For the past 2-3 weeks, my 6 month old son has started to have a bit of trouble going to sleep. He's pretty much always been excellent at going to sleep when it's bedtime, so I'm not sure what the issue is all of a sudden. Around 8:30pm, we give him his bath and then we give him his bottle. After his bottle we lay him in his crib and he used to go to sleep in less than 5 minutes. Now we put him down & he'll roll around & stuff for a good 15-20 minutes before he finally falls asleep. Could this be a growth spurt? Maybe teething? Is this normal?

Yes, he wasn't aware or capable to toss about or be this alert before....don't know if this is a good thing but....my mom said to take a needle heat it up and make the nipple on the bottle just a wee bit bigger and put in a tsp of pablum....(I had a big baby and started this at 3 months) Dr. Said that's what most people do....didn't know that.
But, your child in another 2 months will be standing up on the rails bored as hell about going to sleep good luck
