  • Oh dear, I dont know what to suggest hun? I do remember that around 7 months Eoin drank alot less milk and really went for food instead, with snacks too. Maybe she needs more grub? Or its a growth spurt? However teething can turn them into monsters! SORRY i havnt been any help but I hope it gets better for you xxx
  • Oh babe - I dont have any advice for you as Im still getting up with Tyler, just wanted to say your not alone xx xx
  • Awh hun, having no sleep sucks!! I've had a rotten couple of nights as Millie's not been well so I can sympathsie. This is Barney's routine which works pretty well for us

    7-7.30ish Wakes up, bfed
    8.30 Breakfast
    9-9.30 Goes down for nap, has about an hour
    11.00 bfeed
    12.30 lunch
    1.00 nap, about and hour again
    3.00 bfeed
    4.00 nap, about 45 mins normally
    5.00 tea
    6.30 bath
    7.00 bfeed and then bed
    10.30 dream feed

    He normally wakes about 5 for a feed but I only started giving him tea yesterday so I am hoping he will drop this soon. Don't know if that's any help, got to shoot as we are going out!!
