My baby keeps waking up crying at night. He is 8 months old. What should I do?

Sleeping problems: Try to establish bedtime rituals to help him fall asleep properly. Try to do the same things every night. If your child falls asleep and then wakes up at night, wait 3-5 minutes, then go to his room and calm him down without picking him up or feeding him. If calms down, leave him. If wakes up again, wait 10 minutes and go to his room and do the same thing. Next time he cries, wait 20 minutes ...Read more

Why is my ten month old son waking up crying every hour at night?

Why is my ten month old son waking up crying every hour at night?

Doctor to evaluate: A ten month-old baby who starts crying hourly at night has a problem and should see his doctor. The problem could be ear pain, throat ulcers, head ache, tummy pain, tight clothes, fever, or something else that's preventing him from staying asleep. He may be starting a new viral or bacterial illness. If he is much better in the morning, that is reassuring, but his doctor needs to evaluate him. ...Read more

My 2 month old sleeps for 7 hours at night. She never wake up for feeding. Should I forcefully wake her up and feed?

My 2 month old sleeps for 7 hours at night. She never wake up for feeding. Should I forcefully wake her up and feed?

Let babies sleep...: If she is happy and growing, leave her alone. After 3 months of age, parents can give a feeding at 10 p.m. or thereabouts, and expect the baby to sleep 6 hours. If a normal baby sleeps 6-8 hours and is fine the next day, she'll eat enough during the day to make up for sleeping all night (and parents will sleep well at night, too). A normal 2-month baby sleeping well at night means lucky parents. ...Read more

Flipped pattern: This is common to parents who believe they should let baby sleep during the day if they had a bad night. Babies are pattern creatures and this continues until you stop it. Try waking every hour during the day for a minimum of five minutes and leaving alone at night, the pattern should reset within a week. ...Read more

Gut issues: Discuss this with your pediatrician. Things that cone to mind are #1 diet...If you are breastfeeding are you drinking milk or eating dairy (it is very irritating to the guts of infants).

Almost 3 mnth old formula fed daughter has poop in almost every diaper, extremely uncharacteristically fussy, inconsolable, spitting up frequently...?

Almost 3 mnth old formula fed daughter has poop in almost every diaper, extremely uncharacteristically fussy, inconsolable, spitting up frequently...?

Tough situation!: Oh you poor thing- you must be so worried! And tired! The part that strikes me as most concerning is that this is unlike her. We'd agree that it's normal for babies to cry, babies at this age can be very colicky. I'm not worried about the diapers, maybe she's coming down with a virus. Check her temperature and if > 100.3 rectally, if bloody or dark green vomit, take her to the ER please. ...Read more

When my 16 month old is sleeping she suddenly starts crying and wakes up.?

Terror vs nightmare: Night wakings of this nature are generally due to one of two issues. If a kid wakes up crying or seems to be struggling & whimpering & wakens immediately to light touch, they are having a nightmare. If they don't wake with light touch, but continue to struggle it is a night terror.This is a deep sleep issue common to kids with sleep deficits. Increasing nap/sleep periods over time can resolve it. ...Read more

My 7 months baby wakes up at night couple of times. We feed him and he sleeps. Does he wake up bcoz he is hungry? Or are we overfeeding him?

My 7 months baby wakes up at night couple of times. We feed him and he sleeps. Does he wake up bcoz he is hungry? Or are we overfeeding him?

He awakens because: He's a "trained night feeder." healthy babies over 6 mos. Don't need night feeds, ; are old enough for learned behaviors. If you read to him, feed, brush his teeth or wipe off his gums, then put him to bed drowsy, but awake, he'll learn to self-calm for sleep-onset ; for night-waking. If you consistently ignore night-crying. It increases at first, then stops. See healthychildren.Org for tips. ...Read more

I 'am concerned about her.

Talk with her: Sleeping more can be due to a lot of different problems and conditions. One is depression and so i would talk to her directly first and let her know you are worried. It is also not a bad idea to ask her if she would be willing to go and see a doctor, especially if she has not had a check up in more than a few months. ...Read more
