Q.

baby not sleeping at night

Dear Doc
My son is 7.5 months and wakes up every 2 hrs at night!he tosses and turns a lot. What could be causing this?
He sleeps fine during the day, for about 4 hours at a time, its only at night that he does this. I have tried Camomile tea or rooibos at night but they are not helping. I work 12 hours a day and am so exhausted and not sure whether i am doing anything wrong or not,please please advice

Paediatrician

There are several possibilities including teething, a blocked nose, hunger or possibly acid reflux. If the cause is not obvious it would be best to ask your paediatrician to see your baby.
