I miss sleep!!

DD is going to be 11 mo's old this week. In Sept. we moved 5 hours away to stay with my parents for awhile. For about 3 months before we moved dd was going to bed around 8-10 and sleeping until 9 in the morning, waking up, eating a bottle and going back to sleep until 11 or 12. Since we have moved she has slept through the night FOUR times. She doesn't eat whne she wakes up. She just wakes up screaming bloody murder. And when I finally get her back to sleep it's so restless, she rolls and pinches and scratches. I dont' know what is wrong. We have a routine every night, she has a crib soother *doesn't work, she still screams wih it.* I rub her down good with lotion every night, play with her to make her sleepy. I don't put her to bed until she shows me signs she's sleepy. She was doing so good before we moved! Surely she has adjusted by now. Is this just something normal babies do?

  • Is she good on everything else? Peeing and pooping? Gaining weight? Meeting other milestones? Good disposition throughout the day?

    My daughter was a great sleeper for a while, then went through a rough patch. I thought something was wrong with her, or maybe I was doing something wrong. I was at wit's end. My anxiety wasn't helping her any!! She's such an emo sponge. Eventually, I chilled out. She eventually started sleeping better. Her sleep is disrupted by anything - teething, growing, new concepts, bad dreams, fevers, gas cramps. Follow your instincts. Call your dr to get her a once-over if you need. Could be something big. Could be a rough patch. She could be pushing 6 teeth through all at once. They don't notice the pain as much until they quiet down.

  • Oh, and she may also simply be shifting her sleeping pattern. What if you keep her up when she wakes up in the am for a couple hours and then give her a nap? Mine spent a couple months doing this, before she cut down to one nap only. Mine is 13 months, now.
