My 5 month old has sstarted waking during the night every 30 minutes to an hour over the last 3 nights. I've been getting up to put his dummy back in his mouth, but is that creating a back habit. I just don't won't him to wake up fully from being upset.

I would say he is probley hungry. Try giving him a bottle with ceral before he goes to bed. I had to start my son on table food at 3 months, just gave him mashed pototoes and other easie foods to eat, or you might try baby food. Hopefully that will help him sleep throught the night!

My son passed through the same phase at about 5 months. It lasted a week or so and then he went back to full nights. Basically it was because he was teething, and another time since we had a heatwave here.

My little boy is just 5 months old and he has started waking again through the night. He was sleeping through, he only wakes once, sometimes twice but I think it is just a growth spurt, although, somtimes I wonder about it being cold - every 1/2hr though, dont know. Does he sleep if he is in bed with you? I dont co-sleep but it would be interesting to know if he is just hungry/cold etc. My little one has wiened himself from the dummy so cant help there, but im of the opinion that anything that works when you need sleep is worth doing! Good luck, at least we know this is only a phase and it will pass!

My little one (she is now 9 months) also went through a short stage like that and it ended up being that she was just getting cold and that is what woke her up. The dummy had fallen out when she had fallen asleep and I had assumed that she was waking up for the dummy.
