    Default sit up crying every night

    Hi

    My son is 14 month old and he has been waking up at least 3 times at night.
    As my maternl nurse suggsted,I go check on him when he starts crying but without any words.
    I just put back his dummy and lay him down. Most of the times, he goes back to sleep.

    Last couple of days, I tired not to go into his room for 20 min or more to let him crying but it didn't work. He sometimes stopped crying but starts again in short time.

    It has been like this almost 3 months and never gets better.
    He often throws his dummy from his cot when he starts crying.

    We have good rutine before he goes to bed and no issue with that. It's just a problem druing night usually starts around 11pm.

    Is there anyone who has same problem and sorted out?

    Thanks for reading.

    my first reaction, is go into him in a shorter time frame. maybe just 5 mins. let him self settle if he can, but to wait 20 mins is too long, I think. I agree with the no words, just gently put the dummy back, check if he is comfortable, not too hot or cold, not needing a nappy change. ?? I think he needs to be assured that you are near, and you will come to him, but allowing him a little time to self settle is ok. perhaps a drink of water might be something to offer?? marie

    It could be separation anxiety or nightmares. My ds has been doing this at 18 months, waking up and sitting up in bed crying. Sometimes I hear him cry out in his sleep too.

    i agree with @SuperGranny don't wait so long to go in. Personally I would go in within a minute...we cosleep so I lie him back down and give him some bm to settle him back to sleep.

    My 14mth old goes down well and wakes up between 9.30 and 12 and needs a feed to get back to sleep. I take her into bed with me as I hate hearing her cry. Lately it's been worse she finds it harder to settle even in our bed. I don't know if it's the age and fear / sep anxiety or teething or in my case bad habit? Sorry no advice but you're not alone!!

    Thanks for your advice.
    If it is because of the separation anxiety or nightmares, I also think let him crying for 20min was too long.
    I will check on him sooner from tonight.

    My ds did this again last night...but while I was in the bed. He seemed disorientated. I bet it was a nightmare.
