My son has started waking 2-3 times a night. He used to get through to about 4.30am and I'd breastfeed him and he'd go back to sleep. Suddenly he's waking about 3 times a night crying. I try not to BF every time and sometimes my husband goes in, but the last couple of nights he just won't go back to sleep without it. Or he'll only sleep in bed with me. He arches his back and screams if we try to put him back down still awake. He used to be ok with this.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a growth spurt at this age? Should I be feeding him? Is it seperation anxiety and he wants to be close to me? He's fine when I drop him at day care.
