Customer Question

My son is 15 months and waking nearly hourly from about 2-3am, before that he does roughly 2 3 hour sleeps, and is nursed back to sleep. We have co-slept attachment parented by default/instinct I'm thinking we need to sleep train and its sleep association issues but could there be any medical issues at play? Any insight would be helpful we are all so sleep deprived! Thank you 😊

This is Dr. Davidthis is very common at his age.this doesn't sound like a medical he napping during the day?if you can cut down on napping during the day, he might sleep better at night time.a rocker could help him sleep at night time as well.let me know if you have questions.

He isn't too old for a rocker? Yes he has two naps but becomes very grumpy if he goes without them.
