Why is Your Baby Waking Overnight?

This episode breaks down all the potential reasons your baby could be waking up in the night, so you can play detective and maybe even start to learn how to decrease those extra or "unnecessary" wake-ups.

We'll be covering things like:
- Hunger
- Illness
- Diapers
- Temperature
- Light vs. Darkness
- Bedtimes
- Daytime Sleep

And all the while, I'll be giving you tips on how to work around these potential issues.

**Disclaimer: Any reference to age refers to a baby’s true or adjusted age. This means that if a baby was born more than a week before his/her due date, it’s usually best to adjust their age based more on their estimated due date when it comes to expectations regarding being ready for certain things like solid food or reaching milestones - including sleep ones! 

Also, these tips are geared towards babies over 4 months of age. The reasons listed above for waking overnight can still be applied to newborns/infants (first 3 months), but it's important to never try to restrict or eliminate wake-ups for this age group.
