Ember has always been a good sleeper at night and now is sleeping 8-10 hours at night. Her bedtime was between 11-1230 so I've been working really hard to move that time up. I had been getting her down between 10/1030 so it was good progress. We are also trying to let her sleep in her crib. Well two nights ago she would not go to sleep. She just laid in her crib for 30 minutes then would stir and make noises so I went in there before she started to cry to soothe her and rinse repeat until 130. She slept until 445 and then I just brought her in my room to her swing where she slept until we woke her at 945. Last night I started bedtime around 830, like I had been and same thing until 1030 so I just figured I'd put her in the swing to get her to bed earlier. I need to get her to sleep earlier and I can worry about where she sleeps later, well all my normal getting to sleep tricks didn't work. She was up until 1230. She usually falls asleep right away in her swing. Then she was up at 145. I pulled her in bed with me and she is still sleeping at 730. Yesterday she didn't nap more than 3x and no longer than 30 minutes. I feared she would be cranky because she would be so tired but she was just laying there not wanting to sleep. She only would make noise every 20-30 minutes because her paci fell out so I would pop it back in her mouth and she would just lay there.
Is this a sleep regression? I just can't understand why she wouldn't go to sleep and stay asleep for a long time.
Parker has been having some bad nights recently too, but then again he has NEVER been a good sleeper anyways (oh how I wish he were). I haven't heard about sleep regressions, but anything is possible with how much these little ones change. Hoping it passes for both of us soon though!
Thank you Bokkechick for my beautiful siggy!

Maybe the change from the her original sleep area to the crib has just thrown her off a bit? I know Latham has started fighting sleep a bit, well not really fighting it but instead of being able to lay him down drowsy and him drift off he awakens and plays with his hands for thirty minutes then wants to wiggle.
