I'm well on my way to that too. My son is 16 months old and most nights still wakes up and calls for me. Whenever I think we are heading in the right direction and he starts sleeping through the night more frequently, something happens to upset "the system" and we're back to square one. Family visits (our relatives all live overseas so they come to visit for a week or so at a time frequently), teething, play dates, heat, colds, you name it. I just keep trying to put one foot in front of the other.

I don't know if anyone sleeps all night. I certainly wake up a lot to pee or get water or just wake up and then fall back to sleep. If he can put himself back to bed without a lot of hassle I wouldn't worry about it. My two and a half year old doesn't sleep through the night either. We bedshare so sometimes I will hear her up and playing for a second before she lies back down. She just stopped nursing at night after a week of hell but now she knows that we only nurse when the sun comes up. I thought it would cut down on the nightwaking but it hasn't- fortunately though she no longer disturbs me when she wakes up.

mine also did not sleep thru until recently, found out the milk he was drinking gave him stomach cramps, muuucchh better now. I agree, maybe a night light or a favourite teddy to help soothe/comfort him.
