My 8 month old boy has always been a good sleeper, he naps well during the day and sleeps from 7pm until 8am. My only problem is that he wakes up almost every night after an hours sleep and most of the time he will scream for an hour(sometimes a minutes shushing gets him back over but not always), sometimes it seems he just wants company and at other times he's inconsolable. I don't know what to do and wondered if anyone had any advice on how to tackle this.
I don't really know. The first things that occurred to me were:
overtired - but you say he naps well
disturbed by too much freedom - but he's already in a sleeping bag
rolling and you perhaps trying to get him to keep sleeping on his back - but you say he can roll back and and has a sleeping position that he maintains.
So I don't really know what to suggest. Although I did cc with my children, I wouldn't want to plunge straight into it before being certain that there isn't any other reason for the waking. Could he be teething? Does he have a cold? Could he have earache or tummyache? The fact that he's waking and screaming for an hour puzzles me - and suggests that cc might be a little tough.
Does he go to sleep on his own, or do you lull him to sleep?
