    What? He just sleeps 6 hours a night?! I highly recommend you look into a FAILSAFE diet (google fed up and sue dengate) it helped me with my older son, and I know a few mums with bad sleepers who have found it successful
    Yes, he sleeps on average about 6 hours uninterrupted per night. We don't need to place our child on an elimination diet as he's already fed natural foods which are devoid of additives, flavour enhancers, amines etc. Further, we have already had him checked and he has been given the thumbs up by our GP.

    Just because he doesn't sleep 15 hours a day doesn't mean there's something wrong with him. Granted, it's a bit taxing but some kids are like this.

    my ds usually does 8-10 hours very broken sleep (10pm/12am - 8am, waking 4 times on a good night) he never day naps for me and he's been like this since 14 months old (he's now 20 months)

Then 2nd nap is 3-4 hours after, usually for an hour (sometimes shorter though). Bedtime is between 7.30-8.30 and he wakes 6+ times a night x.x
    Omg.. 6 times a night! You must be so drained.. 2-3 times is exhausting enough..
    Does he wake for feeds or comfort or what?

    Haha yeah I'm pretty knackered, but after 6 months you kinda get use to it!
    It seems to be a combo of things, he is cutting molars atm so he is waking for comfort from that lately (and he has always been a shocking teether, he is constantly teething the poor boy). He needs to be fed (bf) back to sleep, loses it if DP tries to settle him which is hard. We co-sleep from about 12am onwards as I'm too tired getting up and down all the time. I made some big diet changes for both of us a couple of weeks ago, and started seeing some results with his sleeping. But this last week since his birthday party last weekend, I've been really slack with my diet so things literally went haywire again overnight. Vicious cycle, I'm tired so I eat crap, which seems to make him sleep worse, which makes me eat crap easy food etc etc etc. Back on form today though, so hoping things get better again. We do have a paed appt which I'm waiting to hear from the hospital about, to talk about his sleep & a vomiting issue he had (its stopped now since I cut dairy out).
    If there's no medical/food intolerance reason that could contribute to his wakings, then I'll probably look at sleep school cause I've tried absolutely everything and am out of ideas haha (which through all those experiences has me questioning whether its "bad" habits or something else is going on to make him so wakeful)
    Sorry for the novel lol

    Nearly 12mth old here. Down at 7pm sleeps thru to 6:30/7am. When at home with me (she does dc m,t,w) she does 2hrs in the morning at around 9am, then does another 2hrs at around 2pm.
    At dc she usually only does about 2hrs the whole day.
