My LO is nearly 8 months and is on solids but recently he has started to sleep less and less. Just before xmas he started to sleep really well at night and would even sleep till 9am!! Which I knew wouldn't last long. He has had on and off colds since then and teething(still no teeth) but he now barely goes an hour or two and quite often ends up in bed with me. And even then he still cries in his sleep. He usually goes to bed by 8.30pm (depending on his mood) and will wake about an hour later wide awake ready to play. My partner keeps things quiet and low lighting till he eventually goes back to sleep - maybe after an hour. He then wakes 5-10 times a night and sobs in his sleep. He naps anywhere between an hour to 3 hours during the day. But tends to only want to sleep on me which isn't realistic. Last night he was awake for about two hours from 2.30am but was ready to play. Anyone have any tips on anything that could help?
