    Default Ongoing evening waking

    Hi folks
    I'm going bonkers. My 7mobth old has been waking up most evenings atleast 3-4 times before sleeping through!

    I have posted abt this problem b4 but I'm hoping someone has been in the same boat as me!!!

    I thought it's a temp thing as sometimes she likes the fan on and won't wake and sometimes wants it off with blankets.

    I've had this problem for 6 weeks and not at a resolution as yet!!

    What could be waking her up every 40mins Till the 10pm Mark??!

    Anyone had this?
    What do I do ?? Lol I'm going crazy here. I miss my evenings of mummy time! Constantly resettling her.
    Pls help ))

    It's not teething. As she's been doing it every night. It's like she can't link the sleep cycles together in the eve! But can in the day time and overnight!

    What is she eating for evening meal? Maybe her tummy is annoying her?

    Hi. She's a good eater. Eats meat and veg. Sometimes veg only. Regardless of dinner she wakes up!

    Thought she was hungry. Su fed her at the start but soon worked out if wasn't that!

    My GP told me to only feed my DD rice or totally bland things in the evening when I was having this trouble. She thought that veg and meat were too hard to digest at such a young age and to keep that food for lunch time, and just give rice in the evening. I don't know if it was good advise or if it will help you but just sharing invade it does.

    How long before putting her down for the night does she eat dinner? Had a similar problem with ds when he started solids, he'd be up/down/up/down until about midnight, then I wouldn't hear a peep until 7ish. We knew it was food related as he had slept through without fail since nb until that point.

    After eliminating various foods, we found that we were simply putting him down too soon (for him) after eating & his reflux was acting up. Obviously after awhile it was digested enough & he slept calmly. Once I started having dinner a bit earlier, he wad much more settled and returned to his sleeping through hurrah😊

    Seems to me it's an attention thing

    I would try and let your DS or Dd self settle and explain your there etc but it's time to go back to sleep. Crying is ok. It's beneficial for children. There is different types of Crying. I'm not saying CIO. Even if you cuddle her etc (I'm not sure on the way you put her to sleep) breast etc but yeah she's obviously not self settling.

    We have a strict routine dinner 5:30, bath, milk. Story bed time 7. I would possibly be looking at day sleeps too.

    She would be needing two sleeps still and solid. My DS sleeps 11-2/3 depending we are just cutting it back now as his age. But day sleep helps night. Always wake at 7 in order to make a day sleep happen!

    I ended up bringing dinner back to 4:30pm which we still do (i eat with the kids, dh eats when he gets home) he has a pretty regular bedtime of 6:30pm even now at 14mths. The bf to sleep didn't seem to affect him like the solids did. Just something to try, hope you can sort things out. I only dealt with it for a couple of weeks and seriously do not know how parents cope with broken sleep all the time. So grateful for 2 perfect sleepers!
