Hi everyone! My daughter is 10 mos. She has slept through the night here and there. She's never been the best sleeper, but these past 2-3 wks she's been waking at least twice a night SCREAMING and standing in her crib. I should clarify now that my husband and I are not supporters of the "cry it out" method for our family.
I go in, I even try to just lay her back down and NOT pick her up, but she keeps sitting up and SCREAMING! When I rock her/hold her, she immediately stops. I'm just wondering why this has been worse these past couple weeks. There are a few things I've come up with, but want other ideas if anyone has them!
1. She's off bottles (only has been for a couple days- she took really well to sippies, we did not force this)
3 separation anxiety.
4. Growth spurt.
Thank you in advance for any other suggestions on what might be going on here! :) I appreciate it!

Just because some babies sleep through the night doesn't mean they all should. Not all adults sleep well at night, it's just whatever works for different people. My oldest slept through the night at a month old, my youngest slept through the night at 11 months old. Just depends on the person.

Our oldest we could pull around by his pant leg, our daughter would sleep through a marching band, then their is our last!!!! he was,is and probably always be a light sleeper. He is 17 and if I open his door he pops right up! All are different like us. I think you are awesome to try to help her. You sound like a great mommy. I remember the same feeling when our boy would behave the same.
