  • Unfortunately just normal! None of my 3 children slept through the night until they were two.
    Check the usual things like not too hot or too cold, not hungry, you could try letting them self settle for a bit.

  • warm drink before putting down to settle. Make sure not too hot or cold. If any chance of teething then try some Panadol

  • My baby is also having the same issue :(

  • A paediatrician might be able to give you some good tips. My son has just turned 2 and has only just started sleeping through the night on and off

  • How are they sleeping now?

  • i hope all is going well

  • Hope you have managed to find a way to help them sleep better.

  • Won’t sleep at all or won’t sleep through. A lady at the chemist told me her child would micro sleep and it would seem like they never slept at all!

  • I hope for your sake soon they will sleep during the night

  • Sounds like your baby wants to be an owl

  • Any advice below helped since your post?
