Background: My LO is just over 6 months old and been eating solids for over a week. We are on the other side of the 3-2 nap transition and she naps pretty well most of the time. She seems to be on the tail end of a growth spurt and has been more irritable during the day than her norm. She has been waking a bit early 630-645 AM (chatting contentedly)...
Question: why might my LO be awake (chatting, cooing, content) for over an hour with no end in sight in the middle of the night? She has had these short "cot parties" in the past but never longer than 30 min and she always goes back to sleep. After all of us being awake for 90 min I resorted to nursing to sleep.
