WHY won't she sleep!

It is almost 1 am, DS will not sleep! She is 9 months and usually nurses to sleep just fine, it has been hours and she will not go down, wth.  She just keeps wiggling and crying and so I brought her out to the living room and she is now happily playing with her toys.

Big hugs, momma! My DD went through a stage where she wanted to play until 1 or 2 in the morning. I just had to let her play and she eventually wore herself out. It will pass!

same here, when ds was at this age, many many times he woke up wanting to jump in the jumperoo and he would go to town, for about 2 hrs then crash. he just had lots of energy and wanted to explore. i agree this too shall pass.

I don't have an answer, but I'm feeling your pain. Mine went down at 8pm with no problem. He woke up at 2am. It's now almost 5:30am and I can't get him back to sleep. He too is almost nine months. He is wiggling around. He won't eat. He won't sleep. I'm miserable!

It happens. Milestones, teeth, growth spurts. Im really not expecting much sleep thesr first two years. Since i have little expectations to sleep, any stretch of uninterrupted sleep longer than 3 hours is great!

Thanks everybody, got her down at 1:30, she is getting her top teeth in now, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Almost every baby does this around nine months. It's a developmental thing. And it will pass. =)

It's a phase, mine did the same thing for a week. Is she working on any new skills? Mine was like this right when she was trying to figure out how to get on her hands and knees to crawl. Then she'd sleep was was restless for another week. Then, BAM! she crawled, pulled to standing and walked with her push toy all in 2 days. Slept great after that :)
