All of a sudden he is waking 2 to 3 times a night and just screaming

Hi, my son is 15 months and most of the time has been a reasonable sleeper. All of a sudden the last 2 to 3 weeks he is waking 2 to 3 times a night and just screaming and screaming but when i go in he stops. I give him a few pats on the bum or stroke his hair saying sh sh sh to calm him down then wakl out and this could go on for an hr or more. I am 30 weeks pregnant and sooooo tired and this is draining me even more. I dont know what else to do? Can u pls give any suggestions as i really need this settled before baby comes.

Answer: Hi Rachae, It`s hard to say why the sudden change but it seems he is looking for your presence. I would try our It`s Time To Sleep settling techniques at this time as they offer a clear and repetitive message that it`s time to sleep. Although the protests can be a bit disrupting for a few nights, keep in mind that it is already disrupting your sleep and in a week you may all be sleeping better. You can get details from `Your Baby`s Sleep` or www.itstimetosleep.com Cheers, Maree
