My baby boy is about 7 months and a week old. He has been sleeping through the night since around 3 and 1/2 months. All of a sudden a couple weeks ago he has started waking up in the middle of the night atleast once but usually its 2 or 3 times. When I go to pick him up he is really crying hard but his eyes are closed almost as if he's still asleep. If i pick him up he goes back to sleep in my arms but usually wakes up when i lay him back down. If i just leave him in the crib he becomes fully awake anyway. So most nights I am spending atleast 3 hours picking him up and laying him back down. Its hard for me to sleep because I am worried he is going to wake up any second. And honestly its starting to worry me because of how he seems to almost still be asleep but he is crying. Has anyone ever experienced this? And if so, What did you do to fix it? The sleep deprivation is really starting to get to my husband and I.
