First - Merry Christmas to you an' your loved ones : )
I have a strange problem with my little one who is about 6.5 months old...
he takes 2 feeds during night. One around 12 am and the other around 4 am after which he goes back to sleep quite easily in seconds. But since last few nights after the 4 am feed - even though he wants to sleep, he is scratching his head very very harsly... I need to put my hand to protect his head , other wise he wakes up with so many marks on his forehead ( his nails are very sharp - mittens dont help, they are just superr sharp ! )
- he doesnt have dry skin as his skin / scalp are well oiled / washed...we use mustela body products
- if i wake him up completely by switching on the lights / talking to him , he stops scratching ....but as soon as he back asleep - he starts again !
- his stomach is full / diaper is okay ...
- Also, no such problems any other time of the day / night !
Any idea - why is this happening ?
