Q.

7 month old tossing and tuning all night

Hi DOc
My boy is 7 months old, and is not sleeping at night, he tosses and turns all night, and moans at the same time. This only happens at night, after 04:00am he is fast asleep without any issues. He is not sick or anything, temparature is normal.What could cause this?
Thank you kindly

It is difficult to be certain as to the cause of your baby's restlessness. He is probaly not teething now. The most likely cause is that he may be a bit hungry. Look to increasing his solids especially in the evenings and he will have his usual formula before he is put to bed at night.It also helps to be sure that he has a good routine with regular sleeps during the day.
