I have a 15 month old boy, who used to sleep all night since he was three months old, he is very active during the day and takes 30 min naps, it's been about 1 month now that he won't go to sleep at the regular time of 7:30 to 8 pm, he's been going to sleep at about 12: am every night fighting it all the way til he's out, then wakes about 2 times in the night like when he was a newborn, I'm so tired, exhausted to be honest.

I have been giving him his milk right before bed, giving him long soothing baths and still he wakes, the question is: Have any of you moms gone through this, or are you going through this now, and what are you doing or did about it? I need help, badly!!!

He may be teething. Has he gotten his molars in yet? If not he may be uncomfortable. If the pattern continues you might talk to the doctor about melatonin. It is a natural supplement to our own sleep pattens. My doctor recommended it to me for my preemie when he was about one to help regulate his sleep. I would definitely rule out all other options and talk with the doctor first though. Good luck!

Get a radio. I had this same issue with both my girls and the radio fixed it straight away. (Thank you Delilah!) Now they get their bath, their milk (yes even the 4 yr old gets a glass of milk before bed), a story, and Delilah. I haven't lost a wink of sleep since. Good Luck!

I have experienced this when my daughter was at the same age. Since birth my daughter will sleep thru the night and suddenly her sleeping habit changed. I know how stressful that can be. What I did was I turned on the TV and DVD and have her watch Barney, Dora or whatever she liked until she gets tired and fall asleep. I prepare her milk and tell her if she wants to drink milk she can get it where she can reach. Hope this helps

Run him tired before bed... Keep to a routine... Maybe cut out so much milk before bed, that maybe what's keeping him up (wet diapers)..Also try adding a book or two in right before sleepy time.. Good luck!!!
