What is going on with my 8 - 10 month old? She used to sleep so well and now our nights are so hard! What do I do?

Ahh, eight months. It’s such a trying time. There’s so much going on for baby in terms of physical and cognitive development, plus teeth, and sleep is often on the backburner.

Surrendering and acceptance will do you wonders here. Accepting that baby sleep isn’t linear, (no matter what western society wants us to believe) and you haven’t done anything wrong. Likewise your baby isn’t broken, and so what if they nurse to sleep. If that’s what they need, then roll with it. Surrender to their needs, follow their lead. It won’t last forever.
