I have a 20 month old son who STILL gets up during the night to be fed, he acts as if he's hungrier during the night instead of during the day. He hardly ever slept through the night. Its only happen a maximum of 3 times. I feed him constantly during the day & even once more before he goes to bed. I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

Hey.

I have a 20 month old doing exactly the same thing. I read an article the other day and thought I'd give it a try. It has totally worked for me.

When you put your wee one to bed, keep he routine as normal, however when it comes time for you to go to bed, go to your toddler and gently rouse him with a hug and a kiss and say that you're going night night too. It will apparently break his REM cycle and settle him back down into a peaceful sleep.

I've tried this 2 nights in a row and it has worked both nights. I don't put on any lights and keep my voice as quiet as possible.

It may or may not be successful for you, every child goes to the beat of their own drum! Something to think about though. Hope you find a solution soon. x

Tonight I half & half everything. I'm trying hard as I can to get this sleeping all night a possible thing. It's very drainful having to go through this. I actually tried nursing him while he was an newborn but wouldn't latch on. I'm hoping this works.

To be honest, he just got up. Its usually every 2 & a half hours he gets up hungry. I try to feed him very good before bed so he wouldn't get up at night for eating.

No nursing at all . Once he gets cup of milk, tea, etc. He goes right back to sleep til it's time to get up again.
