Wakes up screaming every morning @ 5am

My lil 4 month old guy wakes up every morning at 5am. sometimes he'll sleep all night and other nights he will wake up every hour, but he always wakes up at 5am. I could have changed him @ 4:15... feed him at 4:30 and he will still wake up. He screams and screams for like 10 to 20 mins. He will scream if I hold him or leave him in bed... then he will stay awake... why does he do that.. how do I prevent it? Any ideas?? Thx

Unfortunatly you can not prevent that from happening. Sometimes it can just be the thought of you not being there, other times in can be just wanting attention. My 6 month old did that too at 3am.....If you have a monitor, try turning it off. Trust me you will still hear him scream.. Sometimes babies just need to scream....he could be lone;y, have gas or just be fussy....it is normal....and one more thing parents need to endure.....Good Luck
