Pediatrics/baby and sleeping


my daughter was a good quiet baby, the besy baby ever! such a good sleeper and all from the day i had her until about a month ago, she is now 8 months old 9 the 30th, she naps once throughout the day for maybe an hour sometimes 2, at night i put her down around 10 she sleeps till about 12 and doesnt wanna go back to bed until about 4ish same time everynight! i lay her down she cries i let her cry but she screams so i fix her bottle and she screams again i let her go a few mins but she does it again, so basically she wake sup in the middle of the night and never did before and gives me a hard time going to bed and she never did before, idk what to do is there any natural medicine or anything i can give her or what because its frustrating!

there are few causes for this
1. constipation
2.night terrors
4. colic
5. natural

considering first four causes not there.. the therapy for this is giving a fat rich feed late night before sleep and introduce soft toys that can give baby some comfort in sleeping.This can be tried only if her milestones growth and development is normal for age at present.
A story telling or a lullaby song may help.
