    Yes I am with you, my 4 year old son doesn't sleep through either and he won't go to sleep without us in the room with him. No advise sorry just thought you would like to know you are not alone.

    Best of luck
    This! I am an adult and wake up through the night... So I think it's normal my son does too. He does go back to sleep though

    What does she do when she wakes?
    What do you do?


    We play musical beds here - as our 6 year old and both 5 year olds still wake up through the night, not all of them every night... but more often than not we wake up with a little person or two in my bed and DP in their bed.

    If you think it's just for comfort, go with it.

    If you think it might be somthing underlying - get her checked ..the book 'fed up' by Sue Dengate has some good info on diet.

    Thanks everyone. Feel a bit better now. Generally when she wakes she doesn't want anything, she comes wakes me up, I take her back to bed and say go to sleep and she does. If DH is dealing with she sometimes gets upset cause she wants to see me. One thing I considered was that she often wakes and takes her night nappy off ( she was toilet trained at night at the same time she slept through and she started waking and wetting at the same time). We live in teh North and my kids are pretty much naked all year round and in general don't like wearing clothes. It could be her nappy making her uncomfortable...I could live with it ( I do live with it) but 4 year olds need more then 3-4 stretches of sleep at a time. You can live longer without food then you can without sleep...!!! The failsafe diet was the one I was thinking of - has anyone tried it? It looks very hard!!!

    No advice - just a big my DD is the same. Four years of no sleep. She sleep walks and has nightmares nearly every night.
