Q.

Night Waking

Hi Doc

My baby girl is 5 months old - she weighs 7.2kg and is 70.5cm tall!! She has 7 bottles a day of s26 gold formula - she only drinks 125ml at a time. She used to wake up twice a night! The last couple of days she has been waking up every hour and i just don' t know what could be going on. she isn' t ill, not cold - i am worried that she may be hungry??? Do you think i should try start here on solids? Am feeling a bit desperate and sleep deprived - your opinion would really be appreciated

Thank you

The most likely reason for your baby's change in sleep pattern is teething. She is doing well and should really not be hungry on her current feeding schedule.
