So my DS is almost 12months. he has had a great schedule sleep wise until just a few days ago. his normal routine is bedtime at 8. he half wakes up at 11/12 for a bottle and then again at 4/5 and then wakes up around 8 plays until breakfast at 9... but the past few days he has been waking up at 2 on the dot just crying like he is in pain. I usually bring him into bed with me (his pack n play is right next to the bed.) to get him to calm down and snuggle. he then tosses and turns like he cant get comfortable and cries and falls asleep for a few minuets then wakes up screaming tosses around then falls asleep for a few min repeat until about 4 when he wakes up fully and wants a bottle then is fine. at first I thought it was gas so I rubbed his tummy and peddled his legs. nothing... the only thing that seems to help is if I massage his hips and low back and patting his bottom. I've also checked for leg cramps but nothing there either. any advice? he has just recently started taking his first unassisted steps. could this be growing pains or just new use of his muscles with walking? I just find it odd that it happens at the same time every night. needless to say this is killing me on sleep as I am also almost 12 weeks pregnant.
