It's usually 24deg at night here so getting cold is not an issue, and he sleeps without covers & a fan on as we do.
He always wakes around 9 -10pm, midnight, and early hours of the morning. Sometimes just a drink of water settles him, sometimes he cries for a little while, and other times he's very persistent crying off & on for an hour! I judge wether to attend to him by what kind of cry he makes, and I try to give him a chance to settle back to sleep himself most of the time.
I realise that last week he has been sick, and at some other times it is likely due to teethng, but it still shouldn't happen all the time!
Getting to sleep generally isn't a problem, and he doesn't have a dummy anymore, we eliminated it about a month ago as I thought that was a likely problem, but the waking has continued since.
So any ideas out there would be greatly appreciated. Or tell me of your similar experiences and at what age you have overcome this problem. I need some hope that he will start sleeping through before our next one comes along, or ideas on how I can help encourage him to.
Would seeing somebody at a child health centre be a good idea?
Thanks in advance,
