Nope sorry.  Are you still breastfeeding?  He may need more nourishment before bed to satiate him throughout the night.  Make sure he does not sleep too long in the day.

I was just about to post about this! Teddy had been doing really well: asleep at 9, up for a nip at 4 (for about 2 mintues) then asleep until 8am. Then came the teeth, then everything went to pot. At the moment it is 5am and I am in the living room with Teddy, who is wide awake rocking away in his swing as if its noon! He hasn't slept more than two hours all night and I've tried everything, so as a last resort I stuck him in his swing and put on some Beyonce (his favourite).

Teddy sleeps with us as well, he never took to the crib. I breastfeed but Teddy gets ALOT of other food as well, so I'm pretty sure he's not hungry. I have no idea!

Why does she sleep during the day instead of at night

 I never had that problem but I'm sure other mommies have ... here's a bump for you.

Anabel is only 6 months old so I kind of expect her to still do this occasionally.  A friend of mine has 15 month old son and he was doing this.  Eventually she got sick of it and just ignored him at night and apparently that worked.  He sleeps from 9pm to 9am now.

I stopped breastfeeding awhile ago (well, Drake stopped) but i know he still gets enough before bed. maybe it is his teething like yurs? Drake is the same exact way. He rarely wakes up like that hungry.

idk what to do. i get so exhausted. DH is always curious as to how i go to bed early yet im still dead tired throughout the day.

I am probably going to get ridiculed for saying this but we turned the monitor off when he was 9 months old. He was awake every hour and a half to breastfeed. For his sanity and mine we began trying everything. We tried co-sleeping and every 'soothing' method there is and nothing worked! We were both always so grouchy! One day I just said "I HAVE to get some SLEEP!" I turned off the monitor one night and that's all it took. I turned it back on the next night and he did not wake up at all for 2 weeks. He did relapse after that, lol. We went through it all over again for a few weeks when I decided to try again. It probably took 3-4 days of the monitor being turned off and he has slept through the night ever since. But every baby is different. What works for one won't work for another. Just thought I'd share, perhaps it will work for you.
