7 Month old not sleeping through the night, wakes up constantly

Posted by Peter on June 02, 2000 at 10:31:12:

I have a 7 month old Daughter who used to sleep pretty much through the night up until about a month or two ago. She is teething but I am fairly confident that it is not the teething that is waking her up at night. We have tried feeding her solids such as cereal to get her to sleep longer but it does not seem to work. Right now she does not get tired untill about 10 or 10:30 at night. At this point we lay her down when she seems a bit tired and rubs her eyes and pat her for about 20-30 minutes untill she is asleep. She will wake up normally around 2, and my fiancee will nurse her back to sleep. Somtimes after this we try to put her down again in her bed but she willl just cry untill we bring her back to our bed. She will then proceed to wake up two more times untill around 7 when she is fed once more and then sleeps until 9 or so. We have thought about using the Ferber method but have been unsure whether it is what we really want to do. Does anyone have any suggestions about what we might be able to do? Thanks.
