    Hiya,
    My son is now 21months old and he has always been a good sleeper up untill 6weeks ago,
    He is constantly waking up during the night wanting to come in my bed not drinking his milk in his cot,
    i have tried the crying method and it does get him to sleep or back to sleep but he wakes up in the middle of the night quiet a few times and then doesn’t sleep for another 3/4hours later.
    He does have a nap in the afternoon for about a hour i just dont know what to do its like sucking all the energy out of me he used be such a good sleeper,
    He sleeps in the same room as me but has his cot.
    Please help

    My 6.5 month old used to sleep through the night (about 7-7) with the occasional wake around 4-5am (she cries for a minute and puts herself back to sleep). Starting about 2 weeks ago, she started waking up at 9:30-10:30 like clockwork. She’ll cry and cry and is inconsolable unless I feed her. Sometimes she eats and other times she doesn’t and just falls asleep. Also, some nights she wakes up more than once during this one hour window. I just don’t know what to do.

    We started introducing solids about 2 weeks ago, and she got her second bottom tooth a week or so ago. So there’s lots going on.

    Is this a phase? Or am I creating a bad habit?

      Hi @Monique – Thanks for writing to us, and I’s sorry that your baby has stopped sleeping through the night and is now waking at 9:30-10:30pm! Whether it is true hunger, teething or tummy, or a habit, when you do go to her at this time and/or feed her, it is a good idea to place her back into her sleep space before she is all the way asleep, so she can have the chance to fall asleep on her own. This will help it from becoming a long term habit! Hopefully this is short lived and she will be sleeping well again soon! Please contact us if you need additional assistance! We’ve got a great team of sleep consultants with heaps of experience, waiting to help!
