    Default I think I'm going to regret asking this but...

    tell me about the sleeping and feeding patterns of your 15/16 month old.

    DD is usually awake around 5:30/6:00 most mornings, she has 1 day sleep that lasts from 30 mins to an hour. Very occassionally she will have a longer sleep but that is RARE (ie once every 6 weeks or so). She will go to sleep at night around 7/8pm. She still wakes frequently during the night, often in 2 hourly intervals for a feed. (We co-sleep 'cos I aint getting out of bed to keep feeding her Unfortunately this means DF sleeps on a blow up mattress on the living room floor).

    I would estimate DD would still have around 10 breastfeeds during the day. If we go out she will have less but if we are at home then it's feeding time. She is very clingy at home but when she goes to childcare she waves me goodbye, no issues at all.

    So tell me about your 15/16 month old.

    My DD is 16 months. She goes to bed at 7pm in her cot. She's always been a pretty good sleeper - she self settles but not because of anything I've done! Most nights she sleeps through to 6am. Sometimes she'll wake at about 3 or 4am and I'll go pop her dummy in (she only has a dummy in her cot). She usually has one nap a day at 11am - for about 2 hours.

    She doesn't breastfeed anymore (she stopped at about 11 months) so she has a bottle of cow's milk after breakfast (210ml) and one before bed (210ml).

    From speaking to the mums at playgroup it's clear that the babies are all completely different and there is no "normal" routine!

    At 16 months Ds went to bed around 10pm - midnight, woke 4 - 10 times per night and our day mostly started between 7-8 am,
    No day sleep unless he was at daycare.


    He ate very little, living on Vegemite sandwich and breast milk.

    Day time he nursed 2-3 times per day and almost continuously over night, waking when removed from the breast.


    He is a bad sleeper and fussy eater though

    DS is 15 months now and goes to bed at around 7pm, nap at around 9am for an hour or so, BIG nap at about 12-1pm for at least 2 hours, sometimes up to 3, sleeps the whole night, very occasionally waking (usually when hes sick), wakes usually between and wakes between 7 and 7.30am.

    Sorry to brag i know im lucky but in all honesty, it sounds like your bub needs MORE sleep. For my kids sleep=sleep. As in, the more they sleep during the day the better they sleep at night.

    Id try and up the food shes having and spacing out the breast feed during the day. Of course is bfing her gets her back to sleep during the night, by all mean DO IT . If if you wantt o try and break the habbit of night waking id be trying to get her to eat more during the day (and more bfs during the day) so she got a full belly for the night.

    Have you tried a dream feed?? Just google 'dream feed'.
    Id also be trying to have her in her cot (unless you want to co-sleep of course). Could you maybe set up a mattress on the flood of her room (next to her cot). So when she wakes you can put her back in her cot and sleep NEXT to her. Just to make the transition easier on everyone??

    Sorry i hope i dont sound like a Know-all!!

    DS is nearly 15 months. His sleep patterns have improved amazingly since we cut tomatoes out from his diet. He wakes between 5-6am, goes to bed around 7.30. He sleeps through a lot of the time (he has been night weaned) and he naps for 1.5-3 hours during the day - he has one nap around 11 or 12.

    at that age DD was alternating between 1 sleep a day and 2.

    up 5.30/6am latest - I would wake her as I like to get stuff done in the morning with her before her nap.
    morning sleep (every second day or a quick one in the car) ~30-45min @ 9am
    afternoon sleep ~12pm for 2-3.5hrs (longer if no morning sleep)
    bed 7.30-8.30pm.

    We had nightweaned at this stage. But was feeding twice overnight at 11pm and 4am till 14mths.

    Our DD is 15 and a half months. She goes to bed at 7.30 - 8 and wakes at 8-8.30, although that's shifted by an hour with daylight savings. She cuddles to sleep with her dad at night and then when she wakes at night she insists on cuddling with me to get back to sleep. She co-sleeps (cos we all love it). We night-weaned nearly a month ago, but she still wakes around twice a night for cuddles. In the morning we feed in bed for around 40 mins.
    She has one day nap around noon for about 2 hours on average, but can be anywhere from 1-3 hours. She feeds to sleep and I lie with her for the whole nap because it means that she sleeps longer and I enjoy the downtime to read or faff on the Ipad.
    She feeds on demand, so the number of feeds varies enormously depending on what we're doing, but is often 10 or more feeds. She also eats HEAPS!
    I definitely find that sleep begets sleep and on the days that she sleeps 13 hours at night she'll often have a 3 hour day sleep. If she gets less than 14 hours in 24 hours she tends to be more grumpy and clingy.
    I also find she sleeps heaps more when we get outside and active in the morning.
