My one year old wakes up at 2am every night for no reason. Any suggestions on what I can do to help this?

My one year old wakes up at 2am every night for no reason. Any suggestions on what I can do to help this?

Don't reinforce: The most common reasons: 1). If he falls asleep anywhere other than his own bed, 2) if you feed, rock, talk to him or put him in your bed when he night wakes 3) if he has a bottle or pacifier that rolls out of the crib. If ignoring the night crying is not for you, there are graded ways to do so in dr ferber's 2006 edition of his book on sleep. ...Read more

Why does my 1 year old wake up multiple times a night? It's only enough for us to place his pacifier back in.

Some Do: Some babies are light sleepers. It sounds like you may need to let him fuss it out, learning how to sooth himself and fall back asleep. It may be hard at first, but will be much easier in the long run. ...Read more

My son is 1 year old. He had adenoidectomy 3 weeks back due to snoring & sleep apnea. He still snores and wakes up at night. Is this normal? Next step

Mgt: It can occur, especially in the early post operative period.
Were his tonsils also removed? There are many areas of the airway that can contribute to snoring. Usually a nasal steroid is prescribed to reduce nasal swelling.

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?

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. Don't give in! ...Read more

My 1 year old son is teething and not sleeping through the night. Wakes up screaming. Falls asleep but as soon as I put him down he wakes. Advice?

Help with teething: Generally Ibuprofen is much more effective for teething than acetaminophen.You can also let your baby chew on a cold teething ring. Some parents have found camilia really aids in teething discomfort. It is important you do not give your baby more than four doses of Acetaminophen per day. Acetaminophen really challenges the liver. Massaging the gum tissue with a soft bristle brush can also help. ...Read more

My one year old baby never sleep well. Iam fed up with him. He is go to sleep very difficult and wake up during the night 6 or 8 time until morning.

Routine: Help him by having a routine - same time each night, quieting the house, limiting exposure to TV, possibly a bath and a bedtime story.

My one year old used to sleep through the night mostly. Recently, waking up at 3am and will not go back to sleep unless fed. Normal? Growth spurt?

My one year old used to sleep through the night mostly. Recently, waking up at 3am and will not go back to sleep unless fed. Normal? Growth spurt?

If you haven't: Already done so, take him/her to his/her pediatrician to make sure that nothing physical is wrong (ear infection/teething). If you've done that already, then it would be important to not have him/her continue this habit. A one year old should be able to eat enough during the day and not need to eat in the middle of the night. So hopefully, this is just temporary, & could be a growth spurt. ...Read more

My 1 year old baby keeps on waiking up at night sometimes to eat sometimes to pkay or just move to much why is that? We've tries everything!

Unfortunately, you: Can't do this for him. You have to ignore the behavior for it to go away;playing/feeding reinforces it. Have a consistent bed time & routine; read, rock, brush his teeth & let him learn to fall asleep in his own bed. If you can't ignore his night-crying without going into his room, sit in a chair without talking or making eye contact, moving your chair closer to the door nightly. See www. Aap. Org. ...Read more
