The following is a sample of sleep-related Touchpoints your child may experience in her first year:
4 months – Your baby is learning to stretch sleep out to 8 hours by trying out ways to soothe herself back to sleep at every 3 to 4 hours, when her sleep becomes lighter and may wake her up.
8 months – Your baby may start awakening again during the night as his daytime crawling keeps him going and stranger awareness starts to worry him.
10 months – Your baby may be found standing up in her crib every 3 to 4 hours, crying for you as if she just can’t get herself back down.
12 months – Your baby may wake up every 3 to 4 hours with one thing on his mind – walking.
