Has anyone had a similar issue? I'm hoping its just another phase he's working through.
My son is 7 1/2 months and for the past week and a half he's been waking up between 3 and 4 and fighting sleep. He'll take a bottle, look like he's going to go back out, maybe even go out for a few minutes then the crying starts. I've tried letting him cry it out.... but he gets so hysterical that i don't even think he realizes i'm trying to sooth him once in awhile. I've tried rocking him... but even just being in the laying position in my arms makes him freak out. up right position also for that matter. And I don't think he's still hungry... he'd take bottle after bottle if we offered it though cause sadly thats the only way to comfort him (we created a monster like that). I even wondered if I'm putting him to bed to early and he's just awake. But that leaves him with 7 or 8 hours at night. and he's not a good napper either for him to be getting to much sleep.
it'll take about 2 hours to get him back down and by then I need to get up for work. Only thing that has worked is pulling him into bed with us once we get him calmed down. But I don't want to start another bad habit on top of all our other ones haha.
