    And then suddenly this week, those nightmares come to haunt you again. Your baby starts waking up frequently during the night, waking up early from naps (or refusing to nap at all) and you have no idea why or how?  

    In this article, we give you the low-down on everything you need to know about the inevitable:

    What is a sleep regression?

    baby sleep eyes open 🔴how to baby sleep eyes open for A baby sleep regression is a period of time when a baby who was previously sleeping well experiences a temporary setback in sleep patterns. During a regression, your baby will go from sleeping soundly to waking up frequently during the night, is harder to calm or settle before sleep, wakes up early from naps, or fights nap times altogether. In many cases, it’s a combination of all three – which can be extremely exhausting, not to mention frustrating, on the parents!

    Definition: sleep regression

    A period of time that lasts two to six weeks when a baby experiences poor sleep after a history of sleeping well. Signs may include frequent night awakenings, shorter naps, fighting sleep, and extreme fussiness.

    More often than not, sleep regressions seem to come out of nowhere. Parents are usually taken by surprise when their baby goes from sleeping great one night, to barely sleeping at all the next without warning. The most common time frames for sleep regression to occur are when the baby hits 4 months, 9 months, and/or 18 months of age.

    What should I expect during a sleep regression?

    A decrease in sleep and an increase in fussiness/crankiness are the most common effects of a sleep regression. The decrease in sleep might happen during nap times, night time sleep, or, in some cases, both.
