I am wondering if any body has experienced this with their 4 month old.
My son was sleeping through the night for the last month, from about 10pm until 5 or 6am. Then this past Monday he caught some sort of bug. He had a low grade fever and would not sleep at all. He was up all day and all night being very restless. I brought him to the doctor and she checked him out and said maybe he has some sort of virus. He was weak but he never lost his appetite which was good. I took him back to the doctor on Wednesday and she looked at him again and said he looked really good he was fine.
Well he still won't sleep through the night he gets up at 2-3 times a night now and still seems a little on the weak side.
He also is drooling a ton and chewing on his hands like crazy! The doctor said that he is not teething but maybe he is feeling some pressure on his gums. So I am not sure if this would keep him at night. because he was doing this before but still sleeping through the night. I als give him cereal before bed along with a 5oz bottole. Any advice would be great because I am a little confused. Is he sick and the doctor is over looking it or is it something else? Thank you again!
