  • My son didn't sleep through the night until he was a year old. It just happens all of the sudden.

  • My DS is 13 months and still doesn't sleep through the night. It has to happen eventually, right?

  • Just be patient. One of mine didn't sleep through the night until she was over a year. Sometimes they go through phases and it really reassures them that you're there when they wake up, or they go through growth spurts and are really hungry. Hang in there, we all get through it :)

  • You know what? It's normal. She's waking because that's what babies do. Sleep patterns are purely temporary in the first year.

    You might give her a lighter dinner, though. Big meals before bed tend to wreak havic with blood sugfar, leading to waking when it plummets.
