    Default 6.5month and still not sleeping through the night

    It has been more settled than previously but still waking up 1.30am, 4.30am, 530am. Tried dreamfeed, cot to baby rocker, still no change in pattern. Changing nappies even made it worse cos made him alert and took 2 hours to go back to sleep!

    Sleeps 7.30pm and wakes 7am

    Anyone with same problem?

    Yeah I'm the same with DS2. He's 5.5months and still feeding 2-3 hourly around the clock. At 10 weeks he started sleeping through but it was short lived. He's not on solids yet as he's not ready so I'm thinking it could be that?

    My 13mo doesn't sleep through the night, so yeah, I feel your pain!! It's really not uncommon for a 6mo to not be sleeping through. The 4.30/ 5.30am wakes could be because bub is cold?

    Lol! Sorry to crash this section, but it came up in new posts. My 2.5 year old doesn't always sleep through! 6.5 months is definitely young enough to still be waking and even though they may sleep through, it will probably change!

    Our boy only started sleeping through the night at about 15/16 months.
    The wake-ups during the night dropped slowly from 3 or 4 to 1 and then none. He also slept from 7pm-ish to 7am-ish, 12 hours, minus wake-ups for feeding/changing. Not every bub sleeps through early on unfortunately. Totally normal I'm told.

    This is exactly my experience too
    Once the main teething was over.

    I did controlled crying at around that age which cut the down the wakings but the results were never permanent so I gave up trying. Around 10 months it had dropped to around 1 waking most nights and now at 16 months for the past 2 weeks (after cutting her top molars) she has consistently started sleeping right through with no intervention from me.

    Not sure if it'll last but it sure is nice

    Eta: between 8-10 months was really tough, dd started crawling and it all went haywire. She's always been through phases of being a good sleeper and a bad sleeper but only now has it is become more consistent.

    My girl wakes up to 5 times between 7pm and 10pm. I give dream feed around 10.30, then she wakes around 2.30 aswell, and then up to 5 times between 3 & 7. Driving me insane!!!!

    We are going to sleep school, most likely in August. Can't wait. I'm hoping it's the light at the end of the tunnel!
