Sleeping Through The Night Almost

My dd is about 9 weeks old and starting last Thursday she slept through the night (yay!!!). From about 9:30 / 10:00 pm until 6:00 am. She did it again on Friday night and then Saturday and Sunday night she woke at 4:00 am to eat. Monday night she slept through and last night (Tuesday) she woke at 4:00 am. I dont' mind her waking at 4:00 am to eat (and she is hungry cause I tried the pacifier to get her back to sleep and she didn't want it) Right now it isn't bad getting up as I am off work, but when I return I really don't want her to getting up at 4:00 am cause I will be getting up around 5:00 am. Anyone have any advice as to how I can get her to sleep and extra hour / hour and half. She has her last bottle around 8:30 pm and to bed at 9:00 pm and falls asleep between 9:00 and 10:00 pm. She is drinking about 25 ounces during the day and weighed 11.8 at her appointment last week. She drinks 5 ounces during the day and I try for 6 at the last feeding, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Sorry for the long post - looking forward to your comments!

Oh - when she does wake at 4:00 am, she'll drink her entire bottle and back to sleep until about 8:00 or so.

The only thing I can really think of if you can't get her to drink more on that last bottle is to give it to her later, which would mean putting her to bed later, and if you go to bed at the same time as her then you would be going to bed later, which would mean you would still be getting less sleep, which would defeat the purpose...but if you put her down and go to bed later anyway then keeping her up to give her the bottle later wouldn't be a big deal. She may fight it though if she is used to having it at a certain time and going to bed at a certain time. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

In my opinion, and from my experience. Their sleeping habits ALWAYS change. My son started sleeping through the night at five weeks and at three months started waking up two times a night again. He is five months and wakes up once. Starting solids didn't help either, like everyone says. He goes to bed about the same time every night, but it just depends on what time he feels like waking up. I have tried everything, and there is nothing I can do to get him to sleep.
