A good sleeper gone bad
Our baby was becoming such a good sleeper. I don’t know what happened. It has only been the last two nights that we have seen a change but we are scared that our baby was just teasing us with his previous better sleeping pattern. We used to (as in the last week or so) put our baby Zach down around 8pm and he would wake sometime between 3-4AM and then after being fed sleep a few more hours before being up for the day (by being up for the day I mean being up for a few hours before napping). The last two nights have been much worse. He has woken up 3-4 times the last two nights. We were getting so used to having him wake up just once. I knew we were screwed last night when he woke up a midnight. I read online that his sleep regression may be due to a growth spurt. We pray this is temporary. If he wakes again at midnight tonight I may cry louder than him.
On a side note: I was reading online that sleeping through the night at this stage means sleeping 5-6 hours uninterrupted. That is a BS definition. You can’t call it “sleeping through the night” if your baby wakes up in the middle of the freaking night.
