is this just a phase?

My baby is 5 months old and he has been sleeping through the night for a while now and takes 2 3 hour naps a day. but for the last couple of weeks he is going to bed really late, waking up all night, waking up early and taking only 10-30 min naps and sometimes only one of those a day. What is going on. he is not fussy at all he is completely happy so it doesn't seem that he doesn't feel well. and he eats but sometimes he won't even finish a bottle. he hates eating baby food but he doesn't seem to be hungry.

  • Mine was done that off and on a couple of times, he's 13 months now, it will pass. They do different things all the time, but typically it's a growth spurt when it's happening.

  • My 5 month old went through that last week. It only lasted a week... How strange, huh?

  • Could be a growth spurt, but that normally involves eating a lot and sleeping more, but it could just throw things off for a week or so.
