: I have an eighteen month old son, and have yet to have a night where he has slept through. I don't have a problem in getting him off to sleep, but he wakes every night anything from three to six times per night. What concerns me most is the way in which he wakes. He always wakes with a scream and is always upset. There is no warning of him beginning to stir, just full on screaming. I have had him checked out medically, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong physically. He is quite a grumpy child with a bad temper, but is also very bright with excellent speech. Does anyone have similar problems or ideas of how we can all get a full nights sleep

Please read my post further up the board. Our sons sound very similar. Grumpy, easily angered, but bright and talking since 11 months. We finally bit the bullet and did CIO. He has been sleeping at least 12 hours through the last few nights, and his tempermant has done an about face as a result. Any questions for someone "been there done that" very recently, I would be happy to help. Vanessa
