my 16 month old son goes to sleep well; we put him to bed around 8 pm and he goes down with out a fuss. However lately suddenly wake up around 1 am screeching and slamming himself into the crib trying to make as much noise as possible. I have tried everything to get him back to sleep, rubbing his back, singing too him, doing the 5 min, 10 min, 15 min CIO thing; nothing helps.
When he wakes up he tells me he is hungry - if I try to feed him he doesn't want to eat. He tells me he needs a bum change, he doesn't. If it is me that goes in he wants his dad, if dad goes in he wants me. He will do anything to try and stay up. He will even hit his head off the crib so that he can say that he is hurt - he does it very lightly and never hurts himself, he also does this during day time tantrums too so if anyone has a way to get that to stop I would love to hear it.
How do I get him to go back to sleeping through the night?
