    I have an 9 months old baby. My baby has not slept more than 2 hours in a row since he was 3 months old.

    We have a night time routine and we start off in the crib. After putting him down for the night, he will wake up after 20-45 minutes. My husband usually picks him up and put him back to sleep. Again he will wake after 45 minutes. At that point I take him to my bed and keep him with me until the morning. He will nurse probably 4-5 times and sometimes he will wake up at 4 am ready to party! After 1 hr he will go down again. The problem is not getting him to fall asleep, is to actually staying asleep. we are desperate.

    My baby boy is 11 months old and constantly for the past month or so he keeps waking up at 4-4.30 wide awake wanting to play and wake for the day. We have tried literally everything we can think of but nothing as worked so far.

    He has 2 naps per day for about 1 hr at a time which I have read is correct for his age. Due to his waking early he will sometimes want to sleep around 7am for 20 mins or so and than his up again happy and ready to play.

    His bedtime was 7pm until recently we moved it back to 6pm as I read this could help him. It did help him sleep in until 5-5.30 am but that didn’t last long. Now his back to waking up at 4.30 am happy and wanting to get up.

    I have also tried giving him a bottle when he wakes up at 4 am and sometimes he will nod off for around 10 mintues and than his back up again wide awake. And he doesn’t drink much of the bottle so I’m very awake he is not waking up because his hungry.

    I have tried various bedtimes and babe adjusted his naps hoping that would help him but so far nothing has worked.

    He is also walking now but long before he started this he was waking at 4am. I’ve heard milestones can be a reason they wake up early but this early rising starting long before he started walking. It started around the time day light savings clocks went forward.

    Hope you have some advice for me.

    Thank you

      @ Sarah – the best resources for you, I think, would be our shifting schedules e-book. This is something that’s available only to members, so you’d need to become a Baby Sleep Site member to access it. Since this is your only pressing issue (sounds like your son is sleeping really well otherwise), you could try the 3-month membership, and then download and print a copy of the e-book. You can read more about it here: https://www.babysleepsite.com/diy/#membership

      Hope this helps, Sarah! Best of luck to you and to your family 🙂
