So, it's 4:30 am. I've been up with my 23 mo son for a little over an hour now. He woke up screaming, which at first I thought was because he really had to pee. So I pottied him, he kept screaming(sometimes he does this until I lay him back down), but he wanted nothing of laying down. I thought he had an upset tummy since he's been pooping yellow stools(I figured it's a food thing since his grandfather has been giving him a lot of candy). The only way he quieted was nursing back to sleep on my lap, which he then slid himself off me between his daddy and I, and stayed sleeping for a bit. He began crying, so I cuddled him close and nursed him and he quieted again. I figured, maybe he had a nightmare. ..But then he stirred and started using his grabby hand motion towards the door like he wanted out of the bedroom and crying.

 

He wanted a bath(been wanting one every day now for the past 3 days), and my MIL woke up, who had heard him crying in our bedroom, and thought due to wanting so many baths, and drinking a lot of water and nursing a lot, that maybe it was a cold, or sinus headache since her husband turned the humidifier off a few days ago. This is possible. He has sneezed a few times.

 

After his bath, he appears to be back to normal, squealing and happy. Only I'm tired.

In our playgroup the 2 - 3 year olds who were having night waking were either potty related, or night terrors.  But it doesn't sound like night terrors as he was able to be comforted. I'd be inclined to think just a nightmare too. How's he doing tonight?

He's been fine, :) That only happened one other time, several months ago. But yes, after we came upstairs I dimmed all the lights, and that calmed him down a bit, and then he wanted a bath(baths are emotionally healing for him) and he was perfectly fine after that, no more fussy moments. It didn't turn out that he had a cold, but my MIL was partially right about it being too dry in the house as my son is no longer drinking so much water and hasn't expressed a desire to have a bath since after the humidifier had been turned on for a day.
