My son keeps waking up.

My 2 and a half yr old son has always been an awesome sleeper but lately he wakes up in the middle of the night and cries until I go in and get him. When I go get him he wants to run around and play. Sometimes I will let him play for about 15 min and I'll read him a story ( in the past when he would go through phases when he would wake up this worked and he would go back to bed) but then I will put him back and he will cry and cry. Last night he cried for like 40 min until I went in. He is still in a crib (I could never imagine him staying in a toddler bed.) I think he is playing me, but at the same time he has been chewing on his finger so I wonder if he is getting another tooth. I'm not good at letting him cry it out it pulls at my heart, especially when he keeps saying "where's mommy?"

Not sure wat to tell u, except have lots of patience!!!!! When my daughter starting sleeping in her crib, she would cry until she fell asleep( she was in a bassinet until 3 months!) One night, i was so fed up of picking her up and going back and forth, i decided to sit next to her crib and left her in it. she was still crying but i padded her back, spoke softly to her, told her to go to sleep and she finally calmed down. I had to do that a few times, but it worked. Our kids are very smart, they know how to manipulate us, so we have to take control or else.......... Good luck to u!
