He hasn't screamed much since he was a NB, I mean he has his anger fits when I'm trying to change his diaper because he wants to be on the go but this is not the same.
He's been waking up at 1 - 2 am screaming bloody murder and then I jump out of bed, nurse him, he sortof calms down and I try to calm him down, but yesterday I just got fed up with this, I needed a minute, and laid him down, and after a wimper for about 2 seconds literally - he went right back to sleep. The night before that I held him and held him and he still screamed, but I laid him down last night and he went right back to sleep.
He also hadn't woke up in the night since he was 5 months old now he is waking up again, twice - once in the wee hours and once at around 5 am.
What is going on?
Is it teething? But why would teething make him scream like that at 1 am? And why would laying him down be better than holding him? Should I go to the dr?
