My son will be 1 year on Dec 8 and hasn't slept through the night consistantly at all. He slept through the night for about a month in September, but in October he cut 4 teeth in 2 weeks! Now that he's over that, he still won't sleep through the night without a cup or two of milk. Is this normal? And what can I do to break his habit?

Thank you to everyone for all the help. He is doing much better now, and has slept continuously from 9:15 to 7 for the last few nights. I hope he keeps this up!

I have a nephew who is two and he just started sleep through the night once we stopped him from getting his milk when he wakes at night. I think you need to get a routine going. Feed him his supper so that he is full, bathe him, and once he is out the tub give him his cup of milk before he falls asleep. You have to try to stop him from wanting a cup at night. Try putting water in his cup instead of milk.

My daughter still isn't sleeping thru the night. She will sleep maybe 20 min at a time then wake...she has been like this since about 3 months, I thought teething, but she's only got 2 teeth since September, with no more in sight. It's been a long 10 1/2 months with her! Some babies sleep, some don't. Hopefully as they grow they will grow out of this too!

My daughter will be one on Decemeber 31st, she has only slept through the night once, that was 3 days ago, most nights she only wakes once, but has in the past woken every 1-2 hours. She still has milk during the night, we tried to cut this out, but the screaming was too much to bare so we gave in. She has cut 7 teeth in the last 2 months so hoping now for a bit of a break from teeth for a while and some decent sleep.

My son with b 1 on Dec.31st and he also was sleeping thru the night about a month and the got sick so was getting up like 4 times!!! but what I learn the hard way thru my first son is that you need to cut their naps durning the day. Which used to be three little naps for my 2nd son is no one long nap 4-5 hours after he gets up and MAYBE a 15-30 min nap not very long after then 2nd one (which is usually around 4 if it happened but most the time it doesnt) so he ll then go to sleep anywhere from 8:30-10 depending on him and his eatting. But it is true that if he's sleeping 5 hours at a time its "thru the night" hang in there!

My daughter will be 1 on Dec 1st. She still wakes alot in the night and needs nursing perhaps twice a night. Someone suggested to me that it was a problem, then I saw it like that and tried to change it, long story short, trying to force her to do something she didn't want was more stressful and tiring than just leaving her to her usual routine, and frankly it hadn't been a problem until someone suggested it was. So I just changed my ideas and stopped seeing it as a problem and we are happily back to normal. She'll sleep through when she is ready. By the way, the medical definition of "sleeping through the night" is only sleeping five consecutive hours, so even though she wakes several times in the night, she also has plenty of nights where according to that definition she 'sleeps through". Just goes to show, waking is normal.

My son will be 1 yrs old on Dec. 3rd and about a week ago, he had 5 new teeth come in! Some of them haven't erupted fully so he's been oh so fussy! I usually give my son a warm bath with relaxing music playing *while he's in the tub* and he'll be out for the night...but when he does wake up I do give him a cup of milk as well.
