Personal Consultations: recent case Gina has solved

Katie, five and a half months, night time waking

I am writing to you in the hope that you can help. I am getting more and
more tired and have put off writing this in the hope that I could find a solution myself but unfortunately I have failed to do so.

My daughter Katie is five and a half months old and over the last few weeks has started waking several times in the night. We have been following the CLB routine successfully since week one. Although Katie hasn't slept through consistently, she has managed to sleep through after being resettled with either water or a cuddle. I really don't know what to do. I thought she might be hungry but the amount she feeds in the day seems good and when I try and offer more, she won't take it. Generally throughout the day she is a happy little girl with very few upsets.

I have run out of ideas and the more tired I am getting the less I can
seem to deal with the problem. I feel like it is now becoming a vicious
circle which is spiralling only downwards. Please help.
