My 13 mo old son and 25 mo old daughter sleep in the same room. Lately my son has been waking up around 4-4:30 every night and wont go back to sleep. I wait for a while then end up getting up and giving him some Motrin and his paci and he eventually goes back to sleep. I don't want to keep giving him medicine every night but I feel bad that he keeps my daughter awake with his fussing. I thought maybe it was his teeth but I can't see where any are coming in. Does anyone elses son do this? Please help if you have had this same thing happen or can give me any advice!

My son is 18months old,,he wakes up at least 4 times every single night. Usually has a bottle(watered down uice, milk), a diaer change, n then, EVENTUALLY, will go back to sleep. Sometimes it takes up to 2 hrs for him to go back to sleep....

does he have a wet diaper at all? have you tried changing him and putting him back to bed? my son did that for a while, didn't like being wet and would wake up screaming. I thought it was teeth til he pooped one night and after i changed him he went right back to sleep no problem.

Have you tried Melatonin?It is safer then Motrin :)
My son used to wake up at the same time every night,there is usually a reason tho... Can he communicate w/ you at all?(like pointing or answering yes or no)?
