Q.

Night wakings

My baby is 4 months this week and all of a sudden started waking up at 11, 2 and 4. He is now fully on formula and drinks 175ml at a stage. He drinks between 5 - 6 bottles a day. He use to go to bed at 7 then only woke up at 01:30 but not anymore. He has his hands in his mouth the whole time and he drouls alot. Could this be due to the fact that he is teething. He slept in our room for 2 nights when my other son visits, could this have taken him out of his sleepzone and maybe he knew it? I am so tired and frustrated.

Your baby is definitely starting to teeth now.You can apply a little Pansoral gel to his lower gums and see if this makes him feel more comfortable.
