Our little guy co-slept until 7 months when we transitioned him into his crib. He quickly settled into a routine of waking once around 3am to nurse then right back to his crib. The past 5 weeks or so he has been waking around midnight then 2am, 4am, and 6am. I bring him to bed to nurse then carry him back to his crib until the 6am waking where I co-sleep until the alarm goes off at 7am. Needless to say this has set me up for some serious sleep deprivation and in my foggy state it took me a while to realize that this waking pattern is EXACTLY the same as it was when he was 2 months old and briefly struggling with reflux. I phoned my pediatritan who confirmed that reflux is known to reoccur around 11 months and he suggested I resume the reflux medication and other reflux management techniques. That night after one dose and an earlier feeding my little guy slept 9pm-6am straight. I don’t know how you feel about reflux meds but you may try some reflux management techniques and see if that helps. Good luck!

With my first, I never really had to change her diaper overnight (unless she pooped, but she didn’t really at night). I assumed it would be the same with my second. But there were times when she would be restless like that at night, and even nursing couldn’t get her back into a good sleep. She just kept tossing and turning. Eventually, I decided to try changing her diaper, and then she went back to sleep within a minute! In the middle of the night, nursing is my first go-to attempt. But now, if that doesn’t settle her, I remember to try changing her diaper, and it helps a lot!
