He's been sleeping thru the night but about a couple of weeks before we moved he was teething and wouldn't sleep thru the night, but now we've been going thru this for a month and he wakes up at least once a night for over an hour.

I would get him into a set routine every night. I usually bathe my kids, then read them a story, then say their prayers. If you get him set in a pattern, it will usually help him sleep.

Just Stimulate Him Before Bed, Give Him A Nice Warm Bath (Use Johnson Night Time Bubble Bath And Lotion, Its Heaven Sent!), Lay Him In Bed and Let Him Fuss For A Little...The Key Is Getting Him On A Schedule

ROUTINE! ROUTINE! LOL Best way to handle it in my opinion. When we moved here last year from Germany, Justice (who was 2yrs old then) would wake up 2-3x night. Dinner at the same time - bath at the same time - maybe a book/toy - lights out the same time.. Hope this helps.

Thanks you all. I think that I go in too early. I can deal with him crying when he first goes down to bed. But in the middle of the night is hard bc he shares a room with his big sister. I just need to let him cry longer, I usually give in between 5-10 minutes. I'm going to work on getting this nipped this week bc it's killing my energy in the day.

Try feeding him a bigger dinner. I found out with my daughter she sleeps better at night with a bigger meal, making her fuller. She also was waking up in the middle of the night for no reason for about 2 hours. Finally my husband and I let her cry in her room for about 20-30 minutes. Most the time she would cry herself back to sleep. We figured out that she just wanted us to get her up and hold her while she slept. So we stopped and now she sleeps through the night!
