My 8 1/2 almost 9 month old whines & cries in his sleep at night-he is not awake when this happens. This has been happening for the past couple of months. I have not asked the dr. about it yet but I might have to at his checkup next week. Most of the time it happens after 1-2 hours of him going to sleep. Sometimes he'll turn over from his back or side to his stomach and whine but he's still asleep or sometimes he'll actually wake up, sit up & start crying. Is this a phase or something else going on? He's a very happy baby & we really don't have any trouble out of him. He's crawling & pulling himself up on everything but also starting to show his temper when we take something away from him that he doesn't need or move him from a place he has crawled to that he doesn't need to be. He's teething-two bottom teeth in, one more coming in & top two are coming in so this makes him a little whiny too.
