I’ll have a side of sleep with that

July 3, 2009 at 6:51 am (Megan) ()

Megan is now 10 months old.  She has pretty much always been a good sleeper.  The term “good sleeper” is a little relative around our house because Evan was & still is a horrible sleeper, but still, I think she’s been a good.  I could put her down between 7 and 7:30pm & she’d wake up around 6:30 or as late as 7:30am.  I was happy with that.  Apparently Megan has decided she’s not.

The week of our vacation she didn’t sleep good, which I figured because she was in a pack-in-play & a strange room.  I was thinking I’d give it about a week & we’d get back to our good little schedule.  Well I was right, about a week later she got in a schedule – unfortunately it was just a little earlier.  She’d go done at the same time, but would wake up at 6am on the dot.  

This week however, totally different story.  The little baby that I never heard a peep out of during the night is now waking up multiple times!  Tuesday night she woke up at 5am, Wednesday night at 4am, and now last night at 3am.  We were up from 3 to 4am.  Then her brother (who doesn’t want to miss out on anything that happens at night), woke up at 4:30am.  Megan was up again & for good at 6:05am. 

Which leaves me wondering what’s happened to my good little sleeper & is she coming back??  Is this part of the whole separation anxiety thing?? Does she really want to be with me that bad?  I’m not that fun – honestly.  And especially at 4am in the morning!!

    I remember those days. Could be teething? Or the seperation anxiety that you mentioned. I hope the good sleep comes back soon!

    A lot of changes going on a 10 months and things can go out of whack all of a sudden. What to do and where do you start? That’s what hard. Familysleep.com addresses this very issue, check it out and good luck!

    I would think she’s just hungrier than she used to be. The teething may have something to do with it too. Have you tried to see if she’ll go back to sleep on her own? I’m sure you have.
