DS2 (nearly 7 months) is waking exactly an hour after I put him down for the night. He went through a phase of this about a month ago but would settle with a little shhh pat but this time he won't settle. He goes mad for a feed but still doesn't down settle if he gets one. Seems to be getting worse - last night I had to give up and bring him down stairs (DH away and I hadn't eaten and was sooo hungry). We do tend to end up co-sleeping most nights (in theory he is in a bedtime cot) so I don't know if this is a factor. Any ideas? Have to run and get DS1 now but would appreciate any theories.
Thanks Iggly Do you know I had the same thought about him being overtired and tried to put him down earlier - he woke up after 45 minutes today argh! At least he's broken the pattern . But yes he does totally crash out at bed time so maybe I'll persevere with the earlier bed time. Thing is he was my 'good' sleeper (DS1 was 13 months when he slept through) so I feel like I've broken him somehow. Crazy I know. He's currently asleep in the pushchair downstairs after me failing to settle him again.
SEVERAL MONTHS oh lord! See this is the problem he won't settle I really don't mind when they wake up, need something and then settle but I guess I'll just have to make sure I rush down and eat something pre-scheduled waking time then I'll be primed.
