  • That 11pm-1am was "playtime" tonight!!
    I have no idea what happened. He has been sleeping through since about 2 months, and for the past 3 weeks has been sleeping from around 7pm-6am. All of a sudden at 11pm he woke up. I let him lay there because I thought he might just be in a lighter period of sleep, and then I tried the paci. He finally started to cry around 11:45 so I went over to him and his eyes were wide open and when he saw me he gave me his big old gummy smile!
    So I did the worst thing possible probably, and just let him get up and we played. How long should I have let him lay there? I just thought that if he was going to go back to sleep, he would have in the 45 minutes I let him lay in his crib. Then, he wanted to nurse, and he took a full feeding. I put him back to bed awake after that, and he still was "talking" in his crib. I just let him lay there and he finally went back to sleep. I have no idea why this would happen. He was definitely hungry though. A growth spurt perhaps? I didn't have a lot of caffiene or anything today, so I don't think it's that. Am I missing something?

  • It could be a growth spurt Jeanne, they usually have one around the 3 month mark. Or maybe he just woke up for no particular reason. I don't think playing with him will make much difference in his sleep habits but sometimes they do say not to talk, etc but rather keep the lights dimmed and such so they know it's nighttime and not playtime. But maybe that pertains to older babies? They're still so little. I would have done the same thing.

  • most of us on the 2005 Jan - March PG had issues like this that started around 3.5 or 4 months. Seemed it lasted about 5 days or so (sometimes longer) and was related to developmental milestones and growth spurts.

  • I would have done the same thing you did if it were me.
    I've noticed when Carly was little. Once you got them into a sleeping pattern they up and change it on you. I think just to keep mommy on her toes.
