i have 4 children and with the 2nd and the 3rd i never got to sleep through the night. My 3rd is now 2 1/2 and still doest sleep through the night. It might not be anything that you can do. He might just be getting up just cause he is use to it. When he wakes up is he crying and freaking out or just up to be up? That is the question that you have to ask yourself. Mine gets up 2-3 times a night cause she is in need of a drink, once she gets her drink she goes back to sleep.

Not every child sleeps thru the night. Parents want kids to, kids don't always want to. My 21 month old has a few times, but I co-sleep and nurse, so that's what we do. Sleeping thru the night is at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Don't worry it'll happen someday.

my daughter is 13 months and she still doesnt sleep through the night sometimes. I have found that the best thing to do is let them play in the tub until they start to prune, then when you are putting lotion on them, gently massage the legs and the back and the arms. that works for my daughter.

I have a 6mth old, he was great about sleeping through the night at around 4 mths old, in bed by 9:30 and liek clockwork by 7:30. Since teething began a mth ago, he gets up crying every 3-4 hrs. I have learned to make a nice warm bottle, change his diaper and then he goes right back to sleep. Now he only wakes if he is too wet or just wants a snack. May I suggest a quick bottle and clean diaper, but please do so in the dark (that was hard to master) but hopefully that will help. Good Luck.

I suggest reading the book On Becoming Baby Wise. My son was sleeping through the night at 9 weeks old.

oh... and untill them teeth come thru... motrin or whatever you use will help a little but tooth aches are evil and nothing will really make the pain go away compleatly so he will still wake up. i couldnt sleep when i had my horrible tooth ache even on vicoden so it's unrealistic to think otherwise for your lil guy, ya dig? good luck.

i just went thru the same and i thought i has just suddenly turned into a terrible mommy. all of the sudden my son hated sleep. no naps. 2 hours at best over night. guess what i found poking thru his gums a few days later.... i say it's teeth. try a lil motrin before bed and see if that makes a difference. if not.. one dose for no reason wont hurt him at all. good luck and congrats mommy!!

hey i have a 5 month old and since he was born i wrapped him and put him to bed awake and he was sleeping ten hours then going back to sleep for another 2 after a bottle but then he started getting teeth (7 now) and i started rocking him to sleep and since ive been doing that he wakes up all night, so I've decided it has to have something to do with that I've been reading books and it says they have sleep cycles and if you rock them to sleep when they wake up during the night they dont know how to put themselves back to sleep. i'm not sure if you rock him or not but that might be why? also he could be constipated maybe? or have wind? If none of these things anyone suggests is the problem then maybe take him to oyur local clinic or the sleep centre? goodluck

Not to be the bearer of badnews but...my two year old did not start sleeping through the night until she was 23 months old. And my ten month old seems to be following in her footsteps, although the only good thing about this is once she sarted sleeping thru the night we have no problems going to bed and hardly ever wakes up.

thanks for your replys, His routines quite good i thought he has his dinner round 5pm then bath at 6 pm then bottle at 6.30pm then off to bed round 7.30pm. I dont know how you ladies can stay awake till 10 pm lol Im absolutly shattered by then and dont you want some adult time? my son dosent fight going to sleep at all realy he just wpont sleep through,in the end I think he might be having teeth troubles because he was chewing on his fingers and so unhappy today so I gave him some ibprofen for babys and he was much happier after that but then he just woke before,45mins after going down to sleep so I just dont know, thanks again

I have a 14 month old daughter and she's only slept through the night about 5 times!

The community nurse told me that some children still don't sleep through at 2 years.

I hope i have re-assured you in some way that you are not alone

All babies are different. There were some nights where my son (at 3 months) would sleep through the night for about a wek and then would be up every 30 minutes the next. Hes a year old and still goes through changes like that. Even though nothing has changed in his routine. If he was sleeping through the night and now isnt maybe think about what has changed in his routine. Another thing that I have seen change my son sleeping is when he's been learning how to do something new (sit up, crawl, walk) Maybe try to keep him up longer right before bed time or see if you can maybe ween him off a nap during the day. I try to do that when my son is restless at night. He normally goes to bed a about 8. If he took 2 naps I make it at about 8:30 or 9. We'll also have really active play time (like a game of chase, or a tickle fight) right before a bath (which also helps get his energy out) by the time I nurse him and lay him down for bed he's exaused and sleeps very well/ hope that helps. Good luck!

Well idk what your nightly routine is. But my daughter is also 9mths old and she is always in bed by 930pm and doesn't wake up till around 10am. I usually just give her her bath around 8pm then I let her play all that she can till around 9, then I change her butt and feed her her bottle. Usually she falls asleep in my arms. If she doesn't then I put her in her crib cover her up and turn her mobile on. She'll cry for a while but thats cause she's fighting it. I just let her fight it. I know it sounds mean but it works. And then she'll wake up around 8am and cry for a few minutes i just let her cry. She usually goes back to sleep all on her own. Hope this helps GOOD LUCK
