My son will be 6 months old in a few days and I love him more than life. He is a joy during the day and naps pretty decent (2-3 naps lasting about 45 mins to 1 1/2 hrs.) Night time is another story though and I think I might go crazy very soon if he doesn't start sleeping. He goes down anywhere between 8:30 - 10:00 and usually goes down without much fuss. He will just lay in my husbands arms and fall asleep with a little rocking. He eats usually within a hour before going to be and we will sometimes have a bottle ready to help coax him to sleep when he decides to fight his sleep. The problem is that for the last 3 nights, he has woken up every 25 -45 mins. This goes on ALL night long until around 5-6. Then he conks out until atleast 7 if not 8am. I am not sure how he even gets thru the day with such little sleep and i am sure that I will pass out one of these days from the lack of sleep. he will usually eat 2-4 ounces thru the night, around 2-3 AM.
So I am wondering if he is going through a phase or if this is a common issue? Is there any hope for a good nights sleep for all of us in the near future? I should also mention that he has been "examined" by his doctor and had blood drawn. Nothing is going on medically that the doctor can determine. He is on an acid reflux medicine but he has been on this since birth and this is a very new problem. Before he would sleep until 3 and then up for the day around 6:30.
