  • Most probably teething hon. Try leaving some bonjela or the like next to his cot and rubbing some on his gums when he wakes up. My lo doesn't even like his dummy because his gums are so sore sometimes.

    Also if it's 3.30 every night he could be waking through habit now (perhaps caused by teething in the first place possibly?) I'm not sure what to do for this, but I read in the Baby Whisperer that you should wake him an hour before the habitual waking time, to get them out of the habit. I know it seems backward, but this is supposed to work apparently!

    Good luck hon - sounds like you're doing a great job.xx
  • It's probably teething pain, I'm going through a similar thing with my almost 7 month old. If she wakes in pain I usually give her a teething powder or rub on some bonjela, have you tried that?
