Little man is 9.5 months old and for the past week, he won't let me rock him to sleep like I've done since he was born. Before bed, he usually nurses to sleep and I lay him in his crib and he just rolls over and falls asleep. If he didn't fall asleep when nursing, I would rock him to sleep and then put him in his crib. We also rock him to sleep for nap time.
However, for the past week, he'll stop nursing and when I try to rock him he starts screaming his head off and won't stop no matter what I try. If I lay him down in his crib it's even worse; he's inconsolable ... until daddy comes in. I hand him over to dad and he sits down and starts rocking him and he immediately calms down and just lays there, falling asleep within a few minutes. What is going on?!
It's tough because I don't want my husband to have to be responsible for all bedtimes, nap times, and night wakings now, but it's been impossible for me to get him to sleep when he's so upset. The strange thing is two weeks ago we were on vacation and he slept all through the night and fell asleep for bedtime and naps just fine, as usual. He was even getting a tooth then!
I think he's getting another tooth now, but I can't chalk this up to teething since he's fine once my husband takes him. During the day, he always wants me and is calling for me, but suddenly he wants nothing to do with me at bedtime or nap time. What is going on?
Anyone else going through this or have any suggestions? Thank you!
