I have a 2 years old toddler who cries constantly in the early morning (typically 2am-4am) for a long period of time (over 1 hour) if not longer. This consistently happens 3-4xs a week!
When my husband and I try to calm him down it seems to only get worse. The crying becomes louder and angrier & he would even scratch us. He eventually cries himself back to sleep. This has been happening ever since he turned 1. We noticed it wasn't as bad then.
We have not brought this up to his pediatrician's attention yet. We were hoping that it will eventually go away. He was also born with hernia so my husband and I always thought that it could just be him experiencing pain from that. Also, he's a very picky eater.
Do any parents have this problem with their child?
