  • Be grateful he sleeps that much. My Jesse would only sleep with the breast in his mouth for 2 years OMG!

  • I got my son to sleep through the night by setting up a routine. He has a set bedtime (roundabout give or take 1/2 hr, bc I do not like to force it) bath, story, song, prayer. His body got used to the time and he was sleepy every night at this time. He never wanted to get in his crib but once I pull out his book he snuggles down and gets ready for it. I started this around 10 months old. He started walking then and didn't want to settle down at night.

  • He might be teething, try teething tablets you can find them at walmart, also you can try setting up a routine and stickting to it... they both worked with both of my sons

  • He could be teething... just stick to a regular routine. He might resist it for a while, but once he starts feeling better (or just gets used to the fact that you're not going to budge) he will start sleeping better. It will be tough on you for a while, but it'll pay off, I promise!
