Sleep regressions are a struggle all parents face no matter how long their child has been sleeping through the night we are all bound to encounter hiccups through the way. Knowing why these sleep regressions are occurring can help us as parents help our children deal with them better.
For our now seven month old, we had just gotten him sleeping through the night in his own room in his crib when he experienced a sleep regression. As frustrating as this sleep regression was to us as parents having the knowledge as to what caused the sleep regression and knowing that if we stayed consistent he would be back to sleeping through the night soon.
I’ve compiled descriptions of each sleep regression so that you can have that same knowledge and piece of mind if your child experiences a sleep regression.
