9 months Sleep Regression – or is this the lie we tell ourselves.
A sleep regression describes a period of time, when a baby who has been sleeping well suddenly starts waking up at night, and/or skipping naps (or waking up early from naps) for no apparent reason.
I don’t think it’s a sleep regression or growth spurt, my child is against sleeping and this mama has had it.
Everyone I talk to about this says- well he might be having a growth spurt or his teeth are coming (there is no new teeth I have been checking every day). How do other babies sleep through the night, is it magic?
The last two weeks was really hard,with HB working mornings. Little man has decided to have 3 hour parties in the middle night. He goes to bed at his normal time 8:30-9, and normally wakes up between 11-12. But lately he wakes up at 2am and refuses to go back to sleep until 5am. Seriously who does that! Am at a point where I want to spank him, just kidding- but come on.
Am fine with him waking up every 2-3hours,if that means I get to go back to bed in 15minutes. I am open to all suggestions, the tiredness is starting to catch up and we can’t have that.
I am trying to look at the bright side, He is so happy and full of energy – I wish he could share some of that energy.
