Q.

sleep pattorn suddenly changed

my 7.5 month old had been a farely good sleeper only waking up once during the night. for the past 2 nights he wakes up every hour...not always crying...i know he is teething as he has 8 teeth already...so i gave him some nurofen (pead) syrup last night, for in case he is in pain, but that did not work.
i have him in n strict roetine and he goes to bed by 18:30. he also wakes us up every morning between 4:00 and 4:30. any suggestions. my hubby and I are like zombies...

As this sleep propbelm has just happened now it is probably his teething that is worrying him. He does not always cry when he wakes up so he does not appear to be hungry or have a lot of pain. Try giving him Panado or Calpol syrup in the recommended dose for his age.
