DS (4 months old) usually wakes up every 3-4 hours at night to nurse. Starting last week, he was waking up every 2 hours. And last night, he woke up EVERY hour, on the hour.
Could this be teething? He didn't seem to be in pain, so I don't think it's gas. He did nurse, but he was so fussy while nursing. Please tell me it will get better. I am tired.

It could be the 4-months sleep regression. With DD, it lasted a (long!) 2 months...got better when we really changed her pattern for a night.

Dd, 6 months, has been eating almost non-stop the past two nights, so I feel you. I figure it is probably a growth spurt thing or some such.

The 4 month sleep regression is the WORST IMO. It will get better in a few weeks. Then be ready for it again at 6 months and 9 months.....

this usually happens to my babes when they're working on a new skill. My DD (4 months) was like this a few weeks ago when she was learning to roll over. the day she figured out how to roll, she went back to sleeping normally.

I thought it may be this. In the middle of these sleeping changes, he DID start rolling back to front, and front to back. But after he mastered that skill, the sleeping hasn't changed. :sigh:
