  • maybe he is having night terrors..Just let him know he is safe & loved. Then allow him nto go back to bed. my 6 yr had these for her they were because she was overtired.

  • Maybe it is growing pains? Try massaging his legs, around his knees.. not too hard though. See if it helps.

  • My son has always done this too - since he was born. I hear of kids that wake up talking or cooing when they are babies but nope, I instantly know when my son wakes up cause he is crying. he turns 2 in 1 week. I don't have any advice.But I can totally understand completely how frustrating this is.. plus I constantly feel like there is something wrong - why would he have to wake up crying?? But test after test shows nothing - he has dairy intolerance so I sometimes wonder if its tummy aches? they won't allergy test for him though. I wonder if he just doesn't like to be alone though. He had colic for so long he was always held, he is not good at ALL about playing by himself. its my only :guess!!
