new skill, change of nap time and etc .
