Q.

/baby not sleeping

My 9 month old son is not sleeping through, he tosses, turns and sometimes just screams while sleeping. What could be causing this, or what must i look out for. And sometimes he will be scratching his nose while crying. Please advise

Paediatrician

It sounds as if your baby has an itchy blocked nose. Tthis often leads to sleep disturbance as you describe here. Use Salex nose drops twice daily in his nose and see if this helps. If his nose continues to be blocked please ask your paediatrician to see your baby.
