  • It could be molars coming in , growing pains or night mares, all common causes of night waking at this age.

  • Is it at the same time each night? could be night terrors if so. Or just bad dreams. IF it's stressful or new situations during the day, he could be dreaming about them. Baby's way of dealing. Could be teething or a growth spurt and he's just really hungry. hard to tell w/o more details. Any pulling at the ears?

  • My son is 18 months and has never been a sleeper. He has always gotten up 1-3 times a night cries out for milk and then goes back to bed. Some times he will scream for 10 min. or so and we have no idea why I wish there was an answer for that.
