For the past two nights our 14 month old has gotten up at 11pm which is unlike him. His bedtime is 7. Nonetheless I give him a bottle and change his diaper. Usually he'd fall asleep right after but that's not happening. He'll cry endlessly. I hold him, and he stops. He then falls asleep in my arms and when I go to lay him in his crib he goes ballistic. This same process continues for some time. Out of sheer exhaust I finally break down and take him in my bed and he falls asleep on my chest. He'll stir a little bit and then he's awake again. He then wants to play.
Finally I lay him in his crib and stay with him in his room. He eventually cries himself to sleep which is around 4am!
But then he's wide awake at 6:00am?
His molars are coming in but don't think its teething because he'd be in pain and fussy during the day as well if that was the case.
My husband said maybe it has to do with his development. In the past month he's started to walk.
Anyone else experience this? or have any thoughts to share on possibly why he keeps waking?
