My son is seven and a half months old. For the last two nights he has cried all night and awoke with Hus head locked to the right. After a diaper change and sitting upright he was able to move again. By the time I fed him breakfast he was fine. We took him to emerg yesterday and they said they couldn't see anything. "He's probably just teething".. they said. I need to sleep and I'm worried. Anyone out there experience this??? Please help !

Have you tried taking him to his actually doctor rather then the Emergency room? I would all his personal doctor and ask to make an appointment. Also, with techonolgy now adays, if this happens again, which I hope not- Just record it..if you have the video recorder on your phone take it and show it to your doc-

A seizure maybe?

Does he have a fever? Is the soft spot on top of his head puffy-looking?

I'm not saying anymore until I see your reply because I don't want to worry you for no reason.

Thanks for your concern ladies. My son is doing better. Please let me explain more on what happened... I went to emerg because on weekends walk-in clinics are closed and our family Dr was not available until the 13th. I didn't let him scream at night. I tried baby Tylenol, picking him up, cuddling, etc. I tried everything i could think of. Its not like I didn't try to help him. I would never let my child scream without trying to help! I posted this to look for answers, see if anyone else has experienced this. After I was finally able to get a hold of my mother, who had been out of country, she suggested that he was cold/getting a draft at night. We do make sure he is warm but in older houses there can be drafts that leek in. We changed his furniture around, added a humidifier and warm bean bag, and for the last two nights he slept as usual. We also managed to squeeze in a visit with our Dr who couldn't say what was wrong, only that he was not sick in any way. So, long story short, if any of you encounter this, check your babies room for drafts and coldness.
