Piran has always been a great sleeper at night, going to bed with minimum fuss at 6pm each evening, we put him down awake and he puts himself to sleep. Up until he was 16 weeks he would then always have a bottle at 10pm and another at 3am, going straight back down after each bottle then woke around 7am.
The past three weeks however have been a bit different, the 10pm feed has become sometime between 11pm and midnight, and he then sleeps through until I wake him up at 7am. This is all lovely.
However, almost every night, sometime between 9.30 and 10 he wakes up and screams. Real tears, full on wailing. It usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to calm him down.
We took him to the doctor and there is nothing wrong that they can see. We have given calpol before bed, we have given it when he wakes but neither makes any noticiable difference. He is not hungry. One night I tried to let him just cry to see if he would go back to sleep but he just worked himself into a real state.
So, has anyone got any suggestions on how we can deal with this, what we should do? Anyone else had this and found the cause? I just want him to be happy.
Like he is here, looking at his very first snowy morning!
