What happend to my sleep?

I remember a time when Brandon would sleep. He is quickly approaching his 6 month birthday and his sleep habit are changing for the worse. He use to only wake up 1 time in the night and sometimes he would even sleep through the night (7 hours and more) it was wonderful! Now I am lucky to get 3 solid hours of sleep before he is up. I don't know what is causing it, could it be from his teething, or could it be that he is simply too active and is practicing his technique at sitting up, and rolling over, or is he really needing that much more food? I used to swaddle him, but it was getting ridiculous how tight I had to wrap him, so I stopped, maybe I should go back to swaddling? If you have any tips, or advise for me I would be grateful.

ARe you still having troubles? I remember at around 6 months my daughters and sons sleeping changed also, luckily, it was just a phase, and it happened again at 1 year and at 2. Hopefully it will be short lived and you can go back to getting a nights sleep..sorry to hear though!

Ok, your little man is sooooo stinking cute! I remember seeing him at my shower at the end of December but I don't think I had enough time to really take a look and notice him. What a total doll! I love the good old swaddle. Stella really enjoys being wrapped up and secure. I don't know what to tell you about sleeping because our household is still trying to adjust and establish a routine! Good luck and let us all know what tricks you find out about since I will be experiencing the 6 month mark in a few months! I am SO glad you found my blog, I love yours and it is great to reconnect with you!
