are molars responsible for my 17-month old not sleeping?
An_240404 posted:
I have a 17 months old boy who used to be a fantastic sleeper. However the past week he cries so hard whenever he's about to go to bed, that he throws up. Friends are telling me that this because he is getting his molars...? I am sure things will calm down soon, but I just feel so terrible for him!

It could be his molars, but it could also be separation anxiety. My 2 year old has been going through this for awhile now. He is very clingy as of lately and sometimes when we leave his room at bedtime he keeps crying out for me. I think it's just a phase. It will get better.
