My baby girl is 5 months old on Weds and is quite a content baby during the day. She's only slept through to 6 a couple of times but until recently was waking at 4 for a feed then going until 6 then 7 and then 8. I thought that was quite knackering but for the past couple of weeks she's waking all through the night whinging or crying. Sometimes she'll settle herself but most of the time I have to feed her. At the first wake up she'll take a full bottle nearly but all the other wake ups she just needs a few sucks of her bottle and then she's asleep again but then can wake up an hour later. She can be waking up around 5 times and I'm knackered and thinking she's never going to sleep through. I'm the sort of person who can't cope on little sleep so I'm desperate for her to even just go back to the times where she woke at 4!
I've tried feeding her at 10pm but she still woke up early even though she wasnt hungry so I offered her water to which she feel asleep after but then woke up 45 mins later. I feel like I'm trying all sorts of things and it's just stressing me out as it's not working! Please tell me she wont always be a rubbish sleeper!!
