I'm just after some advice regarding my 7.5 month old son suddenly waking through the night. I realise it may just be a phase and he wants to try out his new tricks (crawling rolling, etc) whenever he's awake, but if anyone has any tips or tricks to try that I haven't thought of, it would be greatly appreciated
He has slept 12 hours overnight with no problems self settling since about 10 weeks old, so of course DH and I have gotten used to this, but for the last couple of weeks he has been waking at 4 am every morning. He is still tired, as soon as I pick him up he goes straight back to sleep, but if I try to put him back in his cot he cries, then it takes at least an hour to get him settled back in his cot. I change his nappy if needed, offer him a feed but he's not interested.
He currently has 2-3 naps a day, first 2 can be anywhere from an hour to 2 hours and if he has a third, it is usually just a 30 min catnap before dinner. He has the same bedtime routine of bath, massage, breastfeed, story or quiet play then bed at around 7:30-8ish and we have no trouble getting him to go to bed.
