It seems that when it comes to my son, there's always some reason for sleepless nights. Growth spurts, teething, feedings, teething, teething... Did I mention teething?
These days he's completely restless because he's learning to crawl and is constantly in exploration mode, even in his sleep! He'll be sound asleep, then all of a sudden he'll flip over onto his tummy and start crawling around his crib, waking himself up in the process. And me, of course!
It's non-stop, every hour. Then putting him back to sleep becomes an impossible task.
According to popular parenting expert and pediatrician Dr. William Sears, "Major developmental milestones, such as sitting, crawling, and walking, drive babies to "practice" their new developmental skills in their sleep."

So it's been a non-stop after-hours party in my house this past week...anyone else ever experience similar issues?
