    Default 3 year old just wont sleep through

    I know I'm hoping for a miracle that she will sleep all night! I have friends with a ds who has similar issues, a pediatrician prescribed an antihistamine which helps him sleep. They only used it for a short time and he began to sleep, has anyone used similar?

    Most doctors don't prescribe it, they'd recomend looking at the sleep behaviour first. I don't think there has been enough studies on antihistamines and kids, it would be horrible to see a reaction

    Where are you based? I know some good sleep specialists in WA.

    I'm in nsw unfortunately otherwise I'd love some recommendations. We went to tresillian early on with good results and techniques but I find this age group a whole different ball game

    Default 3 year old just wont sleep through

    I have tried phenergan with DS2 and it didnt work what has worked is putting him in his own bed in our room, he now sleeps through 6-5:30/6 every night it's not the ideal way but its the gentlest way that suited our family, we get bed space and we all get a full nights sleep.

    Default 3 year old just wont sleep through

    My 4 & half year old DS went through this about 12 months ago. He was waking up frightened. I bought a dreamcatcher & hung it above his bed. I'm not sure if it was mind over matter, but it did work. I hope your little one starts to sleep through, I know how exhausting it can be.
