Mine doesn't. My dd did starting at 2 1/2, so I guess I may have unrealistic expectations, but since she's sleeping- and I get ds (19 months to sleep) I keep wanting an hour or two to myself, but he wakes up again! I think I remember this with dd but its a blur to tell you the truth. We all co-sleep.<br><br>
So, do your toddlers stay asleep if you get up or need mommy to stay in bed all night?

My 14 month old mostly stays in bed. What I mean is, she goes to sleep between 8 or 9 pm, and I put her into bed with my DH. Sometimes she wakes up wanting to nurse, and I have to run in there and nurse her. But most nights she stays asleep until I get into bed (usually around 11 pm).

My ds is 28 months. Before nightweaning 4 months ago, he would wake up every hour until I came to bed, and then sleep for a 2-4 hour stretch. Now he goes to bed between 8 and 9, and usually doesn't wake up until 12:30 or so. If we bring him into bed with us at this time he'll sleep until 5:30 or 6, at which time he will want to nurse (I'm trying to wean him from this, or at least push it until later). If we leave him in our little bed which is in our room, or if I'm not in bed after the 12:30 wakeup, then he will wake up again in an other hour or so.

My almost 16 month old girls go to sleep in their room at around 8:30. They generally wake at around 12:30 and we put them in bed with us. Then they sleep til 5:30 or 6, but often if we snuggle them they will sleep again until almost 7.<br><br>
Recently I tried bringing them into bed with us when we go to bed around 11. I think I disturbed them because they flopped around and woke up a bit for the next hour or so. Now I just wait for them to ask to get in bed with us. And last night, they slept in their room til 5:30 !

My dd slept through the night pretty early on but not consistenly ever. She would go 2 weeks with great sleep and then not sleep well at all for another 2 weeks. At present she'll be 3 in 3 mos. and is in her own bed. Will wake up to be reassured 1-2 times a night but it's getting less as she's getting used to sleeping in her own bed in her own room. I remember the periods of the worst sleep came either before a milestone or when she was teething. Sometimes I didn't figure it out until after the fact.<br><br>

almost never.<br><br>
When dd does, she only sleeps for 20 minutes. I am so jealous of mothers that can put their babies to bed and have some "me" time. I keep hoping that some day I will, but recently the sleep issues have just gotten worse.<br><br>
I have put her on more of a schedule and it's helping. Good luck to you!

No, he does not sleep through the night.<br><br>
But I always leave the bedroom and go do whatever I feel like, anyway.<br><br>
I sit next to his bed until he falls asleep every night. (He is 28 months old, and has slept in a toddlerbed for 3 months. Before that he was in a crib for 4-5 months, and before that we coslept.)<br><br>
He usually goes to sleep around 7-7.30 PM, and we get up in the morning around 8AM. So I am very lucky that way.<br><br>
He almost always wakes up 1-2 times in the evening. But I can just go into the bedroom and tuck him in again, and he will be asleep again before I have time to go out the door again...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
I usually go to bed at 11-12 PM, and he will sometimes wake up and come sleep next to me when I go to bed. Other nights he will stay in his own bed until late night/early morning.<br><br>
But we always wake up in the same bed...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

before i started night weaning my 21mo dd, she would wake up to nurse 3-4x a night and then nurse for hours, keeping us both up. last month i started night weaning her. if she woke up, i offered her water, and rocked her to sleep, but no nursing between 10pm-4am. now she sleeps pretty much through. she only wakes up around 3am to sips some water and then she goes back to sleep. we co-sleep too.

With our oldest, she didnt sleep through the night consistantly till after she turned 3.<br><br>
DD #2 at 16 months DOESNT sleep through the night, she gets up at least twice a night. She teething right now so... I am so tired.<br><br>
Our kids go to bed when we do, oldest in her own room youngest with us. Youngest cant sleep with ANY lights on so when I get up at 4:30 to start breakfast and pack dh's lunch guess who gets up with us<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> . She normally goes back to sleep within a half hour of me going back to bed. Oldest doesnt like to sleep with activiety going on in the house. So needless to say no just me time at night or dh and I time for that fact.<br><br>
The girls wake up every morning at 8:30 wether I am ready to get up or not.<br><br>
I am very tired. I am looking forward to when we wean dd, but thats not for another 8 months, maybe by then her sleeping habits when change, hopefully?!
