I have a 10 months old son who (generally) sleeps pretty good, but he has these random stages where he will take forever to fall asleep and he'll wake up a lot thoughout the night. We (me and DH) rock him to sleep in the rocking chair is LO's room. Once he's asleep from rocking him, we lay him in his crib. Sometimes, he stays asleep...sometimes he wakes right back up, starts crying and we have to do our routine all over again. Rarely does he sleep though the night though. We normally start his routine with a 6oz bubba and some oatmeal, then quiet time/reading of books, then it is time to go into his room to rock him to sleep. He'll fall asleep around 8:30-9pm and he'll wake up sometimes around 1:30, sometimes around 3:30 and most times around 4:30. I go back in there and rock him again until he falls asleep. He usually wakes up in the morning between 5:30-6:30AM...depending on when he falls asleep, but he wakes up at least once if not twice on 99% of the nights. Do you think we should sleep train?? and if so, is it too late since he's 10 months old now?? any ideas/opinios would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
