awake every hour at night
my 11 month son has never been a good sleeper and does not sleep through the night. He normally wakes up once around midnight but will go back to sleep very easily. He goes to bed easily with a bottle and his blanket.
Lately for the last few days he wakes up on almost hourly basis crying until i pat him back to sleep again or put him in my bed with me.
he seems to be sore in some way but is 100% happy during the day, has no temperature, is eating & drinking enough. I have been looking for teeth but cant see any more coming through yet. He has 4 already.
I am so tired of this constant waking. What could it be?

His plan is very simple. He wants to be in your bed. If you want to stop it you will need to be very determined and will have to apply the controlled crying technique which is outlined very often on this Forum.
