Hi Stephanie and Nyrrek, at least i'm not alone. Yes his gums are quite hard and he is constantly chewing on his hands or if i try and move his hands away as he sometimes gets a bit carried away and chokes on them he grabs for my hand in lightening quick time and chews on them. So i guess that your right it could be his teeth. I hope that all of our "night owl bubs" return to their normal routine soon. It's getting to the point that my body clock wakes me up about 5 minutes before he does now, i lay in bed and just wait for his call "MUM GET UP!!!, I WANT FOOD NOW!!!!" is what i bet it would translate to. If only they invented baby language translators. I'm sure it would make our lives all that bit easier.
I'll be thinking of you guys tonight at 12, 3 and 6 gasp)
