I'm new on here, and i am in need of any advice or ideas on this. I will give a little bit of background info to start off with. I'm a 24 year old mother living with my fiance and our son Jayden. Jayden will be 1 on the 25th. Jayden was born 4 weeks early, and is deaf in his left ear. He has been wearing a hearing aid since he was 3 months old, and we are working on teaching him some basic baby signs..Since we first brought him home, he has been a happy baby. He's always smiling, and playing. He's never been a crabby cry for no reason kind of baby, and he is very independent.
Now the problem. It all started about 3 weeks ago, and we have no idea why. Jayden will wake up screaming bloody murder, and he won't stop unless we hold him. As soon as we put him down, he crys until we pick him up. During the day, he is fine, he plays with his toys, and he is my independent not needing mom and dad son..It doens't mater if he sleeps in the living room for a nap on the floor, his crib, or our bed, he wakes up screaming. It's anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours into his sleep. Nothing has changed in our home, and he will sleep anywhere else as long as it is not our house.
I am lucky if i sleep 3 hours a night, and it's been to the point that the cops came out to our house because he wouldn't stop crying. We brought him to the doctor, and nothing is wrong..
We are at a loss for ideas, and anything is greatly appreciated.
