Dr Spock says that at this age they get excited with all the developmental milestones they reach and are just too darn excited to sleep. My 8 month old is waking like a newborn at the mo. Apparently they even dream of their new skills, which is really sweet if still exhausting. We're trying the pick up/put down thing. Worked last night. He's teething tho aswell so supplementing with Calpol.
It's not just yours CP! My 8mo is also waking any time between 4 and 5:30 in the mornings now. I tried reducing her naps during the day and it worked for about a week, but the little clever-cloggs seems to have adjusted to it and still wakes at stupid o'ckock.
if anyone has miracle advice, I'd like some too please!
