Our new baby is now 3 months old and a real joy to us. He used to wake up a few times at night to nurse (quite naturally). However, now he is very fussy and wakes up every 2 hours. We are trying to determine the cause. He has some bad baby acne and my wife thinks this is causing him to wake up. I thought it was because it was too hot in the room. Last night I cranked down the AC but he still woke up alot.
(On a side note, I also think the house being too hot and the baby being overdressed with long sleeves is causing the baby acne. We have been keeping it at 77 degrees but now I am turning down the air when I leave for work. My mom said the baby's fat will keep him warm and that we don't have to bundle him up so much).
I've noticed that our baby tries to turn over in his bassinet and gets frustrated when he bumps up against the side. I think maybe graduating him to a crib will help him sleep since he will have more room. Still, he still wakes up at night in his bassinet while sleeping on his back, even after having breast fed.
Could our baby be starting to teeth early?
I know that sleep training is supposed to begin at 3 months. We failed to sleep train our daughter and she did not begin to sleep by herself through the night until she turned 4 this year. Any advice or help on starting and maintaining good, independent sleeping for our baby would be appreciated!
