I am wondering if anyone can help me. I have heard from so many people that it is normal but it just doesnt feel right to me. My son is 10 months old and he doesnt sleep through the night. The longest period of time he has slept is 3 1/2 hrs. He is extremely fussy, not all the time, but so much of it. He does a cry that is almost fake until I pick him up and then he still fusses. He does this when he has a full belly, clean diaper and everything else. I am just getting more and more concerned. I am exhausted and just want to help my son. I just dont understand what is going on with him. I hear from people all the time Im sure it is his teeth, but he has been getting teeth since he was 4 1/2 months old and he has never since he was born slept through the night or longer then 3 1/2 hrs. Please help me.
My daughter doesn't sleep through the night either she is almost 11mos. But about the fussy part it could be teeth or maybe alittle bit of gas/heartburn. I know that the two problems we have had with my LO. For the gas we have used gripe water before bed and put a pillow under her mattress to make her a bit elevated in her crib. I guess worth a shot, sleep deprevation sucks!
This sounds just like my kiddo when she had ear infections. She is also a non-sleeper at at 13 months is still waking up at least once in the night. She does have tubes now. ((HUGS)) to you exhuasted mama! You may just have a high-needs way to busy for sleep kiddo like I do.
My daughter is 10 months old and she does not sleep through the night either. I wouldn't worry about it, I know it can be frustrating, but he'll sleep through soon enough. My daughter doesn't eat a whole lot, so she wakes up to eat and then goes back to sleep. How much does he eat? she drinks about a 4 oz bottle with cereal before bed and she won't take anymore. I can only count about 5 times that she has slept through the night since she's been born.
