My 13 months boy is still waking up 2-3 times during the night and I’m back to work full time so it’s very hard to keep waking up to attend to my boy. All the babies from my mothers groups are sleeping thru the night already and I’m the only one left. Any comments on how to work this out??

  • My grandson is 10 months today and not sleeping through the night. I have a great great niece who slept through from 8 weeks. Babies truly are a mystery


  • Sorry to say that some kids just don’t sleep through. My grand daughter is two and only now occasionally sleeps through.


  • there are some good comments down but maybe try night lights and music


  • little things change your childs sleep pattern and teething is one or if they have been sick. My Grandson is almost 4 and he use to sleep through as a baby than he got sick when he was around 1 bad throat infections and that was it now my Daughter works in aged care and has my Grandson and her Hubby and she lives and cares for my Mother whom is full of cancer and her son never sleeps at night and has changed to sleeps of a day it’s an early night for my daughter if he is in bed by 1: 30 am. We had him one night and now we have said we are sorry but in future only a few hours as he does not stop. She limits him now to 20 mins sleep off a day to try and help him sleep at night.


  • i hated hearing all the mum say how good their baby was and slept the whole night. I used to think why the hell wont my kids sleep. I think most mummys are like use and get no sleep. its just not fair


  • routine. make sure he has enough to eat before bed . Burp him so theres no wind. make sure his warm enough.


  • Thanks for the response. I’m trying everything at the moment and I’m sure I will work it out soon.


  • I am having the same problem :(


  • there are many ways of getting your child to sleep through the night but finding one which suits you and your child will change your life as it will give you and your child more energy, happiness as you won’t be so tired from a disturbed nights sleep. good luck and it takes time for results.
