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?

This is Dr. David

this is very common at his age.

this doesn't sound like a medical issue.

is 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.
Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

he is not too old for a rocker.

I see.

try to move the naps earier in the day.

that can help him sleep a bit better at night time.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
