Researchers have found a connection between babies who have started to crawl and waking more frequently and for longer periods during the night. The study looked at 28 healthy babies and monitored their sleep and behavior patterns. They found that the average age babies began to crawl was 7 months, and this was accompanied by an increase in a number of times they woke during the night. The researchers hypothesized that the increased level of arousal due to crawling could cause a temporary period of instability and restlessness in the baby, which manifests in them waking at night.
