Q.

Screaming baby at night

Hi girls, my boy is 9 months and saturday he woke up at 12 screaming. He did not want his bottle dummy to be held nothing could calm him down. This went on till about 5.30am. I eventually put him in his room and closed the door. He fell asleep within 20 minutes. He even had black rings around his eyes. SO last night at 12 again he woke up screaming same story no bottle dummy nothing could calm him down. I put him back in bed but at 1.30am he was still screaming. I took him and let him sit in the lounge gave him some pandado and put him back in bed. Lucky this time he fell asleep in 10 minutes. What is it? WHat am i doing?

Paediatrician

Something seems to causing pain in your baby. It could be something simple and common such as teething or else it could be an ear infrction. If you think it is teething apply a little Pansoral gel to his gums at night and give him a dose of Panado Infant drops at night as well. If he seems to have a temperature he should be seen by your paediatrician.
