Was a nightmare sleeper for the first 5 months, but since then, has mostly slept 7pm-5.30/6am, which we have accepted and thought ourselves quite lucky.
In the last two weeks, this seems to have gone out if the window. He is waking up numerous times a night, distressed and crying out. He can only be soothed by being held close. He'll drift off like this, but screams the second I put him back in the cot.
He had previously been a dream settling himself.
The same is now happening for daytime naps too.
He has also taken to waking for the day between 4 and 5am. Could be the clocks changing, but he is going to bed as normal at 7pm.
He is definitely teething, not eating much the last few days, but still having his milk.
I am routinely giving him teething granules, bonjela, and often calpol too before bed.
He started nursery 2 months ago, and I wonder if he has got used to communal sleeping, and is possibly waking up frightened?
Any ideas anyone? DH and I starting to look and feel as shattered as the early newborn days again.
Any positive stories? I'm hoping it's just teeth, or a short lived regression??
