How Do You Minimize Night Time Wake-ups?

Hi everyone,

My son has been waking up 5-7 times at night for the past few days and I want to know what you do to minimize night time wake-ups?

I try to see if he will soothe himself and go back to sleep but it just isn't cutting it right now.

He is 5 months and has always been a good sleeper at night, even while teething.

Any tips would be appreciated.

    @MayaW I wonder if your son is going through the 4 mo sleep regression? From what I've read it can happen a bit before or a bit after the 4 mo mark (not related completely to teething!!)... and sleep can get very disrupted as they go through this phase of development. I have the wonder weeks app and it has been very helpful for noticing and being aware of developmental leaps with my 2 month old.

    Was he sleeping through the night prior to this change?
