I have a 12 month old daughter who just recently started crawling on her hands and knees (before that she just did the "army crawl" on her tummy). She has always been a good sleeper at night, and always sleeps 12 hours solid. She's not much for napping though, and I'm lucky if I get 2 30 min cat naps out of her a day. Recently she has been waking up at like 4 or 5 am crying, sitting upright and needs to be fed and put back to sleep. Sometimes (like this morning) she refuses to be put back in her crib and I have to bring her to bed with me. I really hate this and worry she is getting sleep deprived. Anyone else experience this?Answer Question
Oh my, my dd did this. She switched it up and drove me crazy. Not only would she wake up but wouldn't go back to sleep. So I would sit in the chair and doze while she played. I did get very sleep deprived, worse then when she was a newborn. What I did is let her cry it out (I know sooo many ppl think its wrong) but I have 2 other kids to take care of too and needed to sleep. Within two night she would fall asleep on her own and did not wake at all the two nights. Now Im caught up on my sleep and i'm a more energetic mommy lol On a side not the first night I did it her dad was gone, second he was home and was swearing up and down that I was traumatizing our daughter. He was freaking, I told him then you get up with her and see how you feel about it. He was totally amazed when she would just fall asleep quietly the 3rd night.
