Getting my 1 year old to finally sleep through
I have a little boy who has just turned 1 and have been tackling sleep throughout his life. He has never had a fall night sleep or even close to be honest.
He wakes anything from once to 6/7 times or wakes once but stays awake for two gruelling hours!!
I have listened to friend and family advice and different techniques as; 2 minute leave and cry method, calming music, bedtime routine, nursery rhymes, star lights, white noise and although some have worked for him to fall asleep he doesnr stay asleep longer than 2-3 hours.
i have tried no milk during the night, so his last bottle is before he goes to sleep around 9-9:30 and only water in the night until we get up for the day around 7 where I’d give him another (and gave him milk through the night too, say around 3am) but both still hasn’t stopped the waking up, I’ve tried different clothing/temperatures, lavender oil- you name it I’ve tried it!! Also when he wakes in the night you can see how tired he is where he literally falls over with exhaustion but he will drag his head back up so he sits up it’s so strange!! I just want to say sleep if you’re tired surely?
I really do not know what else to do and where to turn and would really appreciate any new advibe anyone could give.
Thanks so much x
