Why is my 11 month old waking up in the middle of the night?

My son the past week has been waking up at 3:30 am on the dot. Why is he doing this? He is not hungry, just wants to be held & rocked. He doesn't fall back asleep in my arms, just sits on my lap with his head in my chest. He will just lay there for an hour if I would let him. Has anyone else gone thru this and how do I stop this?

  • yes, i have one that wakes at 3:30 or 4. its awful.he just wants to gte out andplay... i leave him in there, as long as he doesnt sound distresssed. if he does, i check on him, rock him a bit, then lay him back down. some days he doesnt go back to sleep and it is a rough day...
