    It's my fault @A-Squared as I'm tired and cranky thus sensitive more to nuances. We've had an exceptionally social week, so I've been unable to catch up on sleep at naptime. Dd3 is waking every 40min since starting solids. Gah!

    My eldest was the same and I know I need to just ride this out to 9/10mths and it will resolve when she is ready. But it's frustrating to just wait. I keep having to tell myself this will pass.

    I dealt with tiredness way better at 26 than now at almost 32!!!

    BTW for my kids - solids make sleep worse. Not better. As in horrendously worse. They don't improve till over 12mths. And this is why I like to delay them till 7-8mths.

    Can't offer much advice, just camaraderie.
    It can also be helpful to know that babies tend to have their deepest sleep for about the first 5 hours, followed by might lighter sleep. That's why it's really common for babies to sleep solidly until about midnight, and then be up and down for the rest of the night.

    Great point about the 5 hours.

    If bub had too much day sleep/not enough/the sleep environment has changed, it is more likely to come to a head at the 5 hourish mark.

    Every 40 minutes - you poor thing. You must be a very strong woman. One 6am early rise and I'm like "wtf! How did that happen and how can I fix it!." No riding it out for this old jockey!

    Dudette 6am is a sleep in here. Dawn service was so easy yesterday as dd3 was chirpy at 4.35am and my kids are normally awake from 5.30am.

    But then I'm a spring chicken mum and you are a dinosaur :P

    Eta- I also don't like to think my kids need fixing. In my head, their sleeping patterns are part of their personality and I need to respect that.

    Update!

    So last night was actually really great!

    She self settled at 630pm, woke up at 1230am then again at 3 (at which point she was wide awake but she stayed in her cot and put herself back to sleep) and then she woke for the day at 7am!

    All we did differently was put her to bed between 6-7 rather than between 7-8!

    Guess the timing really makes a difference!

    Great news!!!! It seems like it was the scheduling that may have been the issue and she was over-tired.

    Great work Mumma!

    Thank you! I'm hoping that the timing was the issue and she continues to do this! She gone down for her morning nap (self settled again, yay!) at 930 and is currently still asleep!
