My son was sleeping from 630/7 until 130/2 until his first feed. He would feed and then go back to sleep for another 3.5-4 hrs. Until two night ago he has started waking back up at 10 for a feed, then 1, then 330. After his 330 feed he is super difficult to get back down. I feel like we were making progress and now all of a sudden I feel like I have a newborn. What do ya'll think this is? He is super slobbery, fists in mouth all the time. Could he be trying to cut teeth? Any suggestions?

I have a 4 month old and I was told to take some Rubitussin(spelling) and put it in the fridge and dap it on your finger like you do purfume and rub it on the baby gums. But it has to be cold. This is from a doctor!

i agree with Tiffany!! teething and growth spurts. My daughter has been doing this for about a month and she is just over 4 months olds. Good luck.

It is a very good possibilty that he could be teething, and teeth take a while to come down, it could also be a growth spirt, my youngest daughter now 15mo was up at weird times for the 1st 1yr and it was growth spirts, gas, and then teeth she had 8 teeth by 10 mo old, and didn't want to chew, she just wanted to suck so she was feeding alot. my suggestion would be cold/ frozen cloths, teething rings, and there may be a few extra feeding required, its soothing.

Sounds like teething. Try some tylenol after feeding and before putting him back down. Good luck!
