    What times are bubs day naps if bedtime is at 7:30?

    I would personally ditch the dummy and replace it with a cloth comforter. Dummies can be notorious for affecting bubs ability to self settle and causing night waking - especially if they are still around when the 4 month sleep regression hits.

    If you want bub to sleep better at night there is no reason why you need to accept the night wakings and ride it out. If bub is established on solids, room temp and bedding is consistently appropriate, and medical issues have been ruled out .... Then chances are the make up of day sleeps and how bub is put to sleep/resettled are key contributors to the night waking. It's not always easy by any means (process of elimination itself can take time) however if you want the night wakings to end sooner rather than later theres a good chance that's an obtainable goal. Feel free to PM me if you need a hand or want to swap ideas.

    She normally has a nap in the morning between 830-930am, then another one between 12-1 and then an afternoon nap around 3-4 but she doesn't always fall asleep at these times, give or take half an hour for each nap!

    I don't want her to always have the dummy but at the moment it soothes her so well, but I'm going to start ditching it for day naps and see how we go!

    IMO 6 months is too late to start worrying. If habits parents don't want to sustain (and yes that will differ for each person) aren't ditched by the 4 month sleep regression then there's a greater chance they will become entrenched. Habits are much harder to break the older bub gets.

    She's having solids 2-3 times a day, followed by a few sips of water along with breastfeeding throughout the day, room temp is fine, bedding is fine, she has a nightlight also.

    We resettle her by rubbing her chest and shushing her, we avoid picking her up and rocking her unless she is absolutely hysterical

    Even with feeding her solids she just always seems hungry to me. She only breastfeeds for max 10 minutes and then she doesn't want anymore but then wants food again an hour or so later. The wonder weeks app says that during this growth spurt she will eat less, but more often, and sleep less so I'm really hoping this is the case and it's not my milk supply or anything else. I'm so stressed

    What is bub having for solids? How much? And at what times in relation to BF? At 6 months unless bub is consistently on 3 x solids per day including protein and carb bub may very well be waking from hunger.

    At 6 months I would look into ditching the third nap. It's possible that with a third nap bub isn't tired enough to sleep solidly at night.This may mean there is a need for greater consistency with the other two day naps though (it's a fine line between not tired enough and over tired).

    She's got puréed fruit (normally apple and pear) for breakfast and puréed veg (we alternate between carrot & sweet potato and cauliflower and broccoli) for lunch and dinner.

    We stopped for a while about a month ago because she got badly constipated but she's not anymore.

    Even if she only sleeps no longer than an hour each nap?
