My daughter was sleeping 8-9 hours at night since she was 3 wks old. But ever since we went out of town for a week (she with us) her sleeping habits have changed for the worse! She wakes up all throughout the night. I let her cry it out but she only wakes up an hour or two later. Not only is she not sleeping well at night, now her naps are lasting only 30 mins and only twice a day!! What happened to my baby?

It's a phase, they all go through it. As soon as you find yourself getting used to one thing, then something will change and you'll have an entirely new set of things to worry about. If she's eating well before bed, getting her diapers changed often enough, and in a calm, quiet environment, then she should be fine. I know you may be lacking sleep for awhile, but she will grow out of it.

My son's sleeping habits has changed as well. He started sleeping 5-6 hrs when he was 3 months old. But the past couple weeks he's been sleeping for 2-3 hrs, he'll wake up to get his diaper changed then go back to sleep after 15-60 minutes. During the day he stays up 3-5 hrs and takes 15-30 minute cat naps.

He's also 5 months, he'll be 6 months old October 10
