Hia, Hipp make a drink that is a bit like horlicks but is for babies. Its called "goodnight milk" and is suitable from 6 months to 3 years. You give it just once a day. We havn't tried it yet as DD is only 24 weeks but we have some at the ready! I'm not really sure whether horlicks would be suitable. Maybe check it out with a dietitian/gp/HV.

You could also try chamomile tea. DD loves it.

No, it's behavioural so deal with it on that basis. A drink cannot deal with behavioral stuff imo.

Actually, thats true. She may be in the habit of waking at that time or that may be when she reaches the end of a sleep cycle. DD wakes at 4am <groan> If she is waking up hungry then maybe try the drink, or give it to her at bedtime to help keep her settled.

Maybe watch her sleep, even just from 8.30 onwards to find out whats going on?

Yep I'd agree that it's behavioural, our DS started doing a similar thing, he was breastfed and I gave him some of the Hipps Goodnight Milk in the hope he would stop waking at 10.30pm, but it made no difference.
