    It’s great to hear that your little one is feeling better and gradually extending the intervals between the nighttime feedings.

    It’s hard to say if it is a growth spurt. Typically, during a spurt, they might also demand more frequent or longer feedings during the day. Is this the case with your little one?

    It might be worth feeding her in a quieter room during the day to ensure she is having bigger feeds. This can sometimes help to reduce the need for overnight feeds.

    If you’re happy to I would wait until after you’re settled in the new house before implementing all of the strategies we’ve discussed. A house move can be stressful for everyone and adding this on top might be a little too much.

    Once you are settled in the new home, I would keep practising the pyramid for naps and bedtime, plus the other strategies. The goal is for her to learn to fall asleep independently, which would enable her to soothe herself back to sleep during the night if she’s not genuinely hungry. Mastery of this skill, however, requires patience and lots of practice.

    I hope this helps!
