This is my 2nd child. with my first DD she was extremely hard to get to sleep through the night. She was breastfed and very colicky in the beg so she started sleeping with me. Then had troubles with separation from me at night. (Now, at 3 yrs old she's been sleeping thru the night since she was 1 1/2)
With my 2nd dd, she has been bottle fed since she was born. My question is, should she be sleeping through the night by now? She's exhausted by 7 every night. So that is her bedtime. She has an 8 oz bottle right before I lay her down. But for instance, tonight she just woke up at 11:15. I gave her a bottle and she went back to sleep. She most likely will wake up again around 2 or 3 to eat.
Should I be giving her these two bottles after bedtime? or - 1 - get her back to sleep by rocking, holding her etc.... or 2 - let her soothe herself back to sleep at these times?
she does wake up between 6-9 every morning and is up till nap time which is between 11 and 1 (depending on what time she gets up in the morning.)
