Please help me. :)
My 7 month old started waking up really frequently about a month ago wanting to nurse. She went from waking about 3 times between 8pm and 8am (about every 3 hours) to waking every two hours, and sometimes less. I was thinking, "Ok, 6 month growth spurt or something, this will pass," but it continues to get worse! She is now waking hourly and will not go back to sleep unless I nurse her. The only time she really sleeps for any extended period of time at night is one stretch between about 3:30am and 7am. Is there any way to reverse this?
I have tried restricting how much she sleeps during the day, feeding her more solids, including solids just before bed, banana before bed (supposedly banana makes you feel full longer), and nothing has worked.
Any thoughts? Ideas? ....Sympathy? (LOL) What would you do?
