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?

May I ask how is he falling asleep in the first place? If he is being latched to sleep during bedtime then chances are when he wakes up from one of his sleep cycles he will also need to be latched to help him fall back to sleep.

I think he will grow out of it! mine used to be latched back to sleep but for some reason he now prefers to be patted.
