What to do?

My almost 4 year old is possibly teething - has all the signs. The trouble is - he is not sleeping well - waking up every 1 1/2 - 2 hours. I let him in my bed last night and he did pretty well. I don't want him to rely on that though, but I can't keep up this sleep pattern for very long - any suggestions?

  • He needs you, he is hurting. Follow your child's needs and you cannot go wrong.

  • I thought my son was teething at 3/4 months but it turned out he wasn't even though he had all the signs he didn't cut his 1st tooth til 7 months. Try a warm bath and maybe some baby tylenol before bed. also try to put the baby to bed sooner I know if my son is over tired it is a battle all night long with him waking up every few hours. If that doesn't work try keeping the baby up alittle longer and really playing to help get the baby tired. g/l
