Many reasons: Could be bad dreams. It could be something called night terrors; if he doesn't seem to know what's going on around him and he has no memory of the event in the morning, it might be this. Or maybe the room is cold.

Wake up when I hear my toddler crying during sleep, should I go to him?

It depends.: If your child isn't waking up during these episodes, he may be having night terrors. If so, the best things to do are to ensure there is nothing in his bed he can get hurt on, and keep him on a consistent sleep schedule. If he has a habit of waking and then crying, as long as he has no medical cause for this, it's best to see if he can put himself back to sleep. His doctor can advise. ...Read more

I was cleaning my toddler's ear when she started crying and saying it hurts.. That night when she's already sleeping i checked her ear and saw blood?

Likely scraped wall: The ear wax is created in the outer half of the canal and will fall out if left alone. Whatever you can scoop out with your fingernail under direct vision is fine to move. Otherwise, leave the ear alone. Any swab or q-tip placed in the canal can & will scrape the wall & make it bleed occasionally. It will also push the wax in so far it will never pack the ear drum.A visit can confirm the injury. ...Read more

Toddler was in a bath and got water in one of her ears. She immediately started crying but quickly stopped. It was a sharp pain. Why?

Toddler was in a bath and got water in one of her ears. She immediately started crying but quickly stopped. It was a sharp pain. Why?

Crying toddler: it is hard for bath water that splashes the face to get into the ear canal that is as small in diameter as a toddler's. With a cry that stopped with quickly, my best guess is it scared her and as soon as she realized there was no pain she stopped crying. ...Read more

Is it normal for 1 mo baby to wake up and crying almost every 2-3 hours ? What is the sign that a baby have lack of sleep ?

Yes, normal: That is how often 1 month olds want to eat and be cared for. They eat small amounts frequently to maintain their blood sugars and hydration because they are so small and don't have lots of reserves for doing those things. It will likely get better over the next few months, but for right now it is totally normally to wake every couple of hours. ...Read more
