Variety of issues: I put night issues into context with age, time of night & response to intervention. The 6-9mo may be experiancing separation anxiety & fear you are gone forever- if they are awake when you check & settle when they see you, it fits. The baby that struggles in early sleep & doesn't awaken to light touch may have a night terror. The same scene later pm but awakening quickly can be a nightmare.
