My son turned 7 months old yesterday. He is breastfed, and started solids about a month and a half ago. At first, his stomach got upset, so we cut back and only tried bananas, then avocado, anything mild that we made ourselves. He just started jarred baby food this week. He also switched to "4" diapers. His first tooth is in the whole way, and has been for a month, his second tooth is half way up. He started crawling at five months, and is now all over the place. Also, we practice co-sleeping and him in his crib...a little bit of both, depending on the situation. He's mostly in his crib, though. I just wanted to give you his background.
For the past four nights, he gets us up every 45 minutes, even nap time. He starts to fuss, then will scream and cry-without waking up--until we come to him. Normally, if we don't go to him in the first five minutes (Trying to let him "cry-it-out", even though we're against it), he will scream himself awake and become just hysterical. Normally, I will offer him my breast and it will sooth him, but he doesn't eat. Or he might eat for 30 second, but then he'll just roll over and go right back to sleep. I've read about night terrors, teething, stomach pain, etc. and I just don't know. He does grab at his ears while he's nursing, but I thought it was because he was soothing himself--he has no other symptoms of an ear infection. Any advice would be great! Thank you!View Thread
