7 months almost 8 months old

I don't remember where I read this but I read that when your lo gets to be 8 months old there sleeping pattern at night seems to get all messed up bc they want to wake up and play a lot or are about to learn something new. My son out of no where began doing this last night. 4 times he woke up and he has been sleeping for 8 to 10 hours at night. Anyone elses 7 month old doing this?

  • It doesn't necessarily happen at a specific age, but when they may be about to hit some kind of developmental milestone, or sometimes if they're having a growth spurt. It happens at different ages for different babies, but yes, completely normal.
