Sleeping advice greatly appreciated!

Wondering if any mums have some advice re sleeping through the night. Maggie is just 6 months and after going to bed at 7, wakes for night time feeds every 4 hours. Having read alot! of info on the net I am totally confused as to whether she needs these breast feeds or if she has just got into a habbit? Have just started weaning which may make a difference (wishful thinking??)
Thanks so much for ANY thoughts/ experience you could share.

Hello everyone!

Thought I better add a little something while I have this rare opportunity.
I really enjoyed taking part in mothers uncovered. I find it gets boring at mother and baby groups where we dont seem to get past "how old is he?" and "how does she sleep?". Good to know we all have the same worries and questions.
Abigail is as busy as ever, She has been walking round furniture all afternoon and I have a feeling she will be off on her own very soon.
Hope everyone is well and happy! Karyn & Abigail xxx

Calling all Mums.
Sorry for short notice...
There will be a few of us Mum's meeting at Queens Park for baby boogie etc tomorrow ( Friday 15Th ). @ about 11am.
If it's raining, there's a nice cafe nearby at the bottom of Queens Park Rd (where it becomes Egremont Place)- I think it might be called House.
Come join us, even if its just for Pancakes with golden syrup!
See you all there!
Love Heidi and Sophie. x

Hi everyone

Hi everyone. I've enjoyed being part of the Mothers Uncovered Project and especially the honesty of all the mothers. It was reassuring to hear how many different approaches to mothering there are, and that we can be supportive of each others' choices. It can be a bit lonely out there sometimes! Hope everyone is doing well.

I'm finding this new phase both amazing, exciting and quite challenging as Jude becomes more and more mobile ... I've just spent the past 3 1/2 hours trying to get him to stay asleep ...even though he is oh so tired, he keeps waking himself up by crawling backwards and standing up! Aah bless him.

I have to show you this pic.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have had so much trouble with getting my little one to sleep any more than an hour to 1.5 hours at any one time. Especially during the night. which I found very tiring and emotional at times.
4.5 hours !!!
Yippee... She has not done it since but this is such a mile stone for us I had to share it with all of you.
see you all soon.
Love Heidi and Sophie X

More Park Life....

Calling the Hangleton massive.......
It's been suggested Queen's Park should be the location on Fri am as they have the summer activities day there on Friday- baby boogie, play tent etc. If it's raining, there's a nice cafe nearby at the bottom of Queens Park Rd (where it becomes Egremont Place)- I think it might be called House. I'll be in one of those 2 places from about 11.00.
