  • Babies go through stages...growth spurts, daugher actually slept better at 5 months than she did at a year...she might be hungry due to a growth spurt. Nurse/feed her back to sleep. it's normal for a baby that age to wake. and remember, 5 hours IS through the night for a little one. it might not be the time you like, but it's the time they pick:)

  • Do you have a routine? If you get a routine that signifies time for bed, rather than just a nap, baby might sleep, for us, we read her a story, brush her 3 little teeth with a finger brush and say gnight, love you, we'll see you in the a.m. She goes to sleep for the whole night - from 7am - 7pm. Hope this helps - :)

  • Keep a routine. Don't change what you were doing before.

    Babies do normally change what they do. Nothing is wrong.. it's merely aggravating!

  • I have found that babies sometimes do really well going back to swaddling around this age, even though they gave it up months ago.... its worth a try!
