Q.

Little Sleep

My daughter will be 9months on 9th June, She still wakes up 3-5 times during the night and has 3 naps during the day lasting from 20-60min. She is a premature baby and was born at 32 weeks and weighed 1.440kg at birth. Is she sleeping enough and is there something i could do so she could wake up less during the night as I am a working mom?

Paediatrician

Something is causing your baby to wake up so often.Is she teething now? Two other possibilities are that she may be getting hungry as a result of her rapid growth or she may have a reflux problem.Try her on a formula that will make her feel more satisfied such as Lactogen2. If she is a restless sleeper then she may be refluxing. For this possibility it would be best for her to be seen by her paediatrician.

She is teething at the moment, she is currently on Nan>  I am a bit scared to try out other formula as she got sick when i initially put her on S26. When I am at home she is exclusively breastfed and refuses a bottle. So from the time i get home from work I breast feed her twice before she goes to sleep and i get home at approximately 18:30 and her bed time is any time after 8. should i still get her to her paediatrician?
