Um, wow. When I thought it was bad, I shoulda shut my mouth!
I am so confused. Kieran was waking every three hours or so until last Sunday. This week has been horrible. I don't know what happened, but his behavior all around changed. He cries whenever I put him down, he won't play on his own anymore (he used to be perfectly content on the floor for 20 minutes at a stretch) and he wakes every.single.hour throughout the night. Sometimes staying up for as much as two hours in the night. Any ideas what might have happened? Anyone experience this with a previous child? Or even having it happen with this one?
NOTHING changed in our routines, patterns, or ways to put him down. I didn't leave him at a stretch and he didn't get hurt or anything. Motrin doesn't help...and I don't see teeth coming in or anything. He has an amber necklace, just in case that is the issue. I wear him as much as possible during the day. And I always stay in his sight during the day. But I am running out of ideas (and patience, to be perfectly honest...Liam has been tough lately too).
Thanks for letting me whine! I sincerely hope it is a short stage.
Kierans was actually his ears. I just didn't update this thread. He had a double ear infection, which was pretty far advanced in his left side. I felt bad that I blamed it on teething or development and did not have him in sooner. But he is feeling much better and we are working toward getting back on a normal schedule. Last night he slept better than he has in months. So I am hopeful!
