My son is 15 months old. He's been teething like crazy. He has gotten both his bottom molars in (span of 2 days) which puts him at 10 teeth so far. He's currently still got another 4 teeth coming in on the bottom that I can see, and I can't see the top.
Anywho, I know this has been going on for about 2 weeks now, and his sleeping has gone horribly. For the first week or so, I could understand, but now he's been so unsettled and just screams bloody murder all night long. I would give him Ibuprofen and his paci and he'd drift back to sleep, but would wake up after an hour or so screaming again.
So we ended up thinking it was gas or something, and I tried giving him a small amount of gas drops. That would settle him down and he'd sleep for maybe 3 hours and then wake up screaming again. It's getting out of control.
Especially now that it's been going on for a couple weeks. Last night, my husband mentioned maybe he's afraid of the dark, because when we go in to check on him we turn the hall light on and he calms down... Is it possible for a 15 month old to be scared of the dark?? I'm thinking of getting a nightlight today, but I'm nervous that will keep him up even more...
Any ideas ladies??
