Almost 6month old starting to wake again during night!

My little man will be 6 months on the 26th of this month...He usually was a great sleeper and would sleep throug h the night like 9pm till like almost 730 8 am now he's waking up more sometimes at like midnight then like 5 or 6am sometimes he will wimper for awhile then go back to sleep or sometimes he will wake up and talk...but he's been waking up alot earlier now then usual does anyone know if that may be his teeth messing with his sleep pattern? I do not see any white buds or anything but im stumped on why this is happening? Maybe a growth spurt?

  • now that he's getting bigger.. maybe he's hungry.. try feeding him more right before bed.. give him cereal and a bottle.. that might work... or maybe he's not sleepy.. as they get older you can cut back on the naps... don't let him have a nap past like 5:00.. hope this was helpful..

  • i agree giving him solids with his last bottle, also a couple teething tablets before bed, my dd is 8 months old and still wakes now for like a minute or 2 then passes back out also they wake up more when they are learning a new milestone

  • Six months is gorwth spurt time. But sleep patterns are purely temporary in year one anyway.

    Be aware that solids before bed can make them wake certainly was the case here.

  • My dd did the same thing.....she got 2 teeth at the same time...started eatting an ounce more and a whole jar more of baby food at every about 7 months she leveled back off to her i would say teething and growth spurt. things will get better soon. :) GL.
