Is anyone else having the same problem as me??? My 5 month old used to sleep through the night and had 2 breast feeds while still asleep, but now she's decided to wake up fully at around 3-4am!!! She shouts dadadadad and plays with her dummy and even giggles to herself!! Health V. recommended I started her on solids so I have, but that isnt making any difference! She usually plays for about 2-hours. Havent been getting her out of her cot, I just lie in bed, waiting for her to go back to sleep. Im knackered!!!
yes we have the all singing dancing 5 month (almost!) old at 3am. Only started the past few days after sleeping till 7 from being about 5wks old. Have decided to play the i'll pretend i'm asleep and then hopefully you'll back to sleep game. Didnt work today tho. Gave in at about 5 and got up.
Thanks for the advice!! Im glad it's not just me having this problem! The only thing is though, MarsLady, I try my best to go back to sleep but I just can't! Don't know why! Thought she might have stopped waking up now that she's eating a bit as well. Never mind, I've coped for 5 months of sleepless nights, I'm sure I can manage a few more months!!!
