Help! My 10 month old will not sleep. He goes to bed at 7:30 or 8:00 and sleeps until 10:00 and then got up around 12:30 and then back up at 2:30 where I finally gave up and put him in the bed with me because I get up at 5 AM for work. Up until two weeks ago he was sleeping 5 hours straight. He has a routine and eats cereal or yogurt before bed. What can I do? I want him to sleep longer and in his own bed. Suggestions?
It sounds like the normal amount of times for a baby that age to wake. Babies of breastfed mothers will nurse more at night to make up for you being gone. If you are still pumping for bottles while you are gone, you may be able to stop. At about this age my granson could eat solids while my DIL was at work and breastfed several times at night. She sleeps with him and it wasn't a problem. He is 22 mo now and she says he only nurses twice at night now and she hardly wakes, he finds it on his own. She wants to breastfeed at least the 2 years recommended by the World Health Org because he has a lot of allergies.
It's normal for children to wake at night until they are three or older. None of my 3 sons slept through the night until they were over 3.
