Tue, 12-28-2010 - 3:20pm

Rielyn would sleep 5-9 hours straight at night right from day 1. Then she did the 4 month sleep change and had to move to her crib since she was too big for her moses basket and then wouldn't be swaddled anymore ect.....then she had a cold and slept in our bed a bit now when we put her to bed she wakes after 30-40 mins then again 30-40 minutes later and then maybe 1 more time then she will sleep 3-4 hours...and then she wakes every 2 hours until morning ect....her naps went to crap too! She wont sleep longer

Around this age they are learning that if they cry we come in.

We had the same sitch here a few weeks ago. Ryan spent the first week of my sleep boot camp crying for 5-15 minutes but would then sleep for 5-8 hours (woot!) We've had multiple interruptions since then - travel, illness, teething, etc. - but he seems to be getting back on track. He now wakes just 1-2x/night which I can handle.

He rarely cries when he goes down at 7pm now, though he will still WAIL in the middle of the night. I nurse him briefly to calm him and put him back in his crib mostly awake at which point he rolls over and conks out.

Good luck!
