first hi I have posted on a few other boards, but first time here.

My question is this: I have a friend whose LO just turned a yr old (today actually) and she has been talking to me about his sleeping habits. Apparently he wakes up 2 to 3 times a night and wants to stay awake and play. She works, so she can't really form to his schedule. Her DH is completely against co-sleeping and the only advice she is getting is CIO.

I live in a very small southern town, and, well, people just don't get AP or anything involved with it, so it's all very new to her too and its hard for me to give her advice on this particular issue because I ever had this problem, my DD moved into her own bed bc she came to me one day and asked if she could, lol. So i just dont know what to tell her.

Can anyone give me some articles or just some advice? Thanks so much!

Where does the LO currently sleep? Has this been going on so long that it seems to be more than just a phase?

My dd is 10 months and still gets up several times a night. Is she BFing? I have stared to only offer Bella the boob every 3 hours at night. Any time she wakes up between that is her getting rocked back to sleep.

I am also getting ready to get the book "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" to see if it will help us out.

I really enjoyed that book! Lilyana is only 2.5 months old, but I have read it and can see where a lot of the ideas will come in handy! I hope it helps!

he has been in his bed, in his own room and apparently this in nothing new at all. she says he has never slept through the night. and he has never slept with them

no she doesnt bf, he still has a bottle though and i think she gives it to him when he wakes up.

my understanding is that the problem isnt that he is just waking up its that he is waking up and not wanting to go back to sleep and they are staying up for hours at a time
