Night Time Babbling!

Mwahh! 5mo DD has started night time babbling. Sadly it's not for just 10 minutes but for nearly 2 hours!!

Last night she woke up at 1am so I gave her a feed and then she babbled for nearly 2hrs before falling asleep. She woke up again at 430 again and babbled for another hour! She sounds quite happy and seems to enjoy practicing her new noises but it's impossible to sleep through (she is in our room still, no space for her to move out yet).

Did anybody else's baby do this and grow out of it (quickly!) I know it's probably just a developmental phase but ssshhhh i'm wiped out!

Thanks

DS 7mo has gone through phases of doing this, and it drives me completely potty. The only way I've found to deal with it is to change the settings on the monitor so it only kicks in when the noise rises above a certain volume, but leaving both our bedroom doors ajar so I can hear him but it isn't massively amplified. Now I can generally sleep through it. I don't know what to suggest if you are still sharing a room, sorry! Earplugs?

I feel bad because at least she isn't crying and during the day it's cute but not at 2am! Even earplugs didn't help and then I start worrying that she will wake DS! We are moving house next week (to my parents whilst we find a house) and she will have to stay in our room then too, mwahhhh. I know it's a developmental phase that will pass but don't know when! Last night after 2hrs of babbling she was then sucking her thumb and nearly asleep when she did a big poo, I nearly sobbed! sad

Mine does this occassionaly. Sometimes I would lie in bed with him, just dozing while he babbled. Then I saw sense and got me some earplugs.

I think completely ignoring is the only answer, but v tricky if you're in the same room!
