    So you guys are pretty good with your fish advice and kids are pretty much the same thing right? lol

    Anyway, my son is 11 months old on Wednesday. Up until now he has slept all through the night every night. Barring a few nights where he wasn't feeling well. The last five days have been awful. He'll conk out at 8 and sleep till 10 and then scream bloody murder. At first we thought something was wrong, but we'd get him out of bed, calm him down and he's happy as a clam. Then we have to let him play for a few hours just to get him to fall asleep again. Last night I made sure to run him ragged. Chased him all over the house playing till he was good and worn out. Still woke up at 10 and I couldn't get him down again till 1am. I make sure he's got a clean diaper, might give him an extra small bottle to tide him over. But really I think he's just full of energy or something. Is this just a phase or is there some little technique that I'm not thinking of? Could there be some problem I've overlooked? I know, I know, new parent just wants to sleep but yeah.... I just want to sleep.

    Have you checked to see if he's teething? I know my sister's 2 year old had slept pretty inconsistently since he was a year because his molars bother him. Some kids just get off what you thought was a well established sleeping schedule. Unfortunately, with kids each one is different.. lol. Good luck!

    Maybe, though I haven't noticed. He's got eight nice little teeth in the front and those didn't seem to bother him that much. But those back teeth could very well be different. I'll check his mouth when I get home.

    And the real problem with teeth is they can come up and go back down a few times before they finally break through. Just keep an eye on it.

    That's one way to do it.. lol. I always wonder how any of us made it to adulthood with all the things we went through that are big no-no's now. Although, I doubt a little whiskey is too bad, right?

    sounds like he might be just try to find his sleeping pattern along with a growing spurt that's full of energy..They have much more energy than we do. One thing you can do is just try to put him to bed a little later in the evening...Thats only postponing it, but you might sleep a little longer.

    We also used a thing that project a light on the ceiling and played soft music. As long as the music was going, she was asleep. She still wakes up in the middle of the night but now its for potty or milk....
    It never ends, but eventually you get more sleep.

    I heard whiskey... Give the kid a nip and let him suck on your finger dipped in whiskey... feel for the teeth trying to make their way up.
