16m little man might wake once a night. A quick cuddle and then I lay him back down w/ his blankie and pacifier and he's good to go

Re: Whose solo-sleeping kids still wake at night?

I have a 4yr old dd and 2yr old ds. They share a room and ds still wakes up more often than not. Sometimes not at all sometimes 3/4 times a night. I had been going in there, covering him back up etc but DH thinks he wakes more often when I go in. So I stopped going in and now DH just tells him to go night night through the door. It's actually working better, dh was right He hasn't woken up in the last three nights.

Re: Whose solo-sleeping kids still wake at night?

My 18 month old usually wakes once a night, some nights not at all and some he wakes 3-4 times...Just depends on if he has a bad dream or something scares him. He is afraid of the dark like I am and so when he wakes at night he gets really scared even with his night light. I usually go in there and let him know I am still there and give him a kiss and hug and lay him back in bed and he goes right back to sleep. Some nights, if he has had a bad dream, he will wake more often and won't go back to sleep unless you lay on his bed with him until he is out.

How old are they? almost 4 months
How many times do they wake? once around 2am
How do you get them back to sleep? feed her, swaddle her and put her back in her crib
The night waking started about a months ago, she was sleeping through the night at about 7 weeks old. I can't complain though because she does sleep for 6-7 hours straight before waking.

DD is 2y9m. She wakes almost every night. If I go to her, she's goes back to sleep with me there. If I leave after she's asleep, she'll wake another time or two. If I just stay in bed with her she won't wake up again until morning.

All my kids solo sleep, but it's my 2 year old (26 months) that still wakes. Sometimes she'll go back to sleep on her own, other times we have to go in there and lay her back down and tell her it's still nighttime. Apparently she inherited DH's light sleeper gene.

My 2 year old still gets up at night,usually between 3 and 4 and needs/wants a drink. I will get the drink and put him back in bed. Sometimes he will get in bed with us though.
