: Hi everyone, my daugther just turned 1 on the 5th of this month. She is a very head strong little girl.

: We have had issues with her sleep since she was born, and it took her forever to start sleeping through the night. She started sleeping through the night around 9mos. and that only last a short period of time. She started being very restless through the night around 11mos and now we are right back into the routine of her getting up frequently throughout the night and even requiring a bottle at times. DH and I are at our witts end with her...We just want to get some sleep...LOL!

: I don't know what to do about this problem and to top it off for the past couple of weeks she has turned into an early bird. She is up no later then 6am. in every morning even after having a sleepless night. She used to get up around 7:30ish.

: HELLLP! Please, can anyone make anything out of this or give me any hope that she will have a normal sleep routine eventually?

: Thanks

: Jennifer S.

I will reassure that yes, at some point you both will get full nights of sleep. Don't press the issue too much though, if possible. That is what i had to learn. DS was the same way. He just recently started to sleep through the night. One thing that helped us, was when he came off the bottle. He gradually stopped waking for the nighttime "feedings". He is almost 16 mos and once I stopped worrying so much about it, we all rested better. Good luck!
