    Default 13 month old waking all night!!!

    My DS1 has just turned 13 months old and he is waking constantly at night. He has never been the best sleeper ie he doesn't sleep through the night but he doesn't usually wake this much. He goes to bed anywhere between 6.30pm and 8pm (depending on his day sleeps) and up until a week ago he wakes at about 4.30am for a drink then back to sleep. He had a cold a week ago and was waking constantly because he was coughing but the cough has gone and he is still waking up constantly. I have been heating his room now that its getting quite cold so I don't think its that. He is trying very hard to walk at the moment and I am transitioning him from formula to cows milk. I wouldn't have thought this could disrupt his sleep but maybe? Anyone else been though this?

    I did when DD was the same age and regressed a bit from when she was sick and getting her molars. Once the teeth were through, she would still wake and when I went to her she would just start chatting away so I knew she was past the teeth and illness.

    I actually just had to leave her to cry. I couldn't rock her pat her back to sleep and she had already dropped her night feeds. She only cried 10 minutes and went back to sleep.

    I'm not sure if you'd be comfortable doing that but if you're sure there's nothing medically wrong with him and he's not in physical pain, that would be my suggestion.

    Good luck OP

    if you are concerned that the cows milk might be causing the change, can you just go back to formula and see what happens. is the formula based from cows milk?? or try a different milk? soy? another thought, could his room be too hot?? it is so hard to know what is wrong. we just have to keep guessing. ? marie.
