My 8 month old daughter has been waking frequently at night. She doesn’t cry too often but when she wakes, she chews on her sleep sack until she falls back asleep. Sometimes she will chew/play with her sleepsack for an hour before falling back asleep. This could happen 2/3/4 times a night. Is this normal? I feel like if I take the sleepsack off she will still chew on her onesie. She’s very oral. Could someone advise please! I feel like she is chronically tired from all these wakings and in turn making her very fussy all day long I feel so bad for her and just want her to be a happy little girl.
Her typical schedule is out of crib at 7am but usually awake at 6am.
Nap 1 9/9:30-11/11:30 (typically 2 hours)
Nap 2 2/2:30/4 (typically 1.45 to 2 hours)
She also has been turning on her stomach while sleeping and then sleeping in a face planted position making me worried she isn’t breathing (but she is). I should note she is low tone (mild) and going to therapy too. Is it normal for some kids to sleep with their face into the mattress and how can I help her learn to put her head to the side? Thanks for ANY advice about both issues! So incredibly thankful for this resource.
