Hi all my baby is 7 months 3 weeks old. He has been waking up several times (at least 3-4 times) and sometimes might sit up or be on all fours in the middle of the night. He can't be soothed back to sleep, will cry quite badly and loudly (as if in pain). The only way to soothe him back to sleep is to latch him. Anyone facing the same problem? Is it normal?

It's quite common for babies at that age to be having such sleep disruptions. It could be due to growth spurt or teething. You can see if your baby is displaying any of these other signs that are commonly associated with teething: - irritability or fussiness - drooling (could lead to facial rash) - gum swelling and sensitivity - gnawing or chewing behaviour - refusing food Take care! Hope you can get some rest too!
