My 13.5mo gal is still waking up twice a night to drink!! Anyone facing same situation? She used to drop off to once a night but this past week she has been waking up twice a day.. so many babies have slept through the bight but mine is still waking up like a newborn to drink :( I do give her dinner and a little snack and milk before bedtime.. When she wakes up at night she can finish a bottle of 135ml! I thought maybe she is just thirsty but it seems like she is hungry or is she just drinking out of habit? What should I do?
It could be her comfort. There is nothing wrong with it. It's normal dear. Be patient. my boy used to wake up thrice a night at that age.
hmm depends on the childs. as I have 2 boys . 1 really super milk king . always want milk . even in the middle of the night will wake up for milk till the age of 2 plus or 3year old still the same . maybe it a habit or the milk urge . but my 2nd child last feed 11 +pm . he will sleep thru the night till like 6 am then wake up .i did try to wake him up but he just refuse . but as long if they wan milk . i will still prepare and let them drink even during the night . cos i believe my kids benefits all the nutrition from the milk they are drinking . ☺Read more
Hmm my gal sleeps around 10 and wakes up once around 3-4 to drink. But sometimes she will wake up at 2 and then 5am again to drink. She is a small eater in the day and rejects food even if I give her more.guess she is one of those babies take small quantity but many meals sighRead more
Has ur child sleep thru the night before or at least for a 5hr stretch? My 11m boy was for a these few wks then cny really sleep 6+hr but then last few night been waking almost every hr or every other hr. Could it be a growth spurt or a fussy wk?Read more
Mine is a milk Monster who nv reject any milk given to him. He sstn on most days but sometimes will wake up to drink. But I know that for him he has associated milk =sleep ... thus when he woke up, w/o milk he finds it difficult to self soothe back to slp thus needing milk for helpRead more
My 7 and a half months old boy is big size. He was having twice in e middle of e nite from newborn to almost 6 months old. After tat, he dropped to once in e middle of e nite. Few days ago, i realized he did not wanna drink milk anymore cos when i woke up in e middle of e nite to feed, he oni suck a few mouths & refused to drink! Happened for a 2 consecutive nites! Wasted e milk! So i stopped feeding him since he didnt make any noise at all. Sleeping thru e nite now. I hv many frenz who says tat their baby started slping thru e nite earlier. I oso heard tat there are babies who still need nite feedings after 18 months old. I was actually wondering when will my baby slp thru e nite and well! It really depends on baby. Hopefully yours will slp thru e nite soon! Jiayou!!Read more
Really depends on the child. My elder was a milk monster. He would drink 12oz before bed time. One way is increase the dinner portion. 1-2hrs before bed, give another snack time then milk before bed.Read more
Depends on the child. Cause my no1 & no2 is different. If ur girl has big appetite not much you can do. The fact that she can finish the bottle means she hungry.
- My baby have been waking up in the middle of the night crying. At first i thought she's hungry cos she cries really hard but after doing her milk she just rejects it. It happens at like 4plus every night these few days. I gave her gripe water and massage her every night before she goes to bed so i rule out colic. She will be 5 months nxt week. What could be the reason?
- I need some advice. My baby is turning 3 months in a couple of days time. for the past few days she has been sleeping though the night and not waking up to drink. even if she wakes up, she didn't cry for milk and goes back to sleep after some patting. she goes on without drinking for up to 10 hours. is that OK? throughout the day she drinks a total of 700ml. I am so worried that she will be dehydrated or gets really hungry. should i just feed her even if she didn't cry for milk at night? by the way dream feeding doesn't work on her as she gets really upset when we try to give her milk when she is not fully awake. she is on total breast milk.
- Ariana Aaleeyah Binte Arif Born on 29 September 2020, at 3.5KG Our first baby princess ❤️ On 28 September at 645AM, my waterbag was already leaking but I kept thinking it was just some sort of discharge or pee so I went back to sleep at 7AM. At 9AM, I woke up and gush of fluid came out non stop so I called Arif who was at work that morning to come home as I was already in labour. We took our time because I haven’t had any contractions at that moment. I took a long shower and we both made our way to the hospital at 11AM. Gynae came to see me at 12PM and told me I was not dilated yet but confirmed waterbag broke. She asked me if I would like to speed up the process(something like induced) or go home and wait for contractions otherwise to come back at 7AM the next day. At home, 430PM, I felt contractions but I was unsure if it was and assume it to be braxton hicks. It then got consistent and we rushed to the hospital at 645PM. 8PM, gynae came and mentioned that my contractions was consistent but I am still only 2CM dilated. Around 9PM, Contractions got stronger and I had fever of 38.7 which increased at 39.7! Contractions was 2 mins apart and I started groaning in pain. Laughing gas was given but I got too high and nauseous. I asked for epidural. 11PM, the epidural was given and I soon started relaxing and laughing but shivering badly because they had to put me in cold room, sponge me with cold towel and also the side effect of epi. They kept checking my cervix and I was only 3CM dilated then. Tried to sleep but kept woken up every hour to be sponged and given all sorts of medicine. By drip, by pill in the bum, by mouth. The nurses were so worried because mine and baby’s heartbeat was high. They told me that I might be going for emergency Csect. 7AM, gynae came and I was 4CM dilated but baby is still in high position. Best news for that day so far is my fever had dropped and baby’s heartbeat was normal. She predicted that I will be giving birth in the afternoon. 830AM, morning batch of nurses were then worried about our baby’s heartbeat that has gotten very low and my cervix is not progressing neither had the baby effaced. They told me to be prepared for emergency csect but the gynae will make the call. They kept checking me every 30 mins and kept changing my position, gave me oxygen mask to ensure baby’s heartbeat goes back to normal but nothing improved. 1115AM, her heartbeat stopped and gynae ordered for emergency csect on the spot. I was put to sleep. I woke up at around 1230PM to only know that my babygirl will be brought to NUH. She came out with no heartbeat and not breathing but was resuscitated by the PD. The nurses who operated me cried along with my husband after the operation and said that our baby is a miracle baby that was brought back to life! I cried and broke down so hard.. not only did I not get to have skin to skin to her. I haven’t got the chance to even see her or gave her first feeding. Ya Allah, my heart was in so much pain. So much that nothing else hurts more than not being able to hold her! Mama called me and even though she had bad asthma attack, she cried with me and kept telling me to calm down 😢 MIL and BIL came over to accompany me for a while because baby girl had to be rushed to KKH where it is better equipped to handle her. She needed to be put into NICU for couple of days. My husband needed to settle everything else. With no sleep at all he had to be rushed here snd there. Soon my elder sister came with her husband and 5th born despite being so sick and drained out. Ya Allah, I cant thank them all enough to come and give me all the support I needed. My heart was still aching but I felt better. So much better. Still in the ward, I kept hearing the newborn crying and each time I yearn for her. All I had is just her beautiful photo and her shivering like her mummy when I was in Delivery Suite. Her health is more important than anything else. I just can only pray that she will recover. What a fighter she is :’) Thank you Ariana sayang for battling to breathe again. Mummy loves you soooo much. I am so sorry you had to go through this. I want you in my arms so badly. I am thankful that you responded to your daddy when daddy told you that I love you so much baby girl. Please keep Ariana Aleeyah Binte Arif in your prayers. This means so much to me. Thank you so much :’)
