I'm worried about my son who's 5 an a half months old. he wants to sleep all the time! he goes to bed at 8.30pm, wakes about 2.30am and then again at 7. he usually stays awake for an hour and then goes back to sleep until 10.30-11am. He will wake up for about 90 minutes and then want to sleep again! If he only gets 30 mins he will scream for 2 hours until he goes back to sleep. He is only happy if he gets 3-4 hour naps in the afternoon. Then in the evening he will be awake for 2 hours and then back to sleep again. He struggles to stay awake for longer than an hour and when he is awake (even after a long nap) he is very very grumpy! I know they still need a lot of sleep but he hates being awake at the moment and this has been going on for at least 4 weeks now. Has anybody got any ideas or gone through this themselves???
