Hi everyone , was wondering if someone could help me out I've got a 11 month old since he was 3 months old he has self soothed hisself to sleep and slept 12 hours a night but lately due to teething he has been a nightmare wants to be rocked won't sleep if I leave the room, wakes during the night crying I have tried doing the crying out method and when it's half 3 in the morning you just find it hard.. He won't stop crying until he gets in our bed which is a huge problem because my partner has to sleep elsewhere. Would be great if someone could give me advice :) & he's not teething anymore which makes it worse

When our son is teething he wakes up at night too. You could try giving him some infant Tylenol just before bedtime? Or some orajel teething gel might help too. Also I would make it so that sleeping in your bed isn't an option especially in the future since it's a problem you just want to avoid him needing to sleep with you to get to sleep, you could try laying him down in his crib after the Tylenol has kicked in or the orajel has relaxed him and sit in the room with him till your sure he's asleep. Our son also falls asleep to one of those things with the lights and it sings or plays music, maybe that will help him sleep better too, also when our son wakes up at night we just let him cry and fall back asleep on his own, if you go in there he can get used to that and he will keep waking up and demanding for you to come in to him. When we let our son cry because he wakes up in the middle of the night he cries less than 5 minutes, he gets up and turns on his music thing on his own, lays down and goes back to sleep

Hi, it's hard being a mom some kids are more independent then others. I say show that love my oldest was always in our bed n he's 2 n a half now n sleeps in his own bed with no problem. Adjust baby is mort important it's not about being spoiled either. He's trying to tell u he wants you .
