Hey everyone, So I want to preface this with, I know I'm lucky, I'm not complaining so please no rude comments.
My DD has been going to bed usually around 7 or 730, never any later. She used to get up a few times a night then it was anywhere from 3-5, so I started the dream feed but it didn't seem to make any difference.
However, the last 2 weeks or so she gets up at 530 and it is killing me!
she'll usually go the entire night 7-530, but sometimes she'll get up at 330 or 4 and still wake up at 530. If its her only wake up I feed her then, but if I had just fed her at 330 then Ill just rock her back to sleep. The problem is, she rarely goes back down and if she does she's usually up by 6. I just don't get it because she used to sleep until 730ish and I always heard you should put them down 12 hours before you want them up for the day so I thought I was doing good with the 7 oclock bedtime. Its just hard because that is literally the only time during the day I could get a minute to myself bc she is a terrible napper.
Do you guys think I should bypass the feeding at that time and just try to sooth her back to sleep. I just feel like she is genuinely hungry considering she hasn't eaten most nights since 7. Thanks in advance!
