[QUOTE=KeltoKel;2984339]Mama - I don't think anyone disagrees with babies waking in general, but when it is happening 2-3 times a night, then that is when it becomes frustrating! At 9 months, MAYBE they should be waking once a night to eat and that is fine. It is when they start waking more than this that we want to pull our hair out.

My DS is 6 months and still wakes once a night to eat. I am fine with this. It is when he is awake at midnight, 2 a.m., 3 a.m., 4 a.m. etc. that something is off.[/QUOTE]

If you are truely this concerned, check into obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by taking your child to an ENT and ABSM ped sleep specialist. (ABSM - American Board of Sleep Medicine) The symptoms either fit a colicy/hungry child or one with a sleep disorder. If it is sleep apnea.. the stopping of breathing is waking your child.. not hunger and the fear will make it hard for them to return to sleep. OSA in children especially young children is linked to SIDS and other serious conditions. When in doubt check it out.. it is your childs health and never hurts to be too sure.

Yes, you have posted this before. No, he does not have a medical condition. IT was a phase he was going through. Possibly teething. He is back to sleeping much better. My earlier post was a response to the original poster. Please see the posts before mine.
