Could be teething pain, could be developmental leaps-- is he working on walking or crawling or something like that?
bedsharing, knitting, toddler-nursing, nerdy, babywearing mama!
we put DD down at 9:30 last night (tried earlier but she would have none of that). She woke at 12:30 and 4:30, that's it. The difference? I slept in another room and left her in the big bed with papa. That's the third time over a period of a month or more I have bailed on DH to get some sleep and DD sleeps well too. We may make it a more frequent arrangement for sanity's sake. DH brought her to me and she nursed easily back to sleep both times, even tho she was really yowling when she woke up.
Good luck getting some sleep!
