Q.

9-month old waking frequently

dear dr
please advise me on the following: my son got into this routine of waking up every night at 12:30. I have him in a set routine since birth and he goes to bed every night at 19:00. how do you break this routine, i even tried the crying out method last night, but he became histerical as I have never left him to cry without consoling him. I do not believe in this crying out method, but are tired. what do you suggest.
thank you in advance.

Your baby is still too young to try the controlled crying method.He has become used to waking up at 12:30 or it is possible that he feels hungry at that time for a feed.You will not easily break this habit now so continue for a while.
