hi moms..my 4.5 months old is having difficulty in night sleep. after feed wen I put her to sleep she gets up within minutes max half hour. be it in crib or co-sleeping. then again have to shhhh her or feed to put back...but she getting up frequently in 1 hour in night...any moms faced this? any suggestions to overcome

Reema, my kids at 8 months too get up at least 3 to 4 times in the night. Sometimes it's hunger, sometimes it's just comfort. I guess it's just a phase that shall pass soon.

I can find she is not having a good sleep I doubt she might be having some trouble may be due to gas in stomach . try giving her nice burp after feed else they won't have comfortable sleep. hope it helps .

Is she cranky in the night or playful? Does she sleeps will during the day?

she is not playful in the night..just that she gets up too frequently crying...n then either by feed or rocking sleeps again..day time also not much that she sleeps...at a stretch not more than an hour in day...

Reema feed her lying in the bed and also at night make her wear a diaper so that your baby will not wake up because of loo.

Try keeping her in diapers if you have not be doing so in the night. Even rocking in the night helps put her back to sleep that means she is not always getting up for feeds. So hunger can be ruled out. She could possibly feel hot.. May be you are layering her up with lots of clothes? N finally the only possibility I can think of is bad dreams.. Yes they do dream.. N that must be waking her up from sleep... You can't do much about it.. Just don't forget to cuddle her up n kiss her whenever she wakes up crying.

thanks moms...she is wearing diapers ...not layering her too much...only full sleeves night suit..n 1 blanket if she sleeps in bed with us since fan is on top directly Then...if she sleeps in crib then no blanket since its on side on not directly under fan...she might feel hot then...Honestly I get confused to understand if baby feeling hot or cold...if only she sweats I know it's hot..

Hhmm.. My 2 years old son don't take quilt at all.. He wants to just sleep in night suit n this he is doing since the time he was born. Where as I take two quilts.. I don't get sleep without them.. Lol..but I still feel concern when he wish to sleep without covering himself with any quilt not even thin bedsheet. When he was baby be would cry for the quilt to be removed.. Now he removes in sleep on his own..hahaha

thts insecurity a baby feels many times n wants yor presence. may not really b hungry. or baby is not feeding enough at one time so gets hungry soon n starts crying within no time again. both r possible.

Hi Reema. I agree with Vidhi n Dr Aarushi.. It may b cos of gas , insecurity or hunger..
For my 3 month old I give a powder called 'Somva 34' u get it in medical.
I take a pinch of it and mix in my breastmilk for my baby's 1st feed in the morning. baby will take it easily when he/she is very hungry. This powder has 34 vital ingredients for baby's growth. cos of this baby poops well, sleeps well.
2nd option is- while sleeping in the night make ur room pitch dark. This will give a sense to baby's brain that it's sleep time and he/she will sleepwell. before sleeping give baby a nice burp.. get him/her on daily ritual like saying goodnight to all the rooms and beautiful wall hangings that u may have at home. I have fixed artificial butterflies on the right wall which my baby loves to watch and smiles at those.. its a good pass n play time for her and once she gets tired of it she bcomes cranky n that's an alarm for me to feed/comfort her to sleep.. hope this helps!!
