  • I don't know if it's "normal" but my little girl turned two last September and she has never ever slept a night through. She wakes up looking to nurse at least once, often twice, a night.

  • My 5 year old rarely sleeps through the night...he gets up to pee and then ends up wandering around the house! My 3 year old has never slept the night through.

  • My son just turned 7 and it took him years to be able to sleep through the night. To this day he's still not a very good sleeper. It just may be the way your daughter is.

  • its just stressful to have to get up every night with my little boy and try to keep him sleepy

  • My daughter is almost 2 and she still wakes up in the middle of the night. It sucks but we will get to the point where she sleeps all night.

  • what i do is keep a sippy cup in my 2yr olds bed bc it became a habit where she wanted something to drink id have to get up get her and hold her while she drank. So if the water is right with them when they sleep you dont have to worry about that. Just let them know its with them at bed time. I started doing that with my 14 mo old too and she just drinks it when she is thirsty and falls back to sleep. either way, don't take them out of bed. They will fall back to sleep
