What causes disturbed sleep in a toddler? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
I have a 2 year old daughter
at night she will sleep around by 9-9.30 PM
but again she will be waking up for milk by 12.30 or 3 or any random time
and even keep moving and shifting in bed
is she having complete sleep?
I see, do you think she is having trouble breathing in her sleep?
no trouble in breathing
she would even sometimes speak some random words
such ok..ok..i will eat,i do not want etc
Ok. This is all pretty normal for a 2 year ols.
i would suggest you cut back on sugarry foods before bed though
she has Nan pro 4 milk before sleeping
we are trying to stop that by givng her pediasure
but she is not willing to have it at night before sleeping
and without bottle in her mouth she is not sleeping
This is a pretty normal weaning problem.
Can you try and feed her a bit earlier before bed?
Also, can you try to burp her before you put her down?
if I try to feed her before sleep again she asks for milk
and in case she is rolling on bed and if I Pull her straight position she gets disturbed soon
Ok, over time, give her smaller and smaller feeds before bed. She will get used to it.
and then again she wants bottle
Age 2 is difficult as children will still demand regular feedings at night, they will gorw out of it as they grow in size.
ok..but due to all these movements does she get complete sleep
day time she will sleep once but for almost 3 hrs she sleeps
Children sleep differently from adults. They're sleep is broken up through the night and day
They only get a normal day night cycle by age 4 or 5
Do you have any more queries?
No Dr XXXXXXX .Thanks
