Sleep Problems - 20 month oldHello all. I am the mother of a happy 20 month old girl. Ever since she had her DPT shot at 15 weeks, she has not "slept thru" the night. Coincidence or otherwise I dont know.... I saw a homeopath who gave her Coffea 30c because another side issue is that she is not the type to get sleepy and go and snuggle with a toy or in the corner to show me she is ready for bed. She needs to be nursed to sleep.....a habit I have probably formed for her but if I left her in her bed alone, she would simply be completely alert, sit up and babble but shortly after whinge and then cry. Because she is so happy I am loathed to control cry. I am keen to stop feeding her....especially thru the night. Her general pattern is down at 7....15 to 25 mins of settling....up for a nurse at about 11 or 12....up again at 3:30 and then 5 then 6 and then up at 7. Ugh. I'm about to fall over. Annabel isnt really suffering though because she doesnt really wake during these periods because I nurse her soon after she wakes. Given that, in the last couple of days I have heard her wake and she has self settled. I tried Camomilla 30c 3-4 times a day and it resulted in only one night waking but I didnt know what I was doing so gave it too her for too long and reversed the good effects. What more can I tell you....she is bright, great fine motor skills, loves to dance, tall for age, heaps of trouble with teething, always has fever with vaccinations, laughs and smiles, can be impatient, loves water and company and animals. Please help. Any suggestions welcome. I guess I am used to the night waking but it is now severly impacting the relationship with my husband because I get tired and he gets grumpy and he resents the breastfeeding because he feels this is 100% responsible for Annabel's night waking. Kind regards.

Tell me one thing, do you get milk in breast even after feeding Annabel so many times? Do you feel week after nursing?
