Reasons toddlers wake during the night?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My DD wakes up every 3 hours pretty regularly (has for months and months) and although we've tried an assortment of things, I really can't shake the impression that she needs to get milk (in a sippy cup) every 3 hours.  She hasn't really had reflux problems in the past, but does sometimes seem uncomfortable when she wakes up (??).  She sleeps in her own room.  Besides habit, what other things would make a toddler (21 mo) wake up?  Other things to try besides different "sleep solutions" (which we have tried without improvement).  Probiotics?  changing in sleeping arrangements?  Diet changes?

Mine was doing the same thing. We then figure out that it was a burping issue, gas. We now give her breast milk in a bottle 1/2 before bed and then read and sing for about 15 minutes after that ( just enough time for her to burp) then we actually put her to bed with just the other 1/2 of the bottle. Working well.
