The last two weeks my daughter has not been sleeping as well as she always had. We were blessed when it came to our newborn sleeping. After going through the first two months sleeping sporadically because of her feeding schedule she began sleeping through the night. She has slept in a pack-n-play bassinet next to our bed and we received the wonderful Owlet baby monitor that she wore every night. The only way I could sleep, by the way, was because of that wonderful monitor. New Mom anxiety… what can I say. Anyway, it has stumped us why Evelinn has decided to wake up every night once again. Why now? Well she’s been teething, growing, etc. We’ve tried a bottle before bed, AR Medicine, gas medicine… nothing has helped. Could it be a phase? Possibly. When reading about what I could possibly do to help out our baby girl sleep better again I came across sleep regression. Well it seems to be normal from 8 months to 10 months old. Who knew?! Not me. So this could be a phase and we hope it’s over soon. Now while it hasn’t been horrible and I know we are still very blessed it does make my husband and I a tad tired throughout the day.
Have any of you moms out there been through a sleep regression with your children OR found a reason they weren’t sleeping as they usually did? I would LOVE to hear your experiences.
