For a while I thought we were dealing with the effects of a cold, but LO has started waking up anywhere between 1-3am and just wants to party the rest of his sleeptime. Last night in particular he woke up at 1am and screamed (with check-ins, diaper change, and soothing attempt) until 430, when I gave up and fed him, after which he went back to sleep until waketime. I know that is not the way to go (since he's been night weaned and I don't want to encourage new wakeups) but am not sure what to do in the meantime to get sleep.
I need to reread the section on 6-9mo olds in SleepEasy for a refresh, but just wanted to see... Anyone else going through this or have any experience/thoughts?
We haven't had issues at night but his naps have totally turned to sh*t. He's routinely waking at 45 min and has been for a month. It SUCKS.
Have you tried dropping the third nap? DD's naps are starting to get shorter and shorter, so I think I'm going to try dropping the third nap in the next few days.
I actually started the last two days! Yesterday his first nap was 45 min but second was 2.10. Today again first nap was 45 min and second was 1.5. I'm hoping that first one lengthens in time because he's exhausted with only a couple of hours in naps. It doesn't help matters that he only seems to do about 10.5 at night. I'm hoping maybe that'll lengthen too when we go to two naps?
I'm not sure what we're dealing with but it's not fun. Last night DS woke every single hour. And only took a 45 min nap this morning. We stopped doing Sleepeasy. It wasn't rift for our family so now I'm kind of at a loss of where to go from here. I hope you ladies have better luck!
I am another one in the situation where I don't know if we are dealing with a cold, teething, a regression or a combination of the 3. The past couple nights DD's sleep has been terrible. Normally she goes to bed at 630pm and wakes between 3 and 5 to eat and goes right bavk to bed until she wakes up around 7. The past few nights she has screamed when we put her in bed and she has been waking every 2 hours for no apparent reason (not hungry, diaper changes didn't work, tylenol didn't help, soothing/rocking didn't help). She has also started sitting up and pulling up in her crib when she doesn't want to sleep which gives me heart failure everytime I check the monitor and see her standing (even though the crib has been lowered).
I really hope that whatever this is it doesn't last long!
As far as naps go: she naps between 1.5-2 hours total and takes 2 naps, but she sleeps 12-13 hours at night (usually). She has been fighting her naps the past few days as well, though.
