My perfect little sleeper from 8 weeks old has now begun to throw us a curve ball. A little boy who used to reach for his blanket and crib, lay down nicely after giving us a kiss goodnight, bury his face in the blanket without a peep and fell asleep - has now started to cry upon being laid down for bed. He will stand to cry in the dark for a while before tossing his blanket outside the crib in protest. The nightly routine lately? Going in after 15 mins to retrieve his disgarded blanket because we know he won't settle down until he has it again. Then after we hand it back, lay him down once again - tell him "it's time to go night night".... he will fuss only a short while more... bury his face in his blanket and finally go to sleep. We do hear him throughout the night, light burst of cries which I really believe he is still in a sleep state... not actually awake.
Anyone else have this experience after more than a year of good bedtimes?
