    My DS uses a dummy and he sleeps fine. As soon as he was able to put the dummy back in his mouth himself (about 5 months) he was sleeping through the night.

    I would suggest trying a dreamfeed that way you can time the feed for right before you go to bed and get a better block of sleep. I used to dreamfeed at 10:30pm which would work well with your routine since it's about 4 hours after the last feed. then hopefully your DD won't wake again until the morning because she's been 'topped up'. My son used to feed really well at his dreamfeed because he was half asleep and all relaxed. He would then fall right back asleep with his dummy and would be good until about 6:30-7am. I think it might be worth a try since it sounds like your DD is waking from hunger.

    What happens if you don't go to her? If she's just a little grizzly could she potentially go back to sleep herself without a kiss/pat from you?

    She might. I don't leave her long enough to find out. She escalates and gets a bit upset so one of us goes in and lays her down and gives her dummy to settle her back down.

    I have never done a dream feed only ever fed on demand. I remember reading somewhere that it's not a good idea to introduce at this late stage but I'll look into that more 😀

    Hmmm.. crawling/walking time is fun for sleep... not!
    And she has flaming red cheeks today I think a top tooth is about to pop 😁

    But scheduling always comes to mind with me when there are sleep issues. Is she always awake by 4:00pm? This may be a cause of the wakings potentially too.
    Sometimes she will sleep til 4:30ish depending what time she goes down for that nap and whether she's been at childcare that day but never sleeps past that. If she wakes at 4:30 she goes to bed a touch later 7:45-8.

    Hi OP. My children would be cold in a 20 degree room (and they sleep with way more blankets then your bub does too). Try setting the heater to 22 degrees and adding an extra blanket or two at her first wake. Good luck. X
