Sleep Regression

Oona has played a dirty little trick on us. You see, she had us fooled that she had finally perfected the art of sleeping through the night. Matt and I were starting to get used to getting a straight 6-8 hours of sleep every night again. Life was good! And then. Out of nowhere, she started crying at 3am every single night. That wouldn't be so bad if it were a matter of feeding her and putting her back down to sleep again right away, but no. A lot of nights she doesn't want to eat and go back to sleep, she just wants to play. So finally around maybe 4:30 she settles back down in bed...until 6am.

After a consult with my favorite Dr. Google, we learned this is probably a case of 4-month-old sleep regression - a pretty common occurrence, if internet forums are to be trusted. And I sure hope the internet is right on this one, because if they are then she should start sleeping through the night again in a few weeks. (Crossing fingers and toes!) And until then, look for the yawning couple with bloodshot eyes chugging coffee. Wave hello when you see us!
