My almost 7-month-old DD has been starting her longest sleep as late as 6:30 am! In general, this longest sleep is now a little under eight hours. She is also taking three 'naps' at other times in the day, so I believe she has broken up this last nap from her sleep for the 'night' and they need to be consolidated. She also needs the boob almost every time she stirs during her long sleep.
So...where to begin changing her sleeping habits? That is, should I try to adjust her schedule first, or try getting her to nurse less first? DH and I have tried a bit to get her down using anything but nursing, and this has worked, but we've not yet made any headway getting her to settle without the boob when she partially wakes and needs resettling.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
