interrupted sleeping
An_222313 posted:
my 7 month grandson has developed a habit of waking every couple of hours during the night. He isn't hungry, wet, cold, or hot. Any suggestions as to why all of a sudden he started doing this?

Ahhhh..sleep issues! (I'm still having them with my 2 year old!)

A few questions: What time is he put down to sleep at night? What is his nap pattern during the day? Are there any outside noises that could be causing this? (Traffic, a loud bird by the window, heater coming on, pets in the house)

Also, how is the waking handled? Is he allowed to Cry It Out or is he picked up, etc?

Let me know a few more details and more members can chime in with suggestions!
