Oh my goodness the past few nights around 11:00 pm have been terrible at my house. Christian normally goes to sleep around 9 and sleeps until 2 am which is nice but the last two nights he has gotten back up around 11:00 pm and won't go back to sleep. I usually go to sleep when he does so when he gets back up shortly after we've gone to bed I'm out of it. Last night he wanted to nurse and would fall asleep after about 10 minutes then when I went to put him down he would wake up screaming and crying until I picked him back up again. It was terrible. I thought I would never get him to go back to bed. Finally DH came into the room and he took him and turned on the closet light and put Christian's swing right in front of the closet so he could swing and look at the light. that finally calmed him down and he looked at the light until he went to sleep.

I'm not sure what has been up but I hope it's over soon. He is usually such an easy baby that it threw me off when he was being so difficult.

Oh man, I am not looking forward to those nights! I remember having to walk my daughter around the house patting her on the back until she would go back to sleep.... UGH! I hope it's just a phase he's going through and hope that it ends very soon for you!

Is he in a leap? I hope it is just a phase and he snaps out of it quickly! Addy had some nights like that and it was miserable for everyone

I think every baby has those phases. I hope Christian's is short. In fact, I hope it's already over.

I was going to ask about a leap also. Either way, I hope it's over and he gets back to a more normal. Clever of DH to think of the swing/light trick.

no not in a leap.

Last night we didn't have a bad hour. He went to bed at 9:00 and then was back up at 1:00, he ate and then went right back to sleep. Hopefully his witching hour is over. It was so hard.
