Since 6 weeks old, my son has been a great sleeper. At most he would wake up one time per night to eat, and that usually only happened once every couple of weeks. But, since he turned 9.5 months old, he's been waking up 2 - 5 times a night. Sometimes he is hungry, sometimes he's fussy or upset and won't take a bottle. I don't know what is wrong with him. During the day he is fine and he has no problem napping - usually 2 30-minute naps a day. The only time he seems to sleep well at night is when he sleeps in the bed with my husband and I. We've only done this a couple of times, when we were desperate. I am NOT a fan of co-sleeping for many reasons, and I don't want that to become the status-quo.
I spoke with a nurse at the pediatrician's office and she suggested giving him a "luvy" (favorite toy or blanket) to comfort him while he sleeps. But, he doesn't have a luvy. Any advice? Is this normal?
