  • You might want to talk with your ped about the spitting up. It may be time to introduce foods or change formula. Also my ped told me to let my son play and nap/ but no longer than 60-90 min after around 2pm so they will be ready for bed. I also have a bedtime routine that is started at 7pm and my son is usually in bed by 8pm. Good luck adn hang in there; hopefully it is just a phase.

  • this happened to my son at about 4 1/2 months. I was told that he is teething and that can cause it.

  • I dont know if its common, but I m going through the same thing. My baby girl is 5 months old... I am pretty sure she has an ear infection (we have an appt in the morning). She was sleeping 12-13 hrs per night, and now she wakes up like 25 times... Fewf... we both need sleep lol.
