7 month old still wakes?!

I have no idea what to do...
Brai started sleeping through the night when she was quite young, until she got ill and started waking for a feed once. Then she stopped needing a feed but continued waking out of habit- I just put her dummy back in and she fell asleep.
Now, she wakes up several times a night and wont sleep unless I give her a bottle. She goes to bed at 8/9 and wakes up between 6:30-7:30.
This has literally only been happening for a few days and I'm stressing out already. I'm anaemic, meaning I feel pretty tired a lot of the time anyway, and now I'm getting next to no sleep- last night she went to bed at 9:30 and so did I.. She then woke up at 12:30-1:30, 2:30-3:00, 3:20-3:35, 4:30-5:30 and finally got up at 7:00.
Her dad wont take her on his own at night, and we share a room at his house so she wakes me up anyway.
My nan has her twice a week but I use them days to do work and I still have to get up at 7:00 for school in the morning.

How can I get her to sleep through the night? I can't keep doing this every night :( xx

  • Welcome to parenthood babe. Riley didnt start sleeping through the night until he was 10/11 months old and even now he doesnt always. Is she teething? sometimes that can be a problem, or cold? It's been pretty cold past few nights. x

  • I just don't understand how she was sleeping through the night and all of a sudden she's waking up several times and having 2 bottles!?
    She's not teething, my room's always warm as it has the water heater in it :/ x
