drea - February 12

All of a sudden my dd is waking up like 3-4 times at night and I cant get her out of the habit. I feel like we've tried everything. We have let her CIO (which I hate), given a paci, rocked her, changed diaper and fed her. In the past she has only woken up 1 time at most and then take a few ounces and go right back to bed, but now she'll take a few ounces and either not go back or go back and wake up like an hour later, then we'll soothe her or let her cry sh__l go back and wake up again. It's exhausting. I dont feel any teeth coming in although she is constantly drooling, but she has been since a few weeks old, she doesnt seem to be in any discomfort b/c when we go to her she giggles or smiles. I dont know what to do, I've tried to change her bedtime's but that hasnt worked and she has been on solids for 2 weeks. She is alos not wanting to nap that much during the day, but is always in good spirits (unless she is totally exhausted). Any Advice???? (sorry so long)

well i can tell you i know how you feel. my ds is 16 weeks and he is doing the same, but a few more wake times. he has been getting up 10-12 trimes a nght! ahhh..... he was getting pretty good with his sleep before, only 1 wake for food and tehn sometimes 2 but i could handle that. lately he has been getting up so much and his longerst sleet time has been 2-3 hrs. he is back to being a newborn! what's up with it?

I dont know, but I hope it goes back to normal soon b/c me and dh are exhausted. wow 10-12 times, and I thought I had it bad, sorry :-(. I started to write down all of her naps (if any) and feeding times and at the end of the week I will evaluate her shedule to see whats going on, and maybe call the doctor. who knows. good luck with your little guy

No advice here, but my son is 4.5 omonths old, used to sleep through with one, maybe 2 wakings to have a quick bit of food, then back to sleep. For about 2 weeks now he's been waking all night... usually at least 6 times. He's been napping great during the day... morning and afternoon, has been in a great mood, I don't think he's teething, he's been on solids for about a week now... sorry I'm no help, but you're not alone!!! It's so very tiring lol...

Also, lin you mentioned his longest sleep time now being 2 -3 hours. My ds too. He used to sleep for 8 hour stretches!! What a shock to have it all turned around haha. I guess you can't get used to anything, they just go and change it up on you!
