You hear your babe. You look at the monitor. She’s sitting up. Wide awake. You look at the daunting time on the clock…..5:00 AM. “and it begins again…” you say to yourself.
Springtime, my most favourite time of the year! Grass starts growing, windows get opened, birds are chirping, the sun stays out longer, calves are born, our gravel roads turn into mud pits, and car washes make millions! It’s a beautiful sign that we are done with the long cold winters we experience in Northern Alberta, and warm weather is imminent.
We hear it all the time. The 4 month sleep regression. Parents are often baffled at the fact that their child slept wonderfully from birth until 4 months and then it seems that it has turned into a train wreck. Baby will begin waking from naps after 30-50 minutes, staying awake for longer periods during the day and is likely to experience more night wakings. There is a biological reason for all of this.
