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 18 month old son got upset and when he was crying passed out for a few seconds. When will he grow out of if? Is it normal? What can I do to prevent

Breath holding: This a very common phenomenon at children your child's age. It is brought on by the child' frustration in not getting his way. Rest assured, he will start breathing again because of breathing center in his brain. Walk away, although it may be hard. If he doesn' t have an audience he will stop performing. ...Read more

I have an 11 month old, and every night she constantly is crying and whining she also wakes up more then twice for similac thru out the night normal ?

Habit/separation: At that age they have no need to eat at night but if you offer it, the feeding clock re-sets and it will likely drive night waking the next night.Babies wine and cry at that age when they separate, because they realize how important you are to them and if they can't see you you might leave forever. Its a stage they can pass through if you let them. Offer only water at night until she stops waking ...Read more

My 9 month old is constantly waking up at night crying in pain. I know he's teething, but could it be from switching from rice to oatmeal cereal?

My 9 month old is constantly waking up at night crying in pain. I know he's teething, but could it be from switching from rice to oatmeal cereal?

Probably not teeth: It is unusual for teething to cause enough discomfort to awaken a child from sleep, unlike ear infections. His crying at night could be due to some separation fears which often arise at this age. I doubt the cereal change is causing pain unless there is significant constipation. Try soothing him with a transition object like a blanket at bedtime and it may help during the night. ...Read more

About : About 10% of children develop fever and fussiness after the infant series' of shots at 2, 4, and 6 months. Typically the fever lasts up to 24-36 hours and the pain and fussiness should resolve in 1 day. That can be treated with acetominophen every 4 hours.

My 5 month old son wakes from sleeping screaming and crying often as if he's had a bad dream. He stops after we calm him. Is it nightmares, possibly?

If your pediatrician: Says your son is healthy, growing well & developing typically, establish a consistent bedtime & routine. Read, rock, wipe out his mouth after the last feed, & put him in his own bed, drowsy but awake, without bottle or pacifier, to learn to self-calm to fall asleep & fall back to sleep when he night-wakes. See the aap's healthy child app for more tips to prevent "trained night crying" @ 6 mos. ...Read more

What's the best way to get a 17 month old to sit still while having his teeth brushed? Our son simply won't sit still while we try to brush his teeth, crying, screaming, and squirming everywhere. He moves around so much that i feel like our attempts at br

Turn : Turn brushing into a game. There are some new brushes that are battery operated with flashing lights. In fact some brushes will play music if you brush long enough. Let your child brush first and then you follow up. Do it every day without fail. Your child has to get used to it. If they cry and fight you, eventually they won't. This will prepare them for a visit at the dentist. ...Read more
