Help – My Toddler Keeps Waking During The Night!

MOMS' ADVICE: It happens to the best of us. You think you’ve got over the sleepless nights, with baby finally sleeping through, lulling us into this false sense of security. When suddenly, wham! Your baby becomes a toddler and the sleepless nights start up all over again.

It’s completely normal for toddlers to have a sleep regression at this age. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the hardest for parents to deal with (sorry!).

What does 'sleep regression' mean?

Sleep regression refers to when a baby or toddler, who’s been sleeping well, suddenly starts to wake up frequently at night. They can also start refusing to nap during the day. Joy! This can last for up to six weeks, however it completely depends on your child and also how you, the parent, deal with this regression.

Why now?

Sleep regression is heavily connected to your baby’s mental and physical development. Toddlers of this age are going through an awful lot and, unfortunately, it can have a negative impact on their sleep routine. Put yourself in their shoes – when you are going through lots of change in your personal life or work is challenging you mentally, you might have a sleepless night or two.
