my dd2 of 6 months has been sleeping through the noght for some time but this week she has become restless and waking at around 4.30am, i have not fed her at this time as i think it will create more problems and she is not crying so no harm done.

she goes to bed at 8pm and she is shattered at that time, she goes in her cot awake and gets herself off to sleep, no problem, we dream feed her at 11pm...ish and again she goes back off to sleep really well...its just this 4.30am thingy...any ideas to stop this from happening as i was just starting to feel human again after sleepless nights etc.

p.s...dont really want to feed her at 4.30 as she would sleep and we need to be up and out for dd1 to take to school....it would mess up a lovely routine for the day time.

No advice i'm afraid as i have the same problem with DD who is also 6 months. She goes down at 7pm with no problem and sometimes sleeps through to 6am but recently has been 3.30 - 4.30 and sometimes she comes in bed with us and falls asleep and sometimes we have to feed her to get her to sleep. Yes building rod for own back but need to get back to sleep as recently gone back to work! Interested to see if you get any other advice but in the meantime good luck!!

well at least i am not alone eh?

i was sooooo tempted last night to do a feed but didnt, its so hard when you think you have cracked the sleepless nights then the little monkeys put a spanner in the works.

i have put dd in bed with us to see if that gets her off but last night was a nightmare, she just would not go to sleep.

she is sound asleep at the moment and i could easily join her, but dd2 needs collecting from school so thats that.

lets hope we get some replies soon eh, let me know how you get on.

I've got a 6 month old thats worse than that! she must be an insomniac baby as she is up at around 6am naps for half hour between 9 - 11 sometimes later then another half hour nap between 1 - 3 and another half hour between 4 - 6 then bed at 7 - 8pm waking for 5oz milk at 11 - 12 then a couple of oz again at 4ish! Today was worse up at 5.30, naps at 11, 3 then 6 and to bed at 9.30! I've forgotten what a full nights sleep is like

my 6 month old has been slowly waking up earlier.She goes to bed about 7-7.30 and normally wakes about 7.30 but last week or so has been 6am.
Might just be a coincedence (spelling not my best point) but the mornings are alot lighter so i think it may have something to do with that. gonna try black out blinds.
