One year old not sleeping all night!

My son is almost 1 and he has started waking up 2-3 times a night just crying and it takes me a good 30 minutes to get him back down. Any thoughts to what is making him wake up? Its almost like he just wants Mommy to hold him.

There are numerous possible causes for repeated night waking at this age. It could be teething, it could be mild separation anxiety, and it could be bad dreams.

Where it's every night, it's probably not bad dreams. My only advice is to ride it out, and when you DO go in to see him, keep the visits as brief and as boring as possible, so that he's not getting a whole lot of incentive to keep waking up like that.
