Re: Update/Teething/Night waking- 15 weeks
For whatever reason, at around 4 months many babies start to change their sleep habits. Babies that slept through begin to wake at night. Babies who used to wake 1-2 times a night suddenly start waking 5-6 times a night. Babies who never slept through suddenly start sleeping through- and then just as rapidly stop! I don't think anyone is sure why this happens- perhaps pre-teething, perhaps a developmental stage? But whatever the source of the sleep disruptions, they are real, common, and will not last forever. However, they may continue for a long time, so I suggest taking a look at Elizabeth Pantley's book "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" for a realistic look at infant sleep and some helpful tips on getting a baby to sleep longer and more independently.
