  • How old are they? If they are older are you putting them to bed to early? Are they active during the day? All of these factors play a part into their sleep habits.

  • Age certainly does matter in situations like this. Also, are their bellies full? They may be waking up hungry. Maybe noises scare them awake or lights.

  • **smile** The Holy Grail of paren ting...and about as obtainable as the original.

    Check out "The No Cry Sleep Solution" by ELizabeth Pantley. There are editions for infants and toddlers.

    Bear in mind that an infant uncer one year is very UNLIKELY to sleep all night no matter what you did. When you signed on for the mom gig, you did sign away eight hours straight sleep. **smile**
