  • Hummm.....I am in the same situation with my 15mo. old son, but he is now waking up 2 or 3 times a night. It is hard for me to hear him cry. I think he is doing it stil because i respond as soon as he cries hard. I think the only way to get LO to sleep through the night is to let them self-soothe themselves back to sleep. It will be difficult for a couple of nights, but if we keep responding to them they will keep doing it. My son has done this sence he was born and personally i am t ired all the time!!

  • It could be nightmares? My son has never been a great sleeper except for the past few months,.but he will still wake if he's teething or sick.

  • Thanks guys! I think I will just have to let her cry for a bit longer each time. I need to get some sleep too!
