    hi heartstringz. teething is just the teeth moving in the gums. a baby can be teething for many months without any sign of the teeth on the surface of the gums. if you think bub might be stressed, apply some bonjela to the gums, or give some panadol. a bub can be pulling at their ears, or with a temp or just biting, chewing toys, that sort of thing. marie

    I was just wondering about how you were going heartstringz! I think at this age it is unlikely he would be dropping a sleep, they tend to keep 2 sleeps until at least 12 months. Maybe he is a bit under stimulated, sometimes they just sleep a bit less occasionally, just when you think you've got things figured out they go and change things!
    I would just continue what you've been doing, maybe think about increasing awake time between sleep 1 and 2 to see if he might sleep longer.
    My bub has dropped his afternoon nap and is generally grumpy all afternoon, so I feel your pain!

    What time does bub wake in the morning? What time is the morning nap and then afternoon nap? Perhaps bub needs more awake time in between the 2 day naps?

    From memory bub isn't eating too well? A 7.5 month old not eating many solids could be hungry. This could disrupt sleep. If this is the case a GP/ MACH nurse might be able to help.

    No way in hell I would go 1 nap at 7.5 months old. If anything it would be a case of needing to tweak the existing day naps.

    Have you mastered going outside the home yet? At 7.5 months bub would probably thrive in a mothers group/pay group. Or a trip to the local library for babies story time.

    Mostly he wakes at 5.30 or 6am. His first sleep is around 8 or 8.30 - i wait till he yawns which works for us in terms of self settling. Much longer after a yawn & he wont go to sleep. Then he sleeps for around two hours then has approx 3 hours awake time (again going by the yawns). Usually put him down at 1 or 1.30

    I go out sometimes but still not driving & it never seems to stop raining at the moment & walking/public transport isnt much fun in the rain. I go to mums group when i can.

    At that age if bub is sleeping 12 hours per night bub probably only needs 2.5 hours sleep in the day, which is what bub is currently doing. Perhaps you need to just split up the day naps differently. Eg 8:30-9:30 then 12:30-2:00 Bed at 6:30pm.
