Tips on helping 7month old baby sleep better?

Jessica - posted on 10/03/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son is 7 months old and a couple days ago started waking up every 2 hours in the middle of the night. He normally wakes up about twice a night but not 5 times a night. I was thinking maybe he is teething or going through a growth spurt my daughter has slept through the night ever since she was two months old. So i was just curious on what might be going on and what might help him out.

Teething, growth spurt, not feeling well.... there are many reasons why he might be doing this.

I just always breastfed my kids back to sleep when they would wake in the middle of the night... whether that was once or twice... or 5+ times. lol They do grow out of it. WHEN that happens depends on the kid. Actually... some people never sleep through the night, but the age that they need help to get back to sleep DOES come eventually.

Could be a growth spurt, or teething, or combo of both.

All kids are different. My eldest slept thru the night early on, and was always a better sleeper than his brother...LOL...with that one, I ended up doing all of the strange things I'd seen other parents doing (and swore I'd never resort to)...just to get him to sleep longer than 10 minutes!

The good news is...They usually grow out of it! Good luck
