For the past 2 weeks my 7 month old has been waking up every hour and half to two hours and she stays up anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. When she wakes up I let her fuss for a while until she starts crying. But when I get her up she seems fine. She's not cold, not hungry. She seems like she feels ok cause she just looks around and smiles. Her diaper is dry, etc etc. I have no clue why she keeps waking up. She has a very consistent nap schedule that she does great with. And she isn't over sleeping so she it shouldn't be that she's not tired. I'm not a big fan of letting her cry it out, I would rather figure out what the problem is and address it. Any ideas or suggestions?Answer Question

She could be hitting a growth spurt or getting ready to develop a new skill, or just testing you to see if you respond or not. And since you did the first time....lol...but there could be several things. But I would try what MamaChamp said and make sure she really doesn't need anything then leave. Tell her it is time to sleep. And don't let anyone tell you that 7 month old can't be manipulative. Good Luck! and sweet dreams!
