This is ridiculous!
Well, Lukas is 11 months old and STILL not sleeping through the night. I was ok with it when it was once a night, but with the cold he has now it's insane. Last night he was up at 10:30, 12:30, 2:00, 3:30 and up for the day at 5:15. And then his brother woke up at 4:45, so dh had to get up with him.

I need someone to tell my boy that he's not a newborn any more. Last night he drank 16 ounces of formula between 10:30 and 3:30. Ugh!

I can't imagine anyone else here is struggling with a kid who won't sleep through the night. Honestly, I can't wait until his 1 year checkup to see what the doctor has to say.

:wave: Lucy has NEVER slept thru the night Rudi and I look like the living dead because of it. she has gotten closer in the last month alright but then I was away for a week and that screwed that up so now we are back to waking 2-3 times. I decided on water only for the nightime wakings thinking this will put a stop to it but NO missy likes water likes it ALOT :lol: she does got back to sleep straight away but I'm still out of my bed.

anyway when you find the miracle cure let me know and for you :bighug:

water was my peds reccomendation when Ty was 10+ months not sleeping through the night, he was only up once a night and would go directly back to sleep aft eating but it was killin me! needless to say, the water did help but it took a little while - good luck, I know its so hard, and I hope it gets better for you

If he's drinking 16oz- maybe he's hungry-- try and get more in him during the day and cut back to water at night-- so he learns to stock up during the day ykwim?? also- if he likes the water too then I think it's the 'sucking' that is soothing him back to sleep... and that's harder to change for sure....
