I have a 19 mo ds that isn't sleeping throughout the night. I have 3 older children and they all three slept throughout the night by the time they were 3 mo it was only about a 5-6 hour stint but I always remember thinking "man what is everyone talking about this isn't hard!" anyway my ds of 19 mo has a routine (like they have) and goes down at 8:00, by 12:00 he is up again, then he's up again around 2:00 then again at 4:00 or 5:00. Sometimes he wakes up twice a night sometimes he wakes up 6 or 7 times a night. He doesn't calm down until I come and get him and hold him... Or more often since I'm so exhausted put him in my bed with me.
Can someone please shed some light on this for me please?
