5 month old DD has 3 40 minute cat naps during the day but will sleep 7pm-7am with one night waking. Recently she has started waking 4 times a night and needing re-settling with either pats or a feed. She'll then sleep until 9am. What should I do to get her back to her old routine?

Sleeping in but waking through the night

Babies change their routines a lot and many experience a sleep regression around that 5 months of age. Can you eliminate any reasons for the waking? hunger/cold/pain etc?
DS went from 1 night waking to many at around 5 months as he was hungry and needed to eat more during the day. We started and increased solids until he went back to 1 night feed. So that could be worth a try.
