  • Yep. Teething. Pretty much anytime in his age range can be blamed on teething. Lots of fun, huh? : )

  • What can i do to help put him back to sleep. the only thing that works is giving him a bottle, but i dont want him to become dependant on it plus he doesnt need to drink that much through out the night.

  • he doesn't like the binky's anymore. only to chew on them when he is awake. well he had started waking up for a bottle twice sometimes 3 but rarely through the night but now he is waking up every hr.

  • OH EVERY hour!! lol i thought you meant once!hmm well a bottle every hour is alot! sorry..well give the bottle once maybe twice with his milk(i assume) and the other times give him water in bottle maybe? for me i always just rocked my little one and then went to sleep with her(co-sleep) good luck!

  • Have him checked for an ear infection. Frequent night wakings was the first (and still is) symptom for my kids.

  • He might be going through a growth spurt; try nursing him back to sleep.
