My 1 year old son has the knack of waking up as soon as I go to bed. Whether I go to bed at 9pm or 1am or anywhere in between, when my head hits the pillow he wakes up. He is not in our room, he shares with his 3.5year old sister who sleeps like a log. Any advice to get him to stop doing this? I would really appreciate it.

Ask your question
  • Perhaps there are distinctive changes in the lighting or sounds of your home when you go to bed. It may be the switching off of lights and fans, or the opening or closing of doors. Maybe it’s the sudden absence of television noise or of your footsteps in the house.

    If any of these might be the key, try to eradicate the sudden change (eg try turning the TV down low, but not off).
