has anyone any advise for an 11 mth old who still wakes for a night bottle? I don't really want to do the "controlled crying" thing as I think it's very harsh.

idk how to answer this because i was blessed my daughter will take a nap at 11 or 12 and she can sleep till 4pm sometimes and go to bed at 7 or8 and not wake up till i do sometimes im the one wakeing her up, did or do you sleep with her bc my sister sleeps with 2yr old and she wakes up and leaves her "big girl bed" and jumps into bed with mommy and daddy and she just had another baby . i havent slept with mine sence she was 2or3 months i think you cant be a push over either thats why my niece sleeps because she knows she can get away i let my baby cry for a week at night no more then 15 or 30 mins (which is how much they can cry my doc says its heathy) idk if any of this makes sence lol

I have a 3 year old that was sleeping through the night the day he was born now my 9 month old is still waking about 3 times a night and what seems to work every now and then is feeding him his cereal (thick oatmeal will work too) about 2 hours before bed time then about an hour before bed time I give him a warm bath with that calming body wash and that seems to help him sleep better

My daughter is 2 now and still wakes at some point wanting Milk. It is fine with me because I know that she will grow out of it in her time. I have never tried to ste a schedule for her or push her to do anything that she isn't ready for and she set her own schedule as a baby and is very advanced in her learning. Her Dr. says as long as she has some sort of schedule wheather she sets it or We do it's fine. Just know that ALL babies are unique and that thats your baby's thing. I never let my daughter cry and never did. When she was a baby my mom would say, "It's ok for her to cry a lil." Not for me it wasn't and it still isn't. Just let your baby set his or her own pace for sleeping through the night and know that when they're grown you will wish you would hear "Mommy I want a sippy" in the middle of the night. Hope this helps!!!!

by the time my daughter was 11 mths old she was only having one nap a day it was from 1230 to 230 and then she would sleep all nite. If she had any later of a nap she would not go to bed at 930, and she would stay up until like 12, or she would get up in the middle of the night saying she was hungry. So maybe he is having to late of a nap or he is just only needing one nap a day earlier in the day.

Thanks for that but he's only 11 months old so I don't think curtailing his naps is the answer just yet. Think we'll just have to go with it and see does he grow out of it. Sure it's what we signed up for when we decided to become Moms!!

my two year old dont' sleep through the night, he wakes up wanting a cuppy or in my bed. So what we had to do with him is we went one day without a normal nap, that night we noticed he slept all night. Then we did one day with the normal naps, and he woke uo at 3am crying for his cuppy and wanting in our bed. So we just started limiting his naps and it has helped. Maybe your child takes too late of an afternoon nap? I hope this helps..GOOD LUCK

U cant force a baby to do anything the baby will decide itsself when he /she is ready to sleep throught he night on thier own my daughter slept through from 6 months but my brothers daughter who is same age as my daughter (2) still wakes in the night they will grow out of it in there own time. all children are different and grow out of waking up in the night on their own
