Hello! Our 7mo daughter was a relatively great sleeper until she got a terrible cold and cough from daycare at 6months and simultaneously started rolling onto her tummy at night. She panics on her tummy and isn't able to roll from tummy to back so screams about half of the time, the other half she goes back to sleep.
She goes to bed by 7pm. Our nights typically have at least a few wake ups starting around midnight. It's completely unpredictable, and many times she is up on her arms, looking trapped on her tummy, wailing at the top of her lungs. Then she wakes up at 4, whimpers for an hour/wakes up and falls asleep until 5am when I feed her. I nurse her to back sleep and then she wakes for the day at 715.
The past few days she has been waking up at 1130 pm screaming bloody murder for an hour or more. We're at my in-laws for the next week with many relatives and small children. :/
We haven't sleep trained her out of this phase because it never seems to be the right time. Her nose is constantly blocked with the cold so she can't breathe, her coughs are really bad and wake her up, and she sometimes HATES her tummy and can't roll over from it, plus she hasn't gotten any teeth yet so we never know is she may be teething or not.
When/how do we sleep train knowing this will be a baby that will cry for hours unless we soothe her, that she is still sick and likely will be for the foreseeable future (daycare), and teething is hovering in the near future?
And in the meantime, what do we do to survive to the next week/few weeks?
Ps I only nurse her to sleep at the 5am feed. She is 50th percentile for height and weight. She sleeps in a sleep sack in her own room and we put her down with a wubanub which she can put in her own mouth at night. We have a white noise machine, blackout curtains, and a humidifier.
