My little guy will be 5 months on March 2nd. He was doing soooo well with sleeping through the night for awhile there, and now suddenly the past week or two he's been waking up 2-3 times a night again. Seems like he is back to his old schedule of waking every 4 hours for a diaper change, feeding, the whole shabang everytime. We think it has to do with teething but we're giving tylenol and baby orajel. What else can we do?

Anyone else having setbacks with sleep all of a sudden? Is this normal I wonder?

I think it's pretty normal. Owen was never sleeping through the night completely but he was doing one long stint (like 6 or even 7 hours) but now he's back to waking up a lot - he goes to bed at 7 and tends to wake up 3 times or sometimes even 4 before he's up for the day at 7:30. He's not teething yet I think it's a growth spurt or something maybe? I'm hoping he'll outgrow it at some point soon, but I'm not ready to do CIO or anything so I might just be stuck with this pattern for a while....

CIO stands for Crying it out.

From what it sounds like, it's typical of this age. Audrina was also sleeping really well at night but then when she got her 4 month shots a week ago, that all changed. Just like your little one, she's acting like a new born all over again. Up evert 2-3 hours to eat and having a hard time getting back to sleep as well!

I also have been seeing signs of teething with my little one too! So maybe that is also contributing to the sleepless nights.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
