My toddler is still waking and feeding throughout the night. Is this normal?
“I thought sleep was supposed to be better by now?!”
We hear you. We’ve all been taught the beautiful lie that sleep gradually gets better as children age.
Sadly this is not reality. The reality is that baby sleep isn’t linear, it’s a rollercoaster. There’s times when it improves, and times where it plummets. Understanding this is the key to coping. If you know it’s normal and expected, you can plan for it, and have strategies in place to help everyone cope. If you believe it’s abnormal, you’re going to be stressed and searching for answers which isn’t conducive to maximising sleep.
