My 1 Year Old Wakes Up At Night
1 year old sin doesn't sleep at night, never has. He fusses all night & wakes up at least 4x tossing and turning. Has never slept 1 full night. Help?
Sleep: Develop a bedtime routine - bath, story or song, then bed at the same time every night in his own bed. His last nap of the day should end no later than 3:30 or 4pm. Babies that age are naturally restless sleepers, it is ok for him to toss and turn but he need to learn to go back to sleep on his own. If he wakes up, check on him but don't pick him up. He will cry, cough, gag, etc. Dont give in! ...Read more
Doctor to evaluate: A ten month-old baby who starts crying hourly at night has a problem and should see his doctor. The problem could be ear pain, throat ulcers, head ache, tummy pain, tight clothes, fever, or something else that's preventing him from staying asleep. He may be starting a new viral or bacterial illness. If he is much better in the morning, that is reassuring, but his doctor needs to evaluate him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My breastfed baby started waking up at 6months, 1 time per night, now at 1year& he wakes up 4 times per night. What should I do& what is the reason?
The reason is most..: ....Likely that he has come to understand that when he awakens and calls out, you come into the room. A 1 year old doesn't need to feed 4 times a night if he's eating well in daytime. Check to make sure he's ok (dry, not feverish etc.), then don't pick him up or otherwise indulge him. If he's physically ok, leave the room. Expect him to scream. He needs to learn to self soothe. ...Read more
Sleeping problems: Try to establish bedtime rituals to help him fall asleep properly. Try to do the same things every night.

If wakes up again, wait 10 minutes and go to his room and do the same thing. Next time he cries, wait 20 minutes ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 2 month old sleeps for 7 hours at night. She never wake up for feeding. Should I forcefully wake her up and feed?
Let babies sleep...: If she is happy and growing, leave her alone. After 3 months of age, parents can give a feeding at 10 p.m. or thereabouts, and expect the baby to sleep 6 hours. If a normal baby sleeps 6-8 hours and is fine the next day, she'll eat enough during the day to make up for sleeping all night (and parents will sleep well at night, too). A normal 2-month baby sleeping well at night means lucky parents. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
