i have a 4-month old boy, and we seem to have entered a period of wakefulness. He is super alert during the day, really distracted, especially while eating and trying to nap. He just went through a growth spurt and some teething, so he has had a ton of development lately (gross motor, a lot of squealing, laughing, playfulness, etc.) but now we're waking often during the night, sometimes to eat, but often wanting to play. I've heard this could be wakefulness period. Is this real? How long does it last? Does anyone have any suggestions for dealing with baby wanting to play at 1 am?
It's tough because we had just all started sleeping better and now we're up again at night... Though its hard to get frustrated when he's smiling up at me from his crib...
