7 month old in pain at night

Not sure if this is the right place but am posting here in the hope of finding someone with a similar experience!

My 7 month old has always been an appalling sleeper, however he used to resettle easily after his (multiple!) night wakings whereas now he'll be awake crying, arching his back and seeming in pain. He also does this during the day to a lesser extent.

Anyway, I'm posting in Weaning as I've realised this new behaviour may correspond with introducing solids. could it be food intolerance of some sort does anybody think?? We're doing BLW so I've not been introducing foods in any systematic way and he does now seem to eat quite a lot, of pretty much everything!

Could it be that he's having trouble digesting the food?

It is unlikely to be this, but check his ears. DD2 had two years of broken sleep once her ears were sorted she was fine.

If he carries on arching with pain I would consult a doctor and have a check. It is hard as they cannot tell us what is wrong. Your GP will not mind.

Thanks. I will go to the GPs if it doesn't stop, could well be ears or something, who knows!
I agree it could be just trouble digesting food in general. It's strange though as the main time he seems in pain is at about 4am... and to be honest his biggest meals are breakfast and lunch. Maybe I'm overthinking it all anyway - you know what sleep deprivation will do to you!

See HV or GP soonest. It might be some sort of illness as already mentioned or it may be something as simple (?!) as night terrors.

Have a google of askdrsears 31 ways to get your baby to sleep, and was just wondering if you've changed his milk recently?
