My 18 month old has NEVER been a good sleeper. I'm still BFing. He's been sick on an off for the last 6 weeks. I've been doing SA, probiotics, etc. He's also getting his molars, I think. Anyway, for the last couple of weeks, his sleep has been terrible. Last night he woke up at 2:30 am and wouldn't go back to sleep. I tried EVERYTHING.<br>
Please give me suggestions. I am at my wits end. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I can't handle much more. I breastfed so much last night and that didn't put him back to sleep... only caused me tons of Braxton Hicks.<br>
Please help a mamma out. Any ideas!?

I don't have any solutions, just wanted to say that we go through the same with teething too & when his digestion is off (he has food intolerances, so he has a sensitive tummy) DS is 19 months.<br><br>
When his 2 year molars are on the move, he just lies there awake (but won't let me sleep of course) for hours.<br>
Last night he was up for 2 hrs, glued to me. He's constipated today, and I see a little more of his upper molar.<br><br><br>
Teething drops before bed, or during the night maybe?<br><br>
Sorry I don't have more, hope you get some rest soon.

Try some things for teething. DD is going through the same exact thing. It's been so bad yesterday I had to give in and give her motrin<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm as natural as they come too. But it helped and finally stopped crying and went to sleep.

I'm afraid time is the only cure for teething and 18-month old sleep regressions. They're a bear. I'm so sorry!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
