Ok, I'm trying really hard not to cry right now, because me and my boyfriend haven't slept properly for nearly 5 weeks.
I know she's still only little (20wks 2 days) but she was sleeping through from 10 weeks, being completely breast fed. I've now had to stop feeding her as it has been every two hours, on a good night, so completely formula fed now, though she'll go three hours or so between feeds during the day.
I've tried giving her food, cuddles, dummies, more milk, having her in bed with us, Calpol, teething stuff....everything. 😢 she wakes up screaming, so she's in her own room, she settles back down after a feed, but why is she feeding this much? Its so out if character. I've tried leaving her to cry it out, but it breaks my heart. The health visitor says I've just got to be tougher, but I'm really struggling.
Please, any suggestions on how I can reduce how many times she'll wake and feed would be great. 🙈 xxx
