joshua used to be a great sleeper. two hour naps every two hours, bed at 9 and up at 8 waking up once during the night for a bottle and then go right back to sleep. for the past 2 weeks he has been waking up in the middle of the night for hours at a time. he wants to play and climb on me. he wont drink his bottles. it is 8am right now and hes been up since 5. i used to be able to lay him down and he would turn his head and fall asleep. now i have to lay with him or rock him with a bottle and then i have to stay holding him until i know hes in a dead sleep otherwise i put him down and he flips over onto his stomach and then sits up, half asleep and all. all i want him to do is sleep through the night with the one feeding. i dont even care if we cut the feeding out cause i can deal with that.

How is he napping during the day? still every 2 hours FOR 2 hours? Like flalbert suggested I would most def. change that ....I would say it's a lot of trial and error! Changing his naps and his bedtime routine and times ...Also when he wants to play in the middle of the night I would just leave him in his crib with a few toys and go back to bed...I wouldn't turn on the lights and encourage him to play...I'm sure it's frustrating and I wish I had more advice for you! g'luck!! xoxo
