My son is almost six months old and he is constantly waking up in the middle of the night wanting to play. It usually happens around 3:30 - 4:30 and last an hour. It started out occasionally when he was about 4 months which I attributed to the "4 month wakeful period" thing. He would wake up in the middle of the night every 4 or 5 days at first. Then it became more like every 2 or 3 days and now it's been every night for past 9 days. He just wants to "talk" to me, give me kisses and touch my face. It's really sweet but tiring. If I ignore him or leave him in his bed he gets really upset and cries but I'm afraid that by giving in I'm making it a habit of it. Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do? Any advice? Thanks!
