    Default Teething? Daylight Savings?

    Before your bub's first teeth came through, how long was s/he showing symptoms?

    DS is 5 months old and has been sleeping poorly for about 3-4 weeks now. Before he got sick with a chest infection at 3.5 months old, he had just started waking only once during the night (ie between about 9pm and 7am).

    Now he wakes between feeds, and then repeatedly between 5am and his 7am feed. Knowing he is capable of sleeping 9 hours straight (a once-off ), this is very frustrating and is starting to get exhausting.

    He is breastfed and hasn't started on solids yet. He's been drooling like a tap for about 3-4 weeks, but doesn't seem to have many other symptoms.

    Do you think the poor sleeping is a symptom of teething or is he looking forward to daylight savings starting? If its teething, how long will it last?

    DS always a but clingy for days leading up to teeth cutting through. Refuse to eat as much and prefers colder drinks. His first tooth cut through at 5 months old and hes been drooling aunce 3 months, red cheeks and no other symptoms. The night before his tooth cut through he was crying all night. Was only 1 night though.Do you think your LO is hungry thats why he wakes up so much at night? DS was breastfeed too. He woke up 3-4 times a night till 11months old.

    He was better last night. I fed him at 9.30 before I went to bed, and then he didn't wake up until 4.30 for a feed. I put him down at 5 after a good feed and a nappy change. He started crying at 5.30, so I'm not sure if he'd been back to sleep or not, but he definitely wasn't hungry.
