My baby is almost 9 months old. She still wakes up a couple times a night. I have been very forgetful can't think straight sometImes. Paranoid at home, always thinking I'm seeing something in my perifreal?. I just feel kinda crazy. It's almost like pregnancy brain but much worse. Does this sound like sleep deprivation? I wake up so so tired but I don't nap throughout the day bc I will have a hard time going to sleep at night. *sigh*

Ya I had a yearly recently (but this was before hand) and everything was good then. She's 8.5 months old now. We wake up. Around 7,730 nap at 9 for like an hour and next nap around 1 and the last one anywhere between 3-5. I try to do bedtime be 730. All that's not really consistent and this sleep issue really obly started about 2 weeks ago. Before that she would go back to sleep but now when she wakes up she wants to crawl around and stand....it's like I have to force naps and sleep. I'm not sure if she's getting too much or not enough or maybe it's a milestone or soemthibg. I just can't think straight lol. She used to go to bed at 9 or 10 but started waking up at 4am so I pushed it to earlier but she still wakes up and wants to play. I don't mind the wake to eat and immediately going to sleep but awake and trying to play is tiring. I'm going to try to get more sleep and have my husvand watch her. It's hard bc he works a lot. *sigh*
I'm not sure why I have a hard time going to sleep at night with naps, I do have anxiety sometimes.

Yes, it sounds like speep deprivation. It could be more, so def talk with your doctor and have a physical. In the meantime, do you have a significant other that can take at least one of the night time wake ups to help you out??

I highly suggest getting that nap in regardless. You may seriously need it. If you are sleep deprived, this might help. But that surprises me you would have trouble going to sleep at night. Usually with sleep deprivation, you are so tired that taking a nap in the daytime doesn't effect the night time.

Also, how many naps is bub taking during the day time? If she is taking to many during the day time, that can effect her sleeping all night long.....

With my first, he was sleeping through the night (most nights) at 6 weeks. With my daughter, I did not get more than 4 hours straight for almost 2 years......I thought I was literally going to DIE!!! It is rough.

Leave the baby with someone for a night, are you a single mom or have a partner to help? if so, let them take care of her at night for a week. on the first day, go to sleep around 6 or 7 pm then take naps throughout the days AND at night for the rest of the week, see how you feel afterwards.
