Hi there, I've been a member of Just Mommies for a while but have never visited this board before. My name is Courtney, I have a daughter who was born March 26, 2011. She was a great sleeper....at first. For the past, I don't even know how long, she hasn't been sleeping through the night!! She wakes up at least once or more a night about 5-6 nights a week, she cries and cries. If we get her up, she's completely fine. I dont' understand, I always blame it on teething but i'm beginning to think that's just not it. She goes to the Dr. in a couple weeks, I'm going to ask him about it as well. It's just so strange, she was such a great sleeper, now all of the sudden in the past 6-8 months, she wakes up several times a night. My husband brought her in our room last night, he ended up sleeping on the floor, she slept in bed with me and slept the WHOLE rest of the night....??? I rarely go in there and get her out of bed, when I look at her on the monitor she's almost always just laying there on her belly crying, most of the time she doesn't even lift her head? Anyone else having the same problem?
I've noticed that when my children have issues with teething that they can go on for weeks or months before the teeth show up. Case in point, DD1 had a 3 month food strike which resolved when her molars showed up.
I have a 22 month old who has never had a night without waking up at least twice. She has had some long stretches in there esp. in the early night but even then I dont think she manages the 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep to qualify as STTN. I would lean towards that what your daughter is going through is normal. There is something going on whether physical or mental which causes her to need you more during the night. One thing I learned for my first that there was really no reason to stress over sleep regressions because they always resolve themselves in the end. I saved myself a lot of trouble by just waiting them out rather than stressing about fixing a problem.

My children, other than one, haven't been all night sleepers. So at this age I just go in when they wake up, tell them it is still sleepy time, lay them down, pat their belly/back depending on how they lay down. But them in the wee hours of the morning when Zane wakes up (born March 11, 2011) I bring him into bed with me.
I hope you can to this PR more often! We'd love to get to know you.
