My little one is coming up to 8 months now. When he was little we followed his bedtime routine, put him in his crib and he settled himself, only woke up for feeds/ changes and never got upset through the night. He napped no problem through the day, as long as you were in the same room, although was often upset when he woke up.
The last couple of months, Fynn's been getting upset before sleep at night or day and seems to find going to sleep quite distressing. He only sleeps in my arms or in his buggy now during the day as wakes up if we put him anywhere. We have followed the same bedtime routine since he was born (bath, massage, pj's, feed, book, settle in crib), although often don't do story anymore as finds this quite stimulating and wakens him up. He cries almost every night, and can take over an hour to start his nap even though he's exhausted.
He also now wakes up through the night, even though he doesn't want fed or changed and seeks a lot of reassurance and physical comfort, we've had to move him back to our room as he was waking through the night and crying every time I left the room even though he looked asleep.
Was just hoping someone else might have experienced something similar and have some advice/ tips? We're not sure if there's something we've missed that could be unsettling him.
