My nearly 9mth old has started waking overnight and can be awake for well over an hour at a time. I get him off to sleep but as soon as I put him down he starts crying again.
Before this he seems to either have nightmares or pain, because we can hear him quietly sobbing in his sleep before he wakes up properly too.
This is not normal for my boy - he is a very happy and settled baby usually and isn't waking hungry (slept through since 7mths with no waking). I've checked the Wonder Years App and he isn't in a growth spurt.
He has no teeth yet and doesn't 'look' like he's teething, no typical symptoms at least. He has started thrashing his head about recently though, like his ears are troubling him?
Can anyone please help?
