  • he might be scared of the dark...I know I am. Maybe there are some shadows that are bothering him.

  • It is possible he is afraid of the dark, try getting him a night light, even let him pick it out, or get one that has a character he likes.

  • I just had this same type of conversation with one of my daughters. Babys go through lots of changes. This is one of them.
    This too shall pass. Be patient
