Hello. My Kaiden was the sweetest little angle until about 2 weeks ago. He hardly ever cried unless he was tired and has been sleeping 10-12 hours straight at night since he was 6 weeks old. A few weeks ago this all changed. He can be so sweet one minute then screaming unconsolably the next. I 1st thought teething...although he already has 2 teeth....then i thought ear infection (went to the dr. ..that was negative)...then he had a bout of diarhhea so i thought teething or stomach virus....now he appears to be healthy but still wakes up between midnight and 2 am screaming at the top of his lungs. We tried to console him in various ways of which none of them worked. It has now reached the point that when he starts, he manages to throw every blanket, pacifier, rattle, or whatever else over the rail of the crib and across the room. Then my mom told me he may jsut be throwing a temper tantrum b/c he thinks it is time to play again. He has now gotten really effecient at crawling and pulling up and 1 1/2 weeks ago began walking along the furniture. I have read that some babies go through this when they begin to get very mobile. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do or was there an underlying cause?
