For the moms- my little guy is a very restless sleeper. He wakes up almost every 2 hrs during the night- not fully awake but tossing and turning. And he's not able to settle himself back to sleep so DH or I are constantly going over to settle him back down. He is usually moving his arms around his face, so we hold his arms down so he stops hitting himself in the face until he settles down (usually a few seconds) and give him his pacifier back. This will keep him settled for another 2 hrs or so. Then it's the same routine all over again. He's been doing this for months. Some nights are better then others. He shares a room with DD so I guess I run over to settle him quicker than I would if he was in his own room.
Has anyone dealt with a restless sleeper? DD was never like this. At this age I could put her down and not hear from her for 12 hours. Any advice??
