My 5 month old, fairly alright sleeper has for the past 4 nights woken anywhere between 40 mins to 1hr 30 after being put to bed. He wakes crying loudly and gets more and more hysterical until we eventually give him another bottle which he drains and goes to sleep! He in inconsolable otherwise.

He has never had a big appetite and giving him a bigger bottle before bed doesn't work so I don't think it's a hunger thing.

We have a good routine, I still do need to put him down asleep however but we are planning to sleep train in the next few weeks.

He naps really well in the day, normally two 1.5 hour naps.

Any ideas or tips or stories of babies who went through this phase greatly appreciated!!

Sounds like a development leap

@LouiseTrees oooo he is going through leap 5 on wonder weeks, I've never paid much notice before! Hopefully it will pass soon!
