  • It depends on the kid. My son, when he was 3, woke up occasionally when having to potty or had a bad dream but not regularly, and not often.

  • If he's waking up crying, and its a fairly new development, could be an ear infection.

  • I would say at this point none. On occasion is one thing but I don't think for most 3 yr olds it is an every night occurance. I would talk to my doctor about it.
