My 10 month old was sleeping through the night. Now he wakes up crying very hard at 3am and 4am and nothing will soothe him. I have had him on the same routine since he was 8 weeks old. Help!!

  • He might be hungry. I found mine got hungry in the middle of the night as they got older because they went a longer stretch asleep.

  • Is he teething? That could be it also.

  • Is he already walking?? If he is just starting, then he is probably waking up wanting to walk! Or, he could be going through a growth spurt or he could be teething, or all 3 and possibly something else!

  • amen to everything they already said. Are you feeding your lil one right before bed? If not u could try a small snack or something that will fill him up longer. If it's teething, well it will pass!!(0=

  • Some babies become VERY fussy right before a major milestone is reached. Bedtime routines can become disrupted and they can start waking at night. I don't know if you LO was started crawling or is showing signs of trying to walk but that could be it.
