My baby is 18m old. She doesn't sleep for more than 3hrs at a stretch. She cries in middle of the night. She does this every alternate days. Her diet is less. But i gv her milk in the middle of night. But she hardly drinks. last meal i make sure is grains. I thut it might be earpain or noseblock or gas problem. Ped says its nothing. But she sleeps immediately when i gv her metacin or carmacide which is rarely. Please help. I m fed up for lack of her sleep which is i m sure irritating for her also. Any homeopatheic or ayurvedic medicines

Hi my frnd, My son too doesn't sleep at a stretch more than 3 hrs. sometimes he wakes up for every hour which irritates and make me so tired the next,even he will feel the same. One reason for his less sleep is no intake of rice,he jus hate the sight of rice since 2. 5 months. so I completely changed his timetable. I give 150ml warm millk beaten with sugar n egg around 8pm. Aft tat he have nothg,next he have 120ml milk shake or plain milk with honey bef bed. I used to tell bed time story and as I reach mid way he would have slept. I put him in upside down posture for better long time sleep. It works a lot. I adopted this posture since his 6th month. Change the posture n try. Even he doesn't drink milk in mid of his sleep but yes water. Make ur room environment friendly for sound sleep. Hug or place a hand on,so they feel safe and warmth. this too worked. Now v rarely he wakes up.

My son did the same thing till last month. But I did somr changes post which he sleeps through the night. 1 I feed him by 8:30 tats his last meal of the day. Which includes anything tat we eat. 2 I have set bed time routine. soon after dinner I bath him, brush his teeth get him in night suit m off he goes to the bedroom 3. Bedroom is mildly lit. no t. v. no mobiles. 4. I read a book for him. meanwhile he has his milk and falls of asleep on his own I have stopped swaddling him to sleep. In case he wakes up in night he again sleeps on his own. Stop giving milk at night. More milk means more urine. That could also be the reason for her waking up. Hope this helps
