AHH! I am going crazy. My DS has been sleeping through the night since he was 5 months old. In these past 6 months I can probably count on one hand the number of time he's woken up in the middle of the night, and in those rare instances he would just "talk" to himself and roll/crawl around and then go back to sleep on his own. Well starting last Wednesday he has been waking up crying in the middle of the night, at first I thought it was because he had a bad cold last week and was uncomfortable with his stuffy nose. The first couple nighs=ts I was worried and checked his temp- nothing. Well he is better now, no cold symptoms anymore, seems totally fine during the day but he's still waking up screaming bloody murder every night around 2 or 3. WHat the heck?? He has never done this before. And he wont go back to sleep easily. Could this be teething? He has never reacted like this with his other teeth coming in (he only has 4). He has been rubbing his face. WHen I see him on the monitor he is rubbing his face into the mattress and getting really upset and then stands up and screams for me. Or maybe separation anxiety?? WHy is all of a sudden doing this at almost a year old??
