Ok I've just found this thread, sounds like the one I have just posted! OP please tell me it passed quickly! My nearly nine month old DS has decided that sleep is NOT a fun pastime.

Sorry, not yet
He stopped the day time catnapping though, I reckon it's cos his nights are so bad that he has to catch up on sleep somewhere. But he has still been up every hour just like he used to when he regressed at around 4 months - I was exhausted!
I've tried everything and still have no clue why so I just gave up and went with the flow. Last night was a slight improvement, he woke every 2 hours instead of one haha! Hopefully it's on the up and up from here.

Oh no, not the answer I was hoping for. Poor you! Poor me... DS is getting worse, awake every two hours over night. He's just learnt to pull himself up to standing so I think as soon as he wakes he thinks 'Oooh awesome, I'll do my new trick'. V worried about going to work in three weeks! Hope your nights improve OP.

it is a phase trust me... 8-10/12mths is a big developmental growth for babies and their little brains whizz so fast when they sleep that when their sleep cycle changes - THEY HAVE TO try out what they were thinking.
its exhausting but it does pass. I would just suggest you co-sleep so that its easier to resettle. We co-slept 8-13mths. now at 18mths she is sleeping just fine in her cot.

Funny enough I would have thought he'd start sleeping horribly at 7 months when he started crawling and standing but it seems cruising is what REALLY gets him excited. Just last night he was wizzing around the house until nearly 9pm with his little walker thing. Youd think that would poop him out enough to have a good nights sleep but nooooo.
Oh well, only a couple more months to go apparently.
ETA: I LOVE your avatar babaymay! haha

Ahhh well. Looks like I'll suck it up for a few more months! Yep, he's in our bed a fair bit of the night.
Re avatar - hehe I still sing it in my head when I'm on BH!
