My 1 year old son wakes up anywhere from 5-10 times through the night, every night. Sometimes he cries, sometimes he screams, but he always goes right back to sleep. At first I was thinking night terrors, my daughter went through them when she was around 3, but didn't have them near as frequent. What bothers me though is while he is falling asleep, right before he totally passes out, he'll scream really loudly. I am living with my mother and her boyfriend, and I know lack of proper sleep can cause night terrors. Him and I sleep in the living room, where we have no privacy, and people come in and out starting around 6 am and can't keep their mouths down. My mother stays up at all hours of the night on her laptop, which is located in the living room. So the constant clicking of that and her laughing real loud, getting up and down, etc, also tends to disturb our sleep.
What can I do to help him sleep through the night properly again? I've already begged for them to shut up and stop doing things that don't allow us to sleep, but they don't care that it's disrupting his sleep and that they are the cause for all this.
