We are having some issues with our 2 year old waking up in the middle of the night. Anyone have any suggestions or experiences with this?

Hello Kelly. My almost two year old is a late teether and will wake during the night if she is getting new teeth coming in. I also still feed her baby oatmeal before bed to top her off so she doesn't get hungry during the night. You may want to cut your naptime short as well. My daughter still takes a nap because she gets really crabby if she doesn't so I don't think she is quite ready to give the last nap up yet. Just a couple of suggestions. Perhaps put some board books in bed at night that may help too. Good luck.

Hello Kelly!
My 2 year old daughter often woke in the middle of the night, but was happy as a lark lol :) She'd sit and talk to her stuffed animals and play for anywhere from 10-30 mins. I've stopped giving her her naps, and that has helped her to sleep through. Also, a small bedtime snack can help (especially if you eat an earlier dinner), children will often wake up if they're hungry. :)
