My daughter is almost 11 months (in a week) and she use to sleep through the night (830pm-630am) it WAS amazing, and she has been sleeping through the night for 4 months now! All the sudden (the last 2 weeks) she keeps waking up at 230-330am every single night! The first week I would go in her room and pick her up rock her and put her in her swing and she would finally go back to sleep after 2 long hours! Now she just smiles
When I pick her up and won't go back to sleep till 9am!! So I thought okay now I won't pick her up ill Just make sure she is ok has her bink and give her teething tablets. The first night she put herself
To sleep within 5 minutes! Tonight is a different story! She's been crying since 330am and won't go back to sleep! She cries off and on and I walk into her room after about 20 minutes and she's just sitting/standing in he crib and stops crying right when she sees me! As soon as I start walking out she screams! I don't know what to do anymore!!! Help please!

Thank you for the advice ladies! I did take another approach and I shortend her afternoon nap which is now starts at 230pm or 3pm ad she can only sleep for 30-40 minutes and I kept her up till 915pm last night, THANK the GOOD LORD she slept all night till 7am!! I think I was letting her sleep to long in the afternoon and she was not tired enough to sleep through the night! I will keep trying this method as take the advice you all gave me if she does wake up again during the night!

Xo!

as long as shes fed, has a dry diaper, isnt sick, isnt teething,she should be able to put herself back to sleep. the minute she sees u, she knows if she crys enough, u will pick her up. it is very hard to hear them cry but its either that or you will be up every night. my son started sleeping through the night when he was 2 months old. not to say we didnt have our rough patches just like you are talking about. but i was told the same thing. they have to learn to self soothe and they will go back to sleep. its rough for awhile, but it does pay off in the end.
