My 5.5 month old has always been a good sleeper. He's been sleeping through the night since he was 2 months old. However, during the past two weeks, he's had trouble. Its very difficult to get him to sleep at night and when we do, he wakes up about every hour. He is also not eating well and sleeping about 1/2 as much during the day. Is there anything I can do to help him sleep?
Of note: His first teeth came in at 4 months with no problems. It does not look as if his top teeth are coming in yet. It is also allergies season here, and he has been coughing and sneezing with a runny nose and eyes and red cheeks thatView Thread
