Hello. My 14 mo stopped night feeding a long time ago and although he still woke once in the night, we were still getting sleep & felt no longer sleep deprived. Suddenly, he has started crying around 5am and seems uncomfortable. He will only settle with a bottle so that's what we've been doing as it allows us at least 2 hours longer in bed. To be honest I don't really mind much but I'm just wondering why he might be waking. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Could it be a growth spurt?
Teething, ear infection, hearing a noise.... if you gove him a bottle, he is going to keep waking up for it as you are setting up a routine for him to wake up then. Can you gut out a few nights of shusshing or just some water in a cup?
