My 14+ month old boy is waking constantly in the night and crying out.
To begin with I thought it was rather sweet that he would wake and 'call for me' so I would comfort him by saying "it's ok, oh dear" etc, stroking him on the head and picking up his dummy and putting it back in his mouth. However, this has been going on now for over a month and as fast as I eventually get to sleep I am woken again. He is in our bedroom right next to my bed so I just get up and lean over the side of his crib. When I put his dummy back in, he tends to lay back down and go off to sleep. I'm trying to get him to put his own dummy back in but he's not having any of it and if I don't get up for him his crying gets louder. Any suggestions please. Think I've made a rod for my own back as he used to sleep through by the time he was one and now we've gone backwards. I've tried getting "Oli the owl' back out - with cry sensor and white noise, but it makes no difference. Also, have a small warm glow from the grow egg but doesn't help. Would just like one night where I can sleep through. Any suggestions much appreciated.
