Q.

Sleeping pattern Infant

I have a 6 month old infant that stirs every night in his sleep. He does not open his eyes, and just riggles, very uncomfortably. Is there anything that we can give him to have a peaceful sleep or something to soothe this uneasiness. He is also a very light sleeper and the slightest noise will wake him.

Sedatives of any kind are no longer recommended for infants.It is very likely that your baby is teething.
