my son is 9 months old and has never been the picture child when it comes to sleep. however for the last three weeks it's been torture. He's up every two hours or less sometimes to feed sometimes just crying and last night he was up at 4 am (went to bed at 9) and was up for 2 hours, wide awake. I don't know what to do anymore. I thought it was his teeth because during the day he's also very cranky and has been for 3 weeks too but I'm not sure anymore because they still haven't poked through. (I can still feel 2 lumps on the top gums). Last night I was about ready to let him cry it out. At this age do they really NEED to feed 3-5 times a night or is it just habit? I'm going to the doctor tomorrow to make sure it's not an ear infection or anything and get her advice but I thought I'd see if anyone else had any recommendations. I'm just so tired. It's been 9 months of no sleep and i'm at the end of my rope. Help.
