I need tips on how to get my one year old to sleep through the night

How would you define “sleep through the night” and how long does your child normally sleep? Also, how many naps does your LO take?

Lol 8 hours straight , I hear some mommies say their baby sleep the entire night. My little one wakes up 4 times and just whines or crys . She takes one nap a day 3 hours long, if we go somewhere then she will nap again in the car but if not she will not nap a second time.

My LO is 2.5 and is still up multiple times in the night.  She dropped her naps at 18mo. I think some kids just are not good sleepers in general.

My 2.5 year old still wakes up during the night to nurse or for comfort but then goes straight to sleep. 

Does your LO go back to sleep? Or wakes up for a couple hours again? It’s not actually normal for a child to sleep straight through the night.

My daughter sleeps 80-60 without waking. She has since she was 6 months. My son didn't do that until he was almost three years old. Just depends on. The child

Is your LO still breastfed? Mine has been breastfed since birth, and is now 1 and doesn't sleep through the night. I have heard that formula babies usually sleep through the night.

My son sleeps from around 915p-730a each night. It took over 6 months to get him to that level. We finally found what worked for us. He sleeps with a air purifier on in the room. This helps cut out any background noise that could cause him to wake.

That's a great idea, trying white noise of some kind. Some kids just take longer than others to get to that point, unfortunately. Maybe try adjusting bedtime/wake up time/nap time a bit to see if that helps at all?

I think that every baby is different. With my 1st son, he would wake up for a bottle feeding , change of diaper and then go back to sleep. When he was one he started to sleep through the night more. Maybe your baby will start sleeping more soon too. My cousin uses a bottle of warm oatmeal cereal milk and it seems to work for her kids. I've never done that, because I guess I never had to, but maybe it can work for your baby too.

My 15 month sleeps for around 8-10 hours each night, thankfully. He, however is a very difficult child to put to bed. Is there any thing in particular waking your little one? Noises, lights, dogs, etc? If so, try to eliminate these factors, and see if your little one then sleeps through the night.

Unfortunately, I definitely agree with Alissa. My 2.5 year old is the same way. I once asked the Doctor what to do and she told me “some babies just don’t need as much sleep” 😑😑 - that was my reaction 😂.  I have enforced the same parenting styles with all of my children and each one is different. I try to be active with them as much as I can each day to try and burn energy to help sleep better.

Even with the best parenting skills, some babies just don't do well at bedtime. Some long for that connection to their parents, half-way through the night. Try a noise maker, or light projecter to help make bedtime peaceful. Stay consistent with your routine. Hang in there, mama!

I say a consistent schedule and bedtime routine and in bed by 70 pm!

Wait...kids are supposed to sleep through the night?????? I think some kids are better sleepers than others. That being said, having a white noise maker or soft music really made a difference in our house. But, make sure you pick the same thing and use it consistently.

Total darkness, white noise sound machine and just letting him cry worked great. The crying part only lasted a couple of days then we all have slept wonderfully since. I tried many sound machines and this seemed to help the most: https://www.amazon.com/Marpac-Zohne-Portable-Sound-Conditioner/dp/B00CRKED6S

Have you tried dream feeding? We dram feed every night and it has worked wonders!
