My 11-month-old son has been sleeping in his crib since he was two months old. He is a happy baby during the day. He has a great appetite and I breastfeed about 4 times 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 lasts 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-soothe. 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 is crying so much.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
