    ive finally got my baby girl to sleep in her moses basket....RESULT :thumbup:, she gets a bottle at 5:30-6pm, then another at 9:30-10pm. The thing is between these feeds she gets really tired a wants to sleep. she gets grumpy and upset until she gets to sleep. I know this is probably the reason she isnt sleeping all night. but i just cant keep her awake.........

    please advise me im lost :wacko:

    In my experience the amount of sleep LO has in the day does not affect the night time sleep. I found keeping her awake made it worse if anything, because LO would become overtired, and then really upset, which made it really difficult to settle her. If she needs to sleep I would just let her. She's still very little, and so will be packing lots of sleep into her days at the moment.
    Sorry I can't be more help! x

    might be worth trying to put her down for the night at 7ish then dream feeding the next feed?

    I agree with both the above posts, bed at 7 and dream feed at 10. And seriously agree on the sleep i the day is fine, Kitty gets really over tired.
