I need some help. Tj only naps for twenty or thirty minutes at a time and when it's bedtime he'll sleep for a few hours but always wakes up between 1 and 2 am and will only go back to sleep after 4 or 5. We've tried putting him on a schedule but it doesn't work. I'm afraid he's not getting enough sleep. He'll be five months tomorrow, when he was one month he'd sleep through the whole night and this just started, maybe a few weeks ago. He just started being really fussy.Answer Question

It's normal for children to not sleep throught the night until they are 3 or older. Your son's sleep pattern sounds perfectly normal. Actually sleeping 5 hours is considered sleeping throught the night. Some babies don't sleep (alone in a bed) during the day. They may nod off while feeding or in a car seat. Your baby may not go back to sleep at 1 or 2 because you want him to go back in the crib. If you put him in bed with you he might be able to go back to sleep. Sleeping with mom is the norm in most countries but is only safe if you are breastfeeding, no one smokes in the home, and you meet other safe co-sleeping guidelines.
