Hope someone can give me some advice.....
my little boy is almost 10 weeks old and has always self settled at bedtime, but for the last few nights he has started crying soon after being put down to sleep and isnt hungry, i soothe him by stroking and shushing but minutes after i leave the room he starts crying again, and wakes up every few hours during the night, again he isnt really hungry, he might take and ounce or two of milk but thats it. he usually drains 6oz bottles. ive tried calpol but he cries even more and spits it out.
could it be because he has a bit of a cold? (just a bit of a cough and blocked nose but we use nasal spray to help that)
or could it be teething? his cheeks are rosy and he puts his fist in his mouth a lot, also i felt his gums and they are very hard and a bit sharp?
any suggestions gratefully recieved! xx
