9 month old currently refusing to go back to bed

She woke for a bottle, acted tired, then when I went back to bed, she pulled herself up and is now squealing and banging on everything. We share a room, and I'm trying to ignore it but I'm beyond exhausted. Help?

Sorry.

All due respect, the above posters are nuts. :)

I would absolutely not be getting up. At 9 months, kids should be sleeping through the night. Ignore it until it stops. Do not stir. No lights. No noise. No nothing.

Sorry you have to share a room... that's tough. Can you put her crib in the bathroom or closet?

Another thing that might help is a white noise machine. Mine have all slept through the night very early (even when breastfeeding), and these weird wake-ups are often due to a growth spurt or teething or something. Anyway, I completely ignore them and let my children self-sooth back to sleep and the getting up never lasts more than a couple nights.

Even when they cry, it is never longer than about 4 minutes.

Hang in there.

But don't get up unless you want to have a new habit of getting up every night. Harder to break as they get older.....

She eventually went to bed after I laid her down and gave her a pacifier. She babbled at me for a bit, whined a little, and knocked out. It was 4am where we are, and her wake up time isn't until 7:30am or so. I won't just get up and play with her. Her father isn't in the picture, so I got through the newborn stage alone. I won't get her into a routine of "I wake up whenever and mom will play."
