    Hello, my son is 9.5 months old. I thought we were already through this sleep regression at 8 months (he was getting up 2x/night after sleeping through the night for months) but he is fighting daytime sleep hard right now. I let him fall asleep on his own, use a sound machine, dark room, do a little pre-sleep routine, wait 2.75-3 hours of wake time before putting him down, and he won’t take a pacifier. He is visibly tired, yawning, and heavy-eyed as I hold him before laying him down. He wastes up to 45 minutes standing up, crawling, playing, rolling around, but mostly moaning and crying before going to sleep. It seems to be getting worse. I will go in every 10-15 minutes, pat him on the back, have him lay back down (but not pick him up) and tell him it’s time to go to sleep. I don’t know what else I can do to help him to get to sleep quicker. Any thoughts?

      Hi Lindsey,
      Thank you for visiting The Baby Sleep Site! I’m so sorry you are dealing with this situation 🙁 It sounds like you might have some issue with your son’s schedule or a sleep association, but it’s hard to know what’s going on without more information. Have you looked at our 9 month sample sleep schedule to make sure his nap timings are similar to our recommended ones?
      If you continue to have trouble, I would urge you to consider a sleep consultation so you can work with one of our sleep consultants directly. She could look at your son’s schedule, your routine, and how he’s falling asleep and help you with any issues. Hang in there!

    My 10 month old naps well and falls asleep well at bedtime. The routine is PJs, books, cuddles/rocking for about 2/3 minutes, in crib almost asleep. But for the last 2 weeks he wakes 2-4 hours after bedtime and takes 2 hours of rocking, rubbing, patting, sit on his floor ignoring him, and anything else we can think of to go back to sleep. He whines while we try to soothe and screams of we leave the room. Finally when he is exhausted he will lie down. I don’t know what else to try to get him back to sleep faster, and ultimately sleep through the night again. He wakes at 7am, naps at 10am and 2pm, with bedtime at 7pm.

      Hi @Shelley – Thank you for visiting us. I’m sorry to hear your son is having trouble sleeping. We can definitely understand how tough those long awake times in the night are! We do see some sleep issues come up often at around 10 months, but two weeks of these long hours spent trying to get him back to sleep in the night are surely wearing on you!

All of our e-mail packages come with a Personalized Sleep Plan, which is a detailed guide written just for your family given your sleep history you share with us. if you have any sleep logs, send those to your consultant too – she will be happy to help get to the bottom of these wakings, and help you through it.
