DD is usually a pretty good sleeper. STTN since about 3 moths or so. That being said, for the last couple weeks she has been waking at night more then usual. We used to just pat her on the back when she stirred and would go back to sleep. Now we have to rock her or sometimes after no luck bring her to bed with us and she sleeps on our chest. The sleeping with us is only the last resort if nothing else works. I spoke with the doctor at her 9 month check up and she checked her ears and there was no infection but didn't really say much after that. So I am wondering if anyone else is going through this and for so long?! It's exhausting for both my husband and I. He says we should just let her cry it out but when she is sobbing uncontrollably at 1am its hard to just let her cry.
I keep thinking it's just a phase, and really hoping so, since she is usually a good sleeper. She also has had the sniffles that last few days so I am sure that just added to her restlessness.
Any words of wisdom or encouragement would be great!! Thanks all!
