How is she this morning Shaz? I would say if she normally sleeps really well but had one bad night, then maybe she is poorly. Does she have any fever? Is she feeling hot on her chest or back (not her forehead)? Do you have a thermometer?

There could be 101 reasons Shaz - Flo has recently done the same sort of thing she hated being put down during the day and was so tired she ended up sleeping from 5pm till 10am one night (she had a few feeds inbetween :D) I put it down to seperation anxiety everytime I walked away she went beserk - she seems to be better now though.

Hope it's just that and she isn't poorly xx

Can I just ask why you are waking her for a feed at midnight? Is she grizzling for it?

I would agree that 1-5 nights is classed as an unsettled period, whereas if it had been going on for 7 nights or longer it could be a sleep issue. Babies brains and bodies are still going through massive developments in the 1st year and can cause the odd unsettled night, whether that be for teething, growth, brain development or even 'just because'. I found an overstimulated or overtired baby is best left to settle on their own in a very dimly lit, quiet bedroom. They may cry a little bit at first but they will usually settle themselves relatively quickly.

Hope you have a better night tonight, its never easy, but they do usually get back into their usual pattern soon after.

hi all
thanks for advice

i think it was cos we went into town and only had a small nap while out and not much else then was too tired at bedtime
wouldnt let me lay her down at all but was fine healthwise

i finally had to give in and take her down and she finally slept in her pram with me rocking it then fed and then slept as usual afterwards

had normal routine today and she went to bed perfect

i usual feed her around midnight as she wakes for a feed and then me and dh get a good sleep and he gets up to do the breakfast for her
it works well and we feel refreshed

thanks again though ladies

That was what I was wondering. Glad it seems to have sorted itself out, they're little tinkers aren't they!
