    does this sound ok?


    7.30-wake up (BF usually at 6)
    8.30-solid brekkie of mashed fruit and rice
    9.30-BF and nap for an hour
    12-solid dinner of chicken dinner etc then yoghurt
    2-BF and hour long nap is poss
    4.30-solid tea-usually try savoury but ends up just eating a yoghurt
    6.30-bath
    7-big BF
    8-bed time and top up BF


    she still wakes up to 5 times a night, 3 on a good night
    i try giving her a big meal at tea time but she just wants yoghurt and seems too tired to eat

    what am i doing wrong? xxx

    Our routine is the same as yours, except he has an extra nap around 5, then we have dinner around 6. He doesnt normally sleep for an hour though.More like 20 mins.

    Our routine sounds almost ientical to yours - Except LO eats loads! She has poridge and yoghurt for breakfast, meat and veg and yoghurt for lunch and meat and veg and another for dessert for dinner! She usualy has snacks too - eg rice cakes/fruit! Shes only dinky still though! LO wakes up all night too so your not alone! I haveno advice sadly as Im at my wits end with my LO. Her wake up time is 530am! I ve tried everything to get her to STTN but she never has! If I get 3 hours before she wakesup crying im lucky :cry:

    se can sleep through the night, but doesn't always. teething always messes with her sleep. some nights she will wake once others she sleeps through.

    Emily was 6 7 at birh and weighed 16 14 a 6.5 months so must weigh about 17.5 pounds now. I dont know what to do either! I put her to bed at 6pm tonight, its not 7.30pm and shes woke up 3 times! Shes definately tired and is full up as she had her dinner at 5pm and she had a bottle at 6pm! Shes clean fed and still not happy :( I feel like shes never going to STTN. Solids havnt helped her sleep longing like everyone told me! Im bak to work next month so god knows how Im going to concentrate!

    Shes showing no signs of teething either and has always slept like this except recently instead of waking up babbling/moaning she is hysterical :shrug:

    Elsie was 13lbs 7.5oz two weeks ago so she's a lot smaller!
    Her routine is -
    7.30am. Wake up, bf.
    8.30am. Breakfast.
    10am. Nap usually 1.5hrs
    12pm. Bf.
    12.30pm. Dinner and pudding.
    3pm. Nap usually 1.5hrs
    4.30pm. Bf
    5.30pm. Tea and pudding.
    7.30pm. Bf.
    8pm. Sleep.

    This past month Elsie has started to occasionally sleep through the night (she's done it 3 times now :happydance:) she doesn't bf in the night but she does wake up a few times for her dummy or because she's rolled over in her sleep.

    Our routine is -

    8.30am - wakes up and has breakfast, usually porridge
    9am - Gets dressed, has a play
    11.30 - 12pm - Dinnertime - a savoury meal
    12pm - 2pm - Sleep time
    2pm - Finger food
    2.15pm - Play
    4.30pm - Sleep
    5.15pm - Tea - Savoury and then has a pudding which is usually fruit
    5.45pm - Play
    7.30pm - Bath
    8pm - Bed

    Usually the bottles aren't at a set time, but he will have them every 4 hours in the day, 6oz a time. At first he was waking up lots more in the night so one night we thought lets see if hes actually hungry, so we left him to it, after 20 minutes he stopped crying and went back to sleep and then slept through till 7am so he obviously wasn't hungry it was just habit, hes slept through since that night xx
