Sounds like what all 3 of my boys do when my husband returns from work everyday. It could be because he sees you all the time but not daddy. Which is my problem that I have with my boys and with tax season coming up they won't see daddy except maybe for a few hours on the weekends. Hopefully your son will get back on course hon. Good Luck!

idk he's been teething since he was a month old....when his dad got home the first month my husband couldn't even touch me or sit near me on the couch without my son having a huge fit and if we did sit next to each other he had to be right in between us and night time if his dads home from work at bed time he fights me to go to sleep...i'm not trying to blame my husband being home as the problem bc the baby will have to get over it but its been almost three months since his return and he's yet to sleep all night once.....

teething? My 9 month just finished cutting some teeth and is back to sleeping through the night.

it depends on the type of fussiness it is sometimes i do other times i can rock him back to sleep.

Are you feeding him when he wakes up? Usually cutting out the night feedings will take care of it.
