My DD who has been a good sleeper until the past week or so has suddenly decided she will wake several times in the night and be proper wide-eyed awake. WTF?!?!

Why all of a sudden would she go from sleeping peacefully and clearly knowing the difference between night and day to thinking nighttime is awake time???

Anyone's child of similar age doing this?

Yes... Mine! She used to sleep through the night but is now waking up 3/4 times. She isn't particularly hungry, just wide awake and wants to play. No real advice I'm afraid, I'm as baffled as you. In our case I think maybe she has forgotten how to self settle. Watching thread with interest.

At around 4 months is a common time for babies to have a sleep regression due to developmental leaps (if you google it loads of info comes up). Unfortunately you just have to ride it & things will settle back down just in time for the next bloody one
