Sleeping and Walking?

I read somewhere that when a baby is getting ready to take off walking on their own they'll wake up several times a night until they do. I was wondering how many moms have had this happen to them. My son has been waking up a lot more all of a sudden and he's been cruising for at least a month. He'll let go of what he's holding onto sometimes & stand for about 5-10 seconds then realize what he's doing and fall down. He walks perfect when holding onto someones hands and likes to run people over in his walker lol.

  • I never heard that either but it makes sense - have you heard of the wonder weeks books? Apparently it explains things along that line also where your childs mind and body are getting prepared or making a milestone and it interrupts thier sleep.
