For the past week or so I´ve been having some problems sleeping.,... My one year old keeps waking up at 4 am craying saying OUCH! but he won´t say or point where it hurts. During the day he is fine, but at night is when he says that. I´ve tried making him tired and not letting nap that long during the day, giving a shower before bed but it doesn´t work.

I don´t know what else to do, because he doesn´t seems to be in pain and I wonder what wakes him up?

Well he goes to sleep usually around 11:30. I´ve tried not picking him up and making him lay back but he will start crying more and more. He knows that I´m next to him because he sleeps in our room ( not on the same bed).

Well, first get him checked by his doctor for anything serious. Barring that, he may be teething or hungry. It could be bad dreams. Comfort him (do not pick him up) and tell him it is not time to be awake yet. Get him to lay back down and settle with a fave thing and tell him you will see him when it's time to get up. You could also try just letting him try to settle himself first and not go in to him for a few nights.



You don't say what time he goes to bed, but you might try putting him to bed a little later. It may slide his wake time to a bit later.



I hope that helps. Good luck.
