I need your help on this one. I have a 22 month old who STILL wakes up multiple times every night. It is my second child. All of my friends tell me that their young kids sleep through the night.
Here is more information:
1)My child is teething (a late bloomer) and this may be part of the problem BUT this has been going on for months and it occurs many times a night, whether I give meds for the pain/discomfort or not.
2)I have tried giving more solids during the day
3)I have tried putting my child to sleep later...in order to sleep through the night from being so tired.
4)I have tried giving more milk just in case the usual amount isn't enough
5)My child has GERD reflux but isn't taking medication anylonger because there is no need to. This however is not the problem because my little one notifies me if any symptoms of reflux are being experienced.
6)There is also a night light in the room so as to make my child feel safe
Taking all of this into consideration, what could be the problem? I read that half a banana before bed may help but my child just doesn't want to eat any type of fruit at night.
ANY advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
