so lo just turned one. Was sleeping great ttn.. Now wake 3am, 4am, or 5am and wont go back to sleep. I try putting him in my bed and he wont lay down there either. If I go in and try to lay him back down in his crib he just gets more upset and cried like crazy. any suggestion please?
Re: one year old not sttn anymore
Is he teething?
Isn't here a12 month growth spurt?
Is he in that awkward phase where he still needs two naps but that means later bed time?
The only thing I can think of is to try to wear him out in the day, stopping for quiet time about an hour before bed. Maybe if you think his teeth are bothering him load him up with Motrin before bed?
This might be a controversial suggestion, lol, but does he need milk in the middle of the night? Maybe he is going through a period of needing more calories? Some people will really hate this suggestion, since it seems like it is going backwards and they would worry about habits.
Have you thought about letting him get up and play? I know you need sleep, too, so this might not be a reasonable suggestion.
Has he recently started cows milk instead of formula or breast milk? Maybe he needs Mir iron?
I'm shooting from the hip here, lol, just to see if anything hits.
Lastly, I know you are tired! As you try to figure out what's going on, keep telling yourself "everything is temporary, everything is temporary." one day he will sleep again!! You can handle this. You got this.
