Nightmares occur in a light sleep state so baby is aware of you immediately if you check them.

Occasionally some show extra separation fear at points in development. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 6.5 m old. He was a great sleeper but since i started feeding him, he started waking up at night crying hysterically.Why is this happening?
Transition: Between 6 and 9 months babies have an emotional awakening.They realize their primary caregivers are special and become anxious if they are not present.This separation anxiety often alters sleep patterns. A periodic visit at night to let them see you did not vanish is helpful.I would check him from a distance and revisit every 5-10 min until he settles back to sleep. This is a normal stage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby boy is 16 months old, he still wakes up more than 10 times at night (recently he started to wake up crying). What should I do?
Poor Sleep Habits: Poor sleep hygiene is not uncommon in toddlers. Many toddlers have difficulty transitioning back to sleep once awake. Try to refrain from feeding or taking him it out his bed when he wakes up. Also try using a toy or blanket to provide security and comfort to help him transition back to sleep when he wakes up. Get his doctor involved to rule out any medical concerns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My breastfed baby started waking up at 6months, 1 time per night, now at 1year& he wakes up 4 times per night. What should I do& what is the reason?
The reason is most..: ....Likely that he has come to understand that when he awakens and calls out, you come into the room. A 1 year old doesn't need to feed 4 times a night if he's eating well in daytime. Check to make sure he's ok (dry, not feverish etc.), then don't pick him up or otherwise indulge him. If he's physically ok, leave the room. Expect him to scream. He needs to learn to self soothe. ...Read more

If your child has had a cold, perhaps he/she has an ear infection.Please call your child's doctor to discuss and possibly see. ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My five year old daughter has coughing fits at night. She caughs a little during the day but it's worse at night. It's been going on for about 2 weeks?
Post nasal drip: Her cough is probably due to a post nasal drip. During the day she can handle the secretions by sneezing or blowing her nose. At night she is lying flat in bed and the mucus drips down and iritates her respiratory tree. Elevate her mattress so she is sleeping on an angle and uses vaporizer for her. ...Read more
