My 21 month old son has never slept through the night. I've seen a neurologist and was told it was a behavioral thing. I dont think so. It was really really tough a few months ago when my son was waking every hour on the hour for awhile. But what really bothers me is when He wakes up 30 min after going to sleep at night to wake up hysterical, burp, throw up then will go to sleep shortly after cleaning Him and calming him down. He's only like this at night. I hate being told its a behavioral thing because I just feel its something else. He doesn't get sick every night. I notice this happening more on the nights he may drink more or if he doesn't burp well, but even still it's to hard to predict the night. I switched him to lactose free milk and it seemed to help. He does use a bottle at night. He doesn't use a pacifier and doesn't suck his thump. The bottle is the only thing helping sooth him. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I don't want him to keep throwing up. I get less sleep because I never know what's going to happen each night. Please help!
