9.5 month old waking 3-5 times at night :(
« on: September 03, 2014, 03:03:18 am »
9.5 month old is waking several times a night...every 1.5-3 hours. He's teething and just learned to crawl but the NW's have been going on for 2 weeks or so despite Advil, Amber teething necklace, etc. This is his schedule...any ideas as to what's making this little man so unhappy at night?? :(

Wake 7 - nurse and breakfast
Nap 1- 9:15-10:40
Nurse at 11
Lunch at 11:45
Nap 2 - nurse and sleep 1:40-3:20
Nurse 4pm
Supper 5pm
6:30 - bath and bedtime routine
7pm nurse and bedtime

Then come all the varies. Typically the first one has been between 10 and 11:30 at some point. Then every 1.5-3hrs after that until wake up time.

Sounds like the dreaded 8-10 mth sleep regression ::) it's a doozy

First up I think if you adjust his routine a little he will sleep more soundly at night. If things then don't settle you may have to do some St.

His A times are very low, try pushing the first A out to 3 hrs and cap the nap at 1hr. Then 3 hrs min to the next nap and cap at 1.5hrs. Bt I'd give a good 3hrs30 mins. Has he had that routine for a long time?
