I thought we would be lucky and avoid the dreaded 4 month sleep regression since we went through one around 2.5 months, but not so much.

Our LOs sleep cycles/patterns start changing and mimicking ours (as in adults). Instead if taking 10-15 minutes for them to get into a deep sleep...it now starts taking them 45 minutes.

Madeline took 3 hours to go to sleep last night.....she would fall asleep, wake up wanting to play, and repeat 10x. Then, she got up at 4am for a bottle. She was STTN for 8-10 hours consistently (with the exception of her 2.5 month regression).

I'm praying this doesn't last too long. But, it can last weeks-months. We shall see.

Anyone else dealing with this?

Emily's sleep patterns were pretty normal until last night. She would fall asleep for like a minute then wake up, wail, throw her arms and legs up, then repeat. This went on for well over an hour and it was really frustrating. I hope it's not a sign of things to come...

Yes, she's started throwing her legs up viscously and dropping them...lol. Hope yours is just a fluke.

It started out a few days ago with taking an hour to get to sleep, then waking at 4am, but she put herself back to sleep after stirring.

Not so much now....

4am is when Emily wakes up too, but she's been doing that since the beginning so that's nothing new. I wish she would put herself back to sleep but usually she starts crying to eat so I sleep nurse her and she goes back to sleep. I notice when she's growing through a growth spurt, she'll also wake up at 12am, 2am and 6am. Those are fun times!

Not me!!

Don't be jealous. Ava has been sleeping like that since day 1. If she has a 4 month regression I don't know how it can get worse.

We're in a major four-month regression or a growth spurt or teething or all three combined! Jackson has never been one to sleep for long periods of time, but it's to the point of ridiculousness lately. Seriously, sometimes he's awake in 30 minutes after a middle-of-the-night feeding.

Totally not fun. The ped suggested today that it cooed also be due to not being on solids or cereal yet, but we have to wait until 6 months anyway bc of M's stomach issues. Ugh.

Us too. It started last night. She went to bed at midnight and was up every 3 hours to nurse.
