I have an almost 6 month old who wakes 5-6 times a night... sometimes more! We are so drained. We have tried just about everything. My husband wants to let him CIO, but I don't. We let him for 15 minutes today and it didn't do anything but make him mad and hate his crib the next nap time. I won't have him sleep with us. He eats baby food and breastmilk before bed. He doesn't take a pacifier. He has a crib toy that helps a little. He has a routine at night and it's been the same his whole life. We have tried medication, thinking it was pain from teething. He have tried swaddled and unswaddled. He has music in his room, we have also tried white noise and no sound.
He doesn't seem to sleep too much during the day... maybe 4 hours total. But is only getting about 6 hours at night with all the waking up... maybe less.
I know babies wake... but this is a bit much!
