My 1yr old son has always slept through the night since he was 6 months old. However for the past 1 week, he has been waking up 2-3 times in the middle of the night and needed me to rock him back to sleep. I am so afraid that it will become a habit? Anyone know what caused this and how to make him sleep through the night again?

dear Samantha, i think this is just a phase. babies go through different sleep patterns, and if your little one has till now slept through the night, then in all likelihood he will do this again soon. it is possible that since your baby is growing up, he may be hungrier, and needs more feeds at night. also, your baby will now start getting more and more playful, so maybe it is time to indulge in a little play at night :)

There are many reasons why children wake up in the middle of the night. He could be hungry, teething or just wants to be close to mummy. It sounds more like a phase that children go through and will outgrow. You don't have to be too worried! :)
