getting Hunter down for the night
Ever since Hunter hit the 4 month sleep regression, nighttime sleep just hasn’t been the same (I miss the simple night where he slept 12 hours straight through!). He’s slept through the night since the regression, but I feel like most nights he wakes up now. Around the time we started solids it got worse, but I have a theory on that for another day.
Today I’m here for your tips/advice!
Hunter used to go down for the night around 8pm. He would sleep through the night, or wake up for me to feed him. That’s not so much the issue. Now when he goes down around 8pm, he wakes up 45 minutes – 1 hour later like he just took a nap. Trying to get him back to sleep after that is a struggle to say the least. Last night was the worse it’s been, finally getting him to sleep around 11:20pm. I think teething may be part of the issue, but there’s another piece to it. His wake up time used to be around 6-6:30am, now it’s pushed back to 7:30-8:30am, probably from him getting to sleep later. It just seemed to happen one day.
We’ve been pretty blessed with how good of a sleeper Hunter has been, but this one is throwing me for a loop!
Any tips on how to get him down for the night and into night time sleep, not just for a nap? We’re trying to get more of a nighttime routine going… probably just more consistency would help. I think I’ll also try and keep him up a bit later tonight and see if that helps… thoughts?
