Desperate !! My 22 month old son wakes up after 6 hours of sleep at night and then at times he's awake for straight 2-3 hours. I rock him to sleep, offer milk but make sure he's not leaving the room..lights are off all this time. He eats alright and has milk before he falls asleep. There's also a good bedtime routine established. There are these surprising nights where he does sleep through the night. He goes to childcare thrice a week but has good physical activity in the park etc when he's with me at home. Any suggestions to help him sleep through the night?

That must be hard on both of you. I think he should not be offered any milk at night at this age. Does it seem as if anything is bothering him if not maybe it is becoming a habit for him. Minimal interaction and not food or drink might be a good idea.

He's quite a sound sleeper otherwise. He doesn't cry. ..just wants to play or be awake.

Is he waking up crying? Maybe have sleep music or white noise all night in his room. He could be a light sleeper and something is waking him up.
