Not sleeping well at night

Marihett - posted on 11/27/2009 ( 3 moms have responded )




My son is 10 months old & it's driving me nuts, he goes toe bed at about 20h30/21h00. Anything from 01h00 he will wake up crying every hour on the hour. He get onto all fours or just sit in his bed, a very heartfelt cry.

He use to sleep very well. He slept through from about 5 weeks until he got his first 2 bottom teeth in October, now the sleeping pattern changed.

Do anybody have the same problem & what can I do to get my son sleeping well?

Have you tried sleeping with your baby? My baby boy who is almost 10 months old now would wake up every hour when he was a newborn so I brought him into bed with us. That way I could nurse him lying down and continue to get rest. He also slept much better as he knew that I was right there close to him. It is a very sweet thing to be able to look down and see your little baby sleeping soundly right next to you. It is definitely worth it.

Is he teething? maybe he is getting his top teeth? I really feel for you as my son also was (is) a horrible sleeper (he use to wake up every 20mins until he was 10 months old and then we had to get a sleep nurse in as I was just about to have another baby...)
We tried the control crying thing which was horrible (for all of us) and didn't really work, we tried giving him water at night, we tried rocking him to sleep, we tried patting him back to sleep all the time... and nothing really worked lol. I just resigned myself to the fact that he was just one of those babies that didn't sleep! He is now 15 months old and still wakes up all night, it's a bloody nightmare. Lucky our 5 month old is a good sleeper! Sorry I haven't been much help lol. I hope you get some sleep soon .....
