We have 7 month old boy and girl (and a 4 year old girl). All sharing a bedroom. Recently baby girl started sleeping through the night consistently, however our baby boy is waking at night and finding it difficult to settle him to sleep. Became worse when he had a cold about 3 weeks ago, and hasn't improved since. Sometimes won't settle for a few hours or sleeps very lightly. Sometimes seems to have tummy pain as kicks legs and arches back. Usually settles to a sound sleep about 4 am - then I am ready for the girls to wake around 6am!
Also sometimes not settling better when I hold him or breast feed - can be better if I put him in the rocker and turn on the TV (much as I hate to do that!) so I do not think controlled crying would be effective. They have started solids - girl eats everything - he is a bit less enthusiastic about some foods so I also wonder if he is hungry?!
Thanks for any suggestions.
