hi mama mel

my baby girl doesn't cry at night and has been able to sleep for at least a few hours at a stretch since 8mth (4hrs to be precise). she still needs to suckle at night (like 11pm and 4am) but doesn't wake up crying. maybe you can share your girl's sleeping time and sleeping duration. naptimes too. to see if she has been getting sufficient sleep?

if your girl has been able to sleep more than 4hrs at a stretch, i think she shld be on the way to sleeping longer. maybe you can try to pat her before she wakes up from crying? i do find that if mygirl hasn't been eating much in the day, she tends to want milk in the middle of the night. what i am doing for this week was simply to offer a bottle just around her bed time. she has porridge at 7pm plus and then i give her a bottle again around 9plus (if she still actively suckling in her sleep).

i do carry and pat my girl till she falls asleep because that is the only time i get to hug her. but she has been pushing me off to sleep on her own after her tummy's filled up with milk. she rather sleep on the bed than have me carry her. after that she sleeps all the way. maybe you can try to give an extra bottle and see if she will fall asleep with a full tummy?

other things i find helpful:
dark environment (no night light)
no patting
bedtime routine (bath/wipe, bed time songs, change into pyjamas)
same bedtime/wakeup time, day in and out, inclusive of weekends
regular naps (30mins to 2hr) at same time
activities to tire our little one out in the day (swimming, go out in garden, learning to cruise/walk, general moving about)

she drinks very little about 100ml to 120ml per feed. she's taking like 3 milk feed and 1 meal plus 2 tea breaks in school. at home 1 dinner and 1 milk. she's 11mths at around 8.5kg. very little but her meal portions are huge. more than average babies. like 1 bowl of porridge and 1 to 2 slice of bread type.
