A Shot in the Dark, Cries In the Night
We co-sleep. Little Bug starts in the crib but makes his way back into bed with me (hubby sleeps in our 'old' bedroom, because it's too crowded for Bug with 3 in a Full bed & it's too noisy for his work schedule). See CRIB for more on that. The last 3 nights he has been waking up around 1am, IN BED WITH ME MIND YOU!! and he just screams. Like the 'I'm mad temper-tantrum type screams' not pain, hunger or any other emotion I can correlate from past experience. I have no idea if this is night terrors? He rolls around and does the mad cry. Nursing is the only thing that gets him back to sleep. He's not hungry though, he does this even just 10 minutes after falling asleep following a nursing session. I'm baffled. No temp. Ears are perfect. No rash. Yes, teething a bit. Maybe a reaction to too much use of his Baltic Amber necklace?? Maybe a reaction to mom using Fenugreek? A bad dream? An assertion of independence? I have NO IDEA! He rolled around so much and flailed and screamed that he managed to poke me in the eye with his little finger, so now my eye is completely bloodshot and both of us are getting no sleep. Ahh! Any suggestions from mom's that have been through this or anyone who says 'aha' when they read this are welcome!
