“I love your fantastic website and facebook page. I find myself often monitoring the answers to the questions posted! Now I am hoping for some advice about my 8 month old boy’s night time wakings. He will sleep all night without a peep a few nights a week but the rest of the time he will stir (generally only once) and become distressed and is really difficult to re-settle unless I feed him, which I am trying to avoid. I don’t think he should be hungry, he eats 3 really generous meals and is breastfed 4 times during the day. He goes to sleep himself at bedtime and naps and I hear him stir and settle himself some nights. He started sleeping through the night (7pm – 6pm) at 3 months and did so consistently until about 4.5 months. Then a series of things happened, eczema arrived, holidays, a wonder week, teething etc and he has just never gone back to consistently sleeping through. I am just frustrated that I can’t work out what differs some nights. I know that they are going through so many changes and he is a very active and alert baby so am I expecting too much that he should sleep through the night more consistently or is there something I can do to help him (and me) sleep better? Thanks you in advance for your advice!”Do you have any advice for an 8 month old’s night time wakings?
