Worried mom...

So my DD is 10 months old. Last night she slept through the night without waking up, for the first time.
She slept in late and even when she woke up she was still laying down, snuggling her blanket. When she saw me she sat up and put her arms up so I could pick her up.
I brought her downstairs and she fell asleep in my arms less than 10 minutes later.(she never falls asleep while being held anymore)
I let her sleep that way for a bit. I figured she'd need a clean diaper since she's gone all night but her diaper was dry.
I woke her up and gave her a bottle thinking maybe she was slightly lethargic because of low blood sugar. She devoured the bottle, crawled around for about 15 minutes and then was rubbing her eyes again.
Put her back down for a nap 2 hours and 15 minutes ago. I checked on her and she's sleeping away.
She doesn't have a fever.

What could be wrong?

  • I can imagine this would make you worry - the only thing that sounds a little worrysome to me is the dry diaper overnight - once she wakes up from this nap I would make sure she's wet her diaper, other wise I'd call her pedi....or if she is acting strange once she wakes up - but I agree it's probably just a growth spurt! Good luck :)

  • Call the pediatrician if you're worried, but it may be that she's going through a growth spurt.

  • I would say growth spurt as well but it can't hurt to call your pediatrician.

  • The only think that would worry me is the dry diaper. She maybe very dehydrated. Give her another bottle when she wakes up and if she doesn't wet her diaper then call the doctor.

  • Both my kids were like that right before they mastered a new skill.
