I believe she needs feeding arund that 2 o' little one(3 mo in few days) going to sleep around 8 then wakes up at 2 or 3,feeding and then she sleeps stright away,she doesent even need a dummy recently,till 6-7ish

It's possible she might need feeding. When you first put the dummy in, she will settle if she thinks she is getting fed. When she realises that it's not doing anything then she'll push it out. Then she'll cry again for feeding, so you'll put the dummy in again and so on and so on. I'd try feeding her.

With mine, I usually found that if they wanted a dummy to settle to sleep they usually lasted longer than 10mins once they'd nodded off with it.

shes not crying just not settled

My DD done this....I turned the moses basket around (so her head was next to my bed) so I could hold the dummy in blush....but it worked, she stayed asleep and so did I smile

You'll be doing this forever until she doesn't have a dummy any more.

Only thing for it is to wean cold turkey from the dummy or put uo with replacing it in her mouth.

I'd probably feed her at that first wakening and get her used to not having the dummy in bed.

DS ( same age) gets restless in the night, we out the dummy in if he goes back to sleep which he does mostly then fine, if he is still restless then we feed him, just by not crying doesn't mean he is not hungry.

If she's not crying, what would she do if you didn't put the dummy back in?

Otherwise, I'd do like Littlemissnorty.

But I do think that feeding might solve this.

i think its also cos she cant grip it properly really stuck on what to do cos dont think shes hungry as she was going till 5 ish before and she didnt even need a dummy its only now she started wanting it

shes grown out of moses basket so having to put her in travel cot as not ready to put her in own room yet so its hard to hold dummy in as quite low might take bottle up tonight and see if that works but first might see what happens if i dont put dummy in what you reckon

See what happens if you don't put dummy in but have bottle at the ready

sounds like a good idea think were going to feed her abit earlier as we wake her for her last feed at 10 cos she fed at 4 previously she sleeps in a deep sleep from 8 till 10 so if we feed her before that deep sleep it might work out better then she has a proper bed time and she might really need that feed then at 2 o clock is this a good idea
