My son is 6 months old. He sleeps through the night except. Every night he wakes up between 9:30 and 10pm. He screams like he is scared or in pain and does this for about 10 minutes then goes back to sleep. I have checked his diaper and he dosen't want to eat and it's not enviromental. Anyone have anything similar to this. thanks

Maybe you can try giving him some pain meds one night when he goes down and see if he still wakes, sometimes they do it out of habit, I would advise not going in there one night and wait it out...I know it sounds horrible but my 2 children and been sleeping through since 6 and 8 weeks old, good luck :)

sure. I hope things get back to normal quickly for ya. It's been a couple of months since my little one has slept through the night on a consistent basis. We're working on it though :)

sometimes i let him cry it out and he will go back to sleep, usually i soothe him back to sleep because it dosen't sound like a normal cry it sounds like he is in pain so i usually go to him. Maybe it's teething. thanks for the advice

he might be teething or it might be gas. Does he just go back to sleep on his own or do you have to soothe him? He might wake up out of habit too. We're going through the same thing with my 7 month old. He's waking up between 2:30 and 3:30 am. We're trying to get him to cry it out. Sometimes it's teething, sometimes it's just habit. So we change his diaper, put orajel on his gums (or if we think it's gas, we give him gas drops), bounce him for a while to soothe him and then let him go back to sleep on his own in his bed. It took him a little over an hour to get back to sleep tonight with us going in every 15 minutes to let him know we're here. Poor guy :(
