Anyone else have a baby who isn't sleeping through the night yet? My son is 9 months old and still gets up once or twice a night regularly.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

If they were sleeping through the night prior to 9 mo. range, they are going through the separation anxiety and realize that you are not right by them now. I did the cry out method on my 3rd who is now 9 mos. she has been doing great the past 3 nights. People have a 90 minute cycle, which if you catch them at the right point you can lay them down and let me fall asleep (maybe cry it out). It takes time and they will try to test you again.

So glad I'm not the only one!! My son always gets up at least twice at night. The past week or so, it has been about every couple hours, and he shares a room with his sister, so I have to bolt into their room the second he wakes up or the whole house is awake. I'm seriously going crazy from lack of sleep! His newest thing is that he thinks he needs to be held to sleep. I took him to the dr. this morning only to be told that he is fine. Thought maybe he had an ear infection, but nope.

my almost 9 months old son also had that problem he still wakes up 2-3 times a night, i don't know if it is because I am still nursing him or he is just looking for comfort. It might also because my son is teething too. I am still not sure the reason, I had try couple of methods my doctor told me like giving him a bath and reading to him before he goes to sleep, but it doesn't seems to be working. I will continue doing these things and hopefully he can start sleeping through the night.

My son who is 8 1/2 months is getting up two or three times in the middle of the night. He started sleeping through the night at a month. This all started about 2 months ago. I've tried all kinds of things and nothing seems to work. Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

My 9 month old used to sleep through the night until he was 4 months old. I don't know what is wrong. Sometimes he wants to eat, sometimes just to be held. I think the teething is part of our problem. Can't really let him cry it out cuz he is in our room.

I've tried to not nurse my son in the middle of the night but he just screams louder and longer. If my husband tries rocking him it's usually worse! I feel rocking and nursing them back to sleep are both bad habits. Lately he'll wake up when I lay him back in his crib and cry again. He has been sick with two different colds and now has a double ear infection. I'm glad I didn't let him "cry it out" the other night as he was in pain! Sometimes there is something wrong! The only thing that would soothe him was to be nursed completely asleep. Usually when they're sick you take 50 steps backwards. I swear boys are also more persistent with nursing than girls!

My 8 1/2 month old has been getting up 5 times a night... comforting doens't work, letting him cry it out doesn't work (I let him go 10 min)....he won't take a pacifier, all he wants to do is nurse, nurse nurse.. and he has a good supper and a good betime snack that should more than fill him up...
Should I leth im cry it out longer than 10 minutes... i live in an apartment and would hate to have my neighbours at my door lol

Thanks for the helpful feedback on ideas that worked and other things to look into, like looking up Ferber and the Baby Whisperer on Amazon. I'm looking forward to starting a new method soon so all of us get the needed sleep!
Also, my opinion on those of you who I read are still nursing their 8 / 9 month olds during the night wakings....I feel they'll only continue to wake often when they now can comprehend that they'll get just that. It's kind of like a reward for waking up. In my case, I only nurse our daughter back to sleep if she won't settle by me just rocking her. It's now pretty rare that she needs a night feeding by me doing that. Last night she woke up 3 hours after putting her down which for some reason has become the norm and I just rocked her for 10 mins and placed her back in her crib and she rolled on her tummy, closed her eyes and stayed asleep! yea!! She then even stayed asleep all the rest of the night until 6:30 this morning. I didn't do anything different than the norm...just lucky last night I guess! I'll take it!! LOL I did give her a teething strip and last night was bath night, so those things I'm sure helped her relax. Let's hope for some better sleep for all of us new families soon! :)

Same thing here.. my 8 1/2 month year old slept through the night (10 hours) at 3 months old. At 4 months old he changed. Then he slept through the night (11 1/2 hours) for a week. Now he's up once or twice a night. We're not really into letting him cry it out but it's exhausting getting up to nurse him when I work full time as a teacher. My friend just recommended a book to me by the baby whisperer. She said there are a lot of topics in there besides sleeping and her ideas really make sense. I'm going to check into it on Amazon.

My son was sleeping well through the night until about 6 months. I'd read that babies can wake up due to hunger- not from their mother having an inadequate milk supply, but from needing solids also. We started giving him solid food, and he began sleeping again. Then at about 7 months, he started teething. He's been waking up a lot earlier than usual, and not sleeping as soundly. Giving him motrin and anbesol (gel for his gums) before bed has made a big difference.

Hiya



Betha is down by 6 nearly every night. She could wake every hour or 2 before we used the ferber method, best case scenario we got abour 4 or 5 hours from her. Every time we got close something would upset her - teething, a cold, me going back to work in november was a biggie... but touch wood all going well at the mo... She was teething last week but we gave her calpol after her bath at 5, and when she got upset through the night we just gave her another wee spoonful. The last time, pre ferber, she teethed - i was up nursing her several times to pacify her (as well as calpol)



I know every baby is different - but i am so impressed with this method, we got results in the 1st night (she cried for 35 mins with us in to her 3 times to soothe - but not pick up - and she fell asleep after the 3rd visit into her room) it was upsetting leaving her in her cot to cry and walk out again - but i was at the end of my tether and working full time, i just had to keep focussed on the end game...



best of luck - just message me again if you have any questions, really happy to help!

Yes my little boy is 8 months and 3 weeks and doesn't sleep all night. I think he has slept through the night maybe 4 times. He still wants to eat every 3 -5 hrs.

I looked up a book on the "ferber" method on Amazon.com. You just type in "the ferber method" and it comes up. For those of you that want to try it, like me, who re desperate for sleep and want your baby to be able to rest at night. I am going to read it and try it and pray it works!

thank you Alex. Maybe I need to buckle down and try this. I have done "crying it out" but maybe not the exact way Dr. Ferber suggests. I am desperate and whatever is safe and ok for baby I am willing to try!

hi there. Betha had never slept through the night until just before xmas, and this was the result of us following Ferbers 'controlled crying' technique. we were happy with this approach as you only leave your baby alone for small intervals at the beginning and increase it over 5 nights. there is also the option of starting with smaller intervals if you would prefer but Ferber says it might take longer to get the result this way...



we have now had 4 nights of 12 hours+ sleep with no feeds or crying, and the other nights have been about 10 hours before she has woken a wee bit upset but we have either left her grumbling and she has dropped off, or we have went in after the 20 min wait (or whatever interval) and changed her nappy etc. b



i am sooo happy - i thought i was going insane with the lack of sleep - and Betha is in such a better mood as well

ps - i breastfeed betha and she was used to getting nursed about 3-4 times a night when i started this.... but deep down i knew she wasnt hungry, she eats 3 good meals a day and has formula 3 times (when i am at work) and i also BF her morning and before bed... so she was getting more milk that my health visitor said she needed a day and her solids which she is devouring....

My son is 8 months old and has never slept "through the night"! He goes to bed around 8pm and will sleep until about 11pm then wake to nurse (i breastfeed primarily). I Nurse him then put him back down and it seems after that he is up every hour to two hours!!! It has been this way as long as i can remember. I spend my days so tired and sluggish and napping when i can. I do stay at home, but I still have things to get done, errands, i babysit and have a sschool aged child to take care of after school along with two other boys. I only ever feel good for a short portion of the day. I know it will get better one day, I just get confused when i hear mom's say their babies sleep all night. I wonder what I am doing wrong? I have often wondered if it is due to nursing..maybe he is hungry? I try the crying it out method and that works for naps and for getting him to go to sleep...but when it is 1, 2 and 3 am and i am exhausted, I fail at letting him cry it out and bring him back to bed with me. I have to get some sleep! My friends swear the ferber method (crying it out) works wonders, but it hasn't really worked for my son. I have tried it and he still cries every night. Also, if I hear that babies our kids age should not need to feed at night..but I truly feel he is hungry and I wonder and if he is hungry I cannot let my son go with a hungry belly. If he is nursed, could he be more hungry? It is so confusing...and i'm so ready to sleep more like all of you. I don't know how i would function if i had to go to work. But, like i said i do still "work" at home and I feel so useless during the day. I guess one day they will sleep ;)

Ellie does not sleep through the night howvever my ped. offers a ten one rule that worked well with my son. Since we have a two bedroom it is difficult to have her scream it out for ten minutes, and hold her for a minute then let her fuss again for ten and just be there for for a minute and the last ten is horrible, then I get ehr up and check the diaper and nurse. Last night was not bad, she goes to bed around 7:30 ish and gets up around 11:30 or 12 to nurse I am usually up, so no big deal, but then again at 3 and up at 5:30 or 6 again to nurse. Ugh... I have tried different nursing patterns offering a cup and cereal right before bed. She does not like the cup and primarly nurses at night. I really could go for a good night sleep, as I am certain you would love one too.

My daughter fusses at least once every night usually I have to go and change her bum and then lay her back down for more sleep. My son who is now almost 9 did not sleep through the night until he was 4 years old so it really depends on each child......I don't take my daughter out of her playpen which is where she sleeps I just change her in there that way she knows that once she has been put to bed she is in bed if she gets up and doesn't want to sleep she just pushes the button on her frog and it sings her back to sleep

Quoting Qualla:

at least he's only getting up once or twice my 8 month old son gets up about 3/4 times & cries in his sleep.....is that normal?



I am not sure if it is normal, but you are not alone, mine cries a little at night when he wakes and I breast feed him... sometimes he'll go back to sleep with a little pat or his binky. And then again I think my lil man does most of his eating n the night! So I am not sure why he cries, I was thinking maybe its teething, or nightmares... not sure.

SO! Although I agree it is quite reassuring that so many others are having the same issue at this age (8-1/2 months) - used to sleep thru night no problem now the past 2 months waking several times most nights and needing to be comforted back to sleep -- Going thru teething and has learned to crawl, stand and cruise -- It is still extremely frustrating and so far I've only seen 2 replies posted that mention what anyone has been able to do about this. :( My husband does not like the idea of letting her cry for more than 5 minutes...yet I'm most often the one who has to keep going in there to sooth her. We both work and need some kind of coherence during the day - even tho I work from home, I still have set hours and must juggle being a Mom and a good employee. I think the solution is to have to break her out of the habit of being rocked to complete sleep (which doesn't work a lot now either, as she wakes up as soon as putting her in her crib) and instead teaching her to go to sleep on her own. But HOW!!?? If anyone has had any successful methods, please - PLEASE for the sake of my sanity - share what has worked! Thanks!!

my 8 1/2 month old is a lovely sunny baby, but has never sle[pt through, and wakes at around 5 30 am... aaargh!!! she wakes about once or twice thru the night, usually just to have her dummy put back in, I am trying to phase out her "dream feed" in the hope that this will help, I really dont think she needs it, as she is never that hungry in the mornings...

thank god for this!was startin to think i was the only one!jack is 9 months today and we had 4 weeks of sleeping through when he was 8 weeks till 12 weeks but since then he has woken up every night at least once for a bottle and he tends to drink it all. he is teethin as well at the moment which doesnt help as he still hasnt had his any teeth cut through. i never had this problem with my eldest he slept through from 6 weeks and we're not doin anythin different a friend of mine suggested to give him water at night rather than give him milk but not sure whether now that he's eating 3 meals a day to let him have normal ful fat milk and see whether that helps just at complete loss - but this has cheered me up no end as really started to think was just me :) wouldnt mind but jack is very laid back in the day and happy its only at nnight he'll cry its really bizarre

I just wanted to say I am so sorry for all of you that have babies not sleeping through the night. I had no idea how lucky I was. My daughter started sleeping 8 hours at 3 months, and now sleeps 11 hours every night. If any of this might help: I stopped rocking my daughter to sleep. I just put her down. We ditched the pacifier at 3 months, so she doesn't wake up in the night trying to get that back in her mouth. (Or rather she ditched it when she pulled it out and never wanted it again). And I also play the same music every time she sleeps, including naps. It's a cd of lullabies that I put on an ipod. Now, I can even put that music on in the car when she gets tired and fussy and because she associates it with sleeping, she calms down and falls asleep. I also don't go in her room if she wakes up in the night. She's never had to "cry it out", but she went through a few episodes of whining for 10-15 minutes before falling back to sleep. Now, if she wakes in the night, she talks or sings to herself, scoots around her crib, plays... etc, but she knows it's bedtime and doesn't whine or cry.

Mine shares a room with her 3 year old sister so I haven't been able to let her cry it out at night. But I was rocking her to sleep and I just stopped doing it. I put her in the crib and she stands up about ten minutes crying. I go back in lay her down and she's been sleeping all night for two nights now. The older one sleeps rock solid so if the baby cries I'm going to let her for a little bit. It's definately taking longer this time.

Ohhh thank goodness we are not alone... I thought my son was the only one (well out of my friends) not sleeping thru the night. He wakes up about 3 times during the night (hes 9 months old) and I try rocking him in my arms instead of nursing, but he cries louder. He seems like he wants to eat throughout the night. This could be so, he doesn't seem to eat very much during the day, so I think he is getting his feedings at night. Any suggestions? Good luck everyone... one day, one day! LOL

Mine does too. I think he's teething again right now because he was only getting up once a night, very early in the morning and then going back to sleep. But he's never really slept through. It's exhausting I know but they'll sleep through eventually.

UGH.. im glad im not the only one! I have almost 9 month old twins. one of them loves his sleep! He will sleep from 9:30pm to around 10am. very rarely do I hear from him between those hours! The other one on the other hand seems to get up every hour! She climbs up and hangs on to the rail of her crib and crys til I get there, I tuck her back in or sometimes give her, her bottle and shes back to sleep! I need to figure out how to get her to sleep all night! any ideas? and good luck to all you other parents out there with tricky babies and night owls :)

Wow so glad to know I am not the only one having this problem. My little girl who is almost 9 months used to sleep through the night but like everyone else has said for about the past month has been getting up about 2-3 times a night. She just wants to be cuddled and rocked back to sleep. Good luck to everyone getting through this phase!! I know we could all use the sleep :-D

My almost 9mo old use to sleep through the night but all of the sudden (in the last month in a half) he has been waking up 3 or 4 times a night, either crying and wanting to be held and rocked or just what i call sleep crawling, where he crawls around the bed and keeps snuggling up against me until he falls asleep again. it's so strange, but i 've read that at this age babies are going through 2 things 1.seperation anxiety, so he could just wan treassurance that your there and 2.they are learnig a lot of new things and sometimes get up to practice them...hopefully we all et our sleep back soon :)

Hi, my 9 month old is not sleeping through the night too. And over the last week or so weve made it so that she has one long sleep during the day and a possible one hour nap depending on how grissly she gets in the morning if she wakes up about 7 but she'll only sleep for an hour or so then around 11:30 is lunch shell go to bed at 12 and get up about 4, dinners at about 6 then bath is at 7-7:30 and bed at 8. But she is also teething atm. So it's understandable. But that is her general routine and it seems to be starting to work. Good luck and hope that you get some sleep :)

Yes, sounds familiar. I have a 9 month old daughter and ever since she was born I didn’t have a gooooood night sleep because she wakes up sometimes twice at night sometime more. The other night she woke up at 2A.M and got confused with her hours, I had to stay with her till 5A.M! Then on 6A.M I woke up to go to work :(…

I have the same problem- my 9 month old girl wakes up 2-4 times per night and wants to nurse. Driving me crazy!

Also to get her to sleep at night (and naptime) is a disaster! She used to fall asleep with her Winnie the pooh story (iPod) but now she will crawl around, sit up continously and take 45 minutes to fall asleep. And that is on my bed with me laying next to her.

If I put her in the crib she plays for a few minutes and then screams like nothing else.

Any advice on how I can get my 9 month old to sleep through the night?

She also gets up between 5 and 6 every day. My husband will not get up at night or in the morning so it's all up to me and I am finding myself getting frustrated to the point of yelling at her :(

My 9 month old son is not sleeping through the night as of recently. He's been sleeping through the night since he was about 4 weeks and it's been about 2 months now that he has been waking up every night. I asked the doctor about it at his 9 month check up and he said babies go through different sleeping patterns and that he's teething right now. He said if my son can get back to sleep right away( with little to do on my behalf) then it will eventually stop. He said I can try and let him cry it out or just do what I've been doing which is rocking with him in his chair till he falls asleep again. It feels like it's been forever with him not sleeping through the night again and very tiring but I have hope that it is just a stage and he will start sleeping through the night again.

Well well well, it is soooo good to not feel alone anymore....my son is 9 month's old and not sleeping through the night...he is up sometimes 2-6 times a night....he also started this sleep crawling thing and ooohhhh my he just needs to sleep through the night...He is also not a big napper I can get 2 naps a day and they only last 40min unless I am in the car then he will nap for an hour or so...many sleepness nights and I have also tried the cry it out method and well he got very upset and threw up...so we botched that idea very quickly...seems like a rather mean method....we have tried a bottle, soother, stuffy or lovey, sleeping with mom's shirt, rocking to sleep....I feel like we have tried it all....if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them......

My 9 month old does not sleep through the nights. I can count the number of times he slept more than 6 hours in a row, and most of them were as a 3 month old, in the swing.

He is finally down to 2/3 times a night, on a good night, which is a great improvement from waking up every 2 hours (that still happens). He shares a bedroom with his big brother, so we've started to put him in the dining room to sleep. This way, we can let him cry a few minutes without having both kids awake!

I have 3 kids all breastfed and my youngest is 9 mo old now. As I'm sure you have figured by all the wonderful posts, you are definitely not alone when it comes to sleeping troubles lol! My oldest 2 always woke up like clockwork every 2 hours to feed and I thought that was bad at the time. My baby now wakes up every HOUR on the dot all night long though so I find myself missing the 2 hr sleep I used to get haha! If nothing else just know that if he is only getting up a couple times per night it could be much much worse! The best advice I have is...this too will pass, it won't last forever, that I promise. Good luck with your 9 month old's not sleeping through the night!
