    Default Sleeping issue!

    DD is 7 months and has never been a fantastic sleeper but has 9/10 self settled pretty well. We've never had to rock her or do anything much and she used to just happily go to bed (particularly at night). She'd also started consistently sleeping through the night for about a month. However something has changed in the last week or so. She cries and I mean full on crying if I put her in her cot. If she's not tired enough she rolls onto her belly like 300 times and grunts until we put her back and eventually cries when she's overtired. Or if I wait till she's more tired she just cries. If I stand there and leave her in the cot and sing or pat her she keeps crying. She usually stops crying if I pick her up but keeps crying when she is seriously overtired. The only way to get her to sleep is to rock or feed her to sleep and I keep waking her up when I put her down as my arm gets stuck! She has some teeth coming through but there are no other teething symptoms as such. Or I'm wondering if its separation anxiety but she doesn't seem bothered if I leave her with someone (she is in crèche at the gym almost every day). Is this a phase that other bubs have been through? Any ideas? I'm a bit scared about developing patterns here and preferred my self-settling baby

    Default Re: Sleeping issue!

    Hi i have just been through this.
    Ds is 8m and was sleeping through such a dream boy after being such a bad sleeper from birth. Then bam he went worse than ever.. Hated being put in cot as soon as i pick up he is quiet with closed eyes..as soon as he on put down again he is screaming! Also at night he is waking way more and just crying.

    The thing is he has a hot head and i cam feel a couple of teeth comin through so i put it down to teething and my health nurse said the same. Mane more symptoms of teething are going to pop up soon?
    I just give bonjella and panadol when he just won't stop s screaming and that has helped us get a few hours sleep.

    Its horrible but its slowly passing for us now.. After about 2 weeks of it..

    Default Sleeping issue!

    I have a 15month old cheeky bubba who no longer likes to sleep through the night.
    She used to, from week 12 to nine months she'd sleep through the night and then she started teething and just decided that sleeping through the night just wasn't her thing.
    We co-sleep, bed share and find that really helps her. When she does wake most of the time she just sits up, makes sure we're there and goes back to sleep.
    My advice would just be to go with the flow, all babies go through different stages for different reasons, thats what we find.
    Listen to your bubba and follow
    Your heart, you no best

    Chances are this won't be the last time she has sleep issues. That was the case with me anyway....just as DS got through one rough patch he would start another. There are just sooooooo many reasons they wake so I just always trust they are trying to tell us something and deal with it as it comes!
