My DS is turning 2 soon. He weaned about 3mths ago. His cot is attached to our bed, no railing in between.
When he was younger every night he'd wake up. He cries before he actually wakes. We would pat him and he'd go back to sleep.
Lately he would wake up and cry uncontrollably. We have no idea what's wrong. We can't calm him down. If we pick him up he pushes us away. If we put him down he asks to be picked up. His words are normally muddled anyway but at night he won't tell us what's wrong or what he wants. He really screams.
Sometimes he gets down off the bed, goes out to the living room and cries while we're still in the bed. Then he comes back inside and cries more.
Generally it takes us 30min or so to calm him down. We never work out what's wrong if anything.
