Suddenly crying when put in cot(1 Post)
Hi all wondering if anyone has experienced this or has any advice. My son is just coming up to 13 months. He was an awful sleeper until he was 8 months and moved his own room. He then started going down without fuss and sleeping through to 5 (lucky me). Anyway in the last 3 weeks he has started screaming when we put him in his cot- sometimes this will last a minute or two then he will stop and go to sleep, other times it will escalate and eventually after cuddles etc he will settle. I thought it would pass but it isn’t and seems to be getting worse. Has anyone experienced this?
We have a good solid bedtime routine, he naps well once asleep (2-2.5 hours a day) but does the same screaming thing before going to sleep, he gets about 12-14 hours sleep in a 24 hour cycle. He is a bit slower on the development side and this has coincided with him learning to pull to stand and starting to step along when holding furniture. I just don’t know why he cries the instant he is put in his cot- I know if I leave the room he will stop after a minute 90% of the time but I hate the feeling of him crying before going to sleep.
