The crying between 5:15-5:45 leads me to think dust mite allergy as well. But I'm probably biased bc that's my DS's allergy. I suspected it and had it confirmed with skin tests. His reactions were worse at night and indoors. Walmart (or other places) sells allergic barrier sorts of pillow covers and mattress covers, and washing the bedding on the highest heat setting possible on a weekly basis made a huge difference for us. Along with regularly washing blankies and cutting his stuffed animal collection down to ones that will Fit in the washer too.

Hope you find a solution soon! :-)
((hugs))

If it's teething (which it could be too) one of our favorite tricks was to wrap a clean wash cloth around an ice cube and secure it with either a hair tie or rubber band, and let baby gnaw the crap out of the ice cube. It melts all over and makes a big drippy mess but my babies loved it!

Success! After vacuuming and With the humidifier running all night he slept well. When he did wake up he was not crying excessively or rubbing his face.
I'm going with itchy/allergy. My hosts are getting a new filter for their furnace today and that may help even more.
Thank you guys! This will help so much if I catch him doing it a lot in the future I will better understand what's bothering him.
