I am just wondering how many kids out there dont sleep through the night? My daughter is 19months and is up about 3 times a night but i dont actually mind. I dont feel she needs to be sleeping through the night if she isnt ready yet. How many other mums out there feel the same?

My 6 month old son Tyler is up 4 times a night, and I don't mind it that much either, I breastfeed him cause his usually hungry.

I just got my 20 month old to get up once and thats only 80 percent of the time every kid is different I'm tired of people saying she should be sleeping thorugh the night. Let them try and sleep through her high pitched screams.

I have a 4 year old little girl who still doesnt sleep through i also have a 8 year old and 11 year old boys they were really bad sleepers and never slept, they sleep now, but still sometimes the 8 year old will wake up. I just think some children like adults dont need as much sleep and some children are quite restless sleepers and wake up at the slightest noise. I dont think you can train any child to sleep they might grow out of it and as they get older and have more active and busy lives but when they get older they learn to settle themselves.

My first child started sleeping through at 8 weeks..my second not until 6 months and my 3rd at 3 months (but only for a few weeks) and then not again until about 7-8 months.He is now 18months and although sleeps through most nights..still wakes on occasion.Now..with the exception of illness..it's usually just a matter of a cuddle and he's back to sleep..so do not let eratic sleep patterns concern you too much..there are a miriad of reasons for this and usually they are minor definately 'fixable' problems (for lack of a better word.) I don't mind too much either btw lol

I wouldn't let her get used to getting up several times each night if I were you. Change her diaper, check for fevers, whatever she may have waken up for, and put her back to bed. She should learn that at night time, she needs to sleep. If she gets into the habit of getting up during the night, starting school could be an issue, as well as staying the night at a grandparent's or friends house. When I put my two year old down for bed at 8:30, she sleeps until about 7:00 in the morning, unless she's sick. Hope this helps!

My 2 1/2 year old wakes 1-2 a night. She was waking up 3-4 times a night so we are getting there.Now she does put herself back to sleep. I don't mind so much now that it is down to about once a night.

My son just turned 1 yr old and still gets up 1-5 times during the night. His bed time is 8 pm and he usually doesnt get up for the day until between 7:30 and 8 am. Every child is different though. The security guy at my work, his son started sleeping threw the night at a little under a month, and another co-workers daughter didnt start sleeping threw the night until she was 4. She would get up every 2 hours. It is all up to your child.

My 2 year old wakes up at least once and my 4 month old at least twice. The only time I mind it is if they both wake up 3 or more times each. But mostly I don't mind.
