this is my first post on this forum, although I browse regularly. I'm looking for some opinions on why my 3 and a half month old DS is suddenly struggling with day sleeps, and is very unsettled during the day.
Up until a week ago, he was doing a 9 hour stretch at night without problems, and has even slept through the night oncer twice. He is not the best day sleeper, but usually manages one reasonable morning sleep (1.5 - 2 hrs) and 3 - 4 shorter naps throughout the day. For the last 3 or 4 days, he has woken during the night for a feed after about 6 hours, and his day sleeps have been difficult. It has taken a good 20 minutes to put him down, and he will be lucky to last 30 mins before screaming and waking (and can't be resettled).
This afternoon I put him down (after rocking him to sleep in my arms) and he woke up screaming every 5 minutes for about an hour(he would fall asleep again when I settled him, I'd put him down, and a few mins later he'd cry).
He is very red in the cheeks, drooling a lot and can't keep his hands out of his mouth, but doesn't have a fever.
Could this be teething? Sleep regression? Something else? Help!!
