my little one hasn't been sleeping well for about a month and half now- we think it is teething, but my question is- how do i get him to sleep all night. he goes to bed at 8 and will sleep until 2:30, then he wants to eat. i have been bringing him to my bed at this point because i am just soooo tired ( i have a nearly 4 year old too) then in my bed he wakes up about once an hour and wants to eat. at first we thought growth spurt, but now i think it is just habit and teething. he will not go back to sleep in his crib after he wakes to eat. i am not a big fan of the cry it out method this early. i have got up to feed him and tried to lay him back down, but he then cries like crazy. i need some advice or i am going to be the crazy one. i get about 4 hours of sleep a night and can't take a nap during the day because of my 4 yr old and my baby only naps for 30 minutes 3x a day. at the end of the day i am ready to cry- help!!!!Answer Question

Actually you have a baby that technically sleeps through the night. Sleeping through the night is considered a 5 hour stretch. You are much more lucky then many. The only real solution is for you to go down when baby goes down, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. BTW even CIO advocates say no CIO during teething because a teething child absolutely needs your attention.
