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!!

It definitely sounds like teething to me! My DD is also three months, drooling, red cheeks, can't keep her hands out of her mouth. It has affected her sleep although not too much...I'm just waiting for the day when all hell breaks loose and she won't sleep at all lol! Have you tried infant panadol for your bub? It might help

Thanks for the advice, I'm now certain that it is teething! I have bought home a couple of teething rings and a Sophie the giraffe, as he is desperate tho chew on anything and everything. When I spoke to the MHCN line, the nurse I spoke to told me very firmly not to use Panadol...
