    Default New study finds genetics is what decides how well your baby sleeps.

    This just popped up in my newsfeed, a new study finding that genetics determined how well your baby sleeps and that some can't be sleep trained, that no matter how hard you try, if they are a child genetically wired to wake frequently then they will, although there may be a window at 18 months where they are more effected by environmental factors and their sleep changes.

    Thanks Holly. While I have vowed to stop reading sleeping threads on here as my kids sleep isn't a priority in my life anymore I agree whole heartedly with this. So many people anecdotally report this fact. Doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

    That's comforting yet terrifying all at once to know my 3yo could always be a crap sleeper waking frequently through the night.

    Please please I hope she gets better though.

    Default New study finds genetics is what decides how well your baby sleeps.

    At the risk of getting flamed (again) I think this supports the 15/15/70 stat the sleep clinics use which is 15% will sleep well, 15% badly (in both cases no matter what you do) and the rest (ie 70%) will have some good nights and some bad and while you can improve those by eliminating environmental factors or other influences you largely won't alter the result. It's definitely true of my 4. They all now mostly sleep well but still wake 2 to 3 times a week on average requiring varying degrees of input from us to resettle.

    DSS my worst sleeper of the 4 improved somewhere around 5 yo. She's still not perfect (takes forever to go to sleep at night and often wakes at 4am but resettles as soon as we put the dog in bed with her). But big improvement from sleep walking and night terrors.

    I can remember waking in the night and dragging my pillow and blanket into my parents' room to sleep on their floor with the dogs whenever I was scared. They'd wake up and there I would be. ☺️. DS had a night terror a few weeks ago, it was awful😢.
