In addition to the change in her sleeping pattern, her bedtime has gone off-kilter as well. I’ve heard from several parents that sleeping patterns often change every couple of months but for us, the 8:30pm bedtime had become a solid pattern for Grace for quite a while. Again, around 2 weeks ago this all changed. She used to fall asleep on the way home from grandma and grandpa’s and would nap for around 30 minutes before waking for reading time, “dinner” and playtime followed by bedtime at 8:30pm. Now, she no longer has an evening nap and goes to bed at 8pm some nights, 8:30pm other nights and has stayed up until 9pm on several occasions! What the heck is going on here?
I’ve read about this happening on a few blogs and got some insight in my FB mommy chat room and seems as though we can blame the FOOD for all of this craziness. Prior to experiencing this for myself I had never heard of solids having such an impact on a baby. You learn something new everyday, I guess. We are now on day 3 of food #4 and I have some super cute food photos and video to share soon. If only I could find some time to sit down and write the darn post. I feel it’s going to be a long one.
But for now, please prepare yourself for some extreme cuteness ----->
