My 11 month olds son had been sleeping in his crib since he was two months. He is a happy baby during the day. He has a great appetite and I breastfeed about 4x a day and when he wakes in the night. Recently he has been waking in the night. I breastfeed and burp him then put him back down like normal. Now he starts to scream and cry. I go in every half hour pick him up calm him and put him back, but he continues to cry. It last s for hours. At this point I just don't know what to do. I have a three year old trying to sleep in the next room. We are all sleep deprived. I put him down to bed/naps awake and he knows how to self sooth. I don't understand why he cannot fall back to sleep in the middle of the night. He is not hungry as I feed him plenty of breastmilk at night, I burp him, make sure his diaper is not soiled. I am out of ideas as to why he crying so much. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
There are a lot of possibilities, but a few to check. Definitely talk to your pediatrician as soon as you can, both because it's possible there could be an underlying medical issue, and your doctor will know your child better than random strangers on the internet and have good advice.
