our 11 months old baby seem to be waking up around 9pm every day screaming.
we follow consistent routine and he seem to be a sleep before 8pm.
He generally sleeps one nap 30-60 minutes and sometiems second nap 30 minutes during the day.
Recently he started waliking up screaming almost like he is having nigtmares. He would be a bit difficult to calm at this stage.

Generally after 10pm he sleeps until 5am when we give hime formula milk and he resumes sleep until 7am.
Has anyone expirenced similar?

I would appreciate your expiriences.

Many thanks

Hello there...I used to find that my babes had a witching hour each. That is patterns that they would follow, hard to break, hard to live with but they do pass. Chat to your health visitor...its good that he goes from 10pm through to 5am though...

Hope you get lots of advice...

Mine cries in her sleep nearly every night exactly a hour after she goes down. Sometimes she wakes with wind sometimes settles back down herself.
Weird that its always an hour after it must be something to do with digesting last feed

DS does this when he's over-tired. You could try increasing daytime sleep or earlier bedtime.

Agree with Knifeupthedance, I had a similar problem and read that this kind of sleep pattern can be the result of overtiredness. Try and extend of the naps (I know, not easy) or try and earlier bedtime.
