Q.

nosleep

My daughter is 16month and she does not want to sleep she goes to bed at 20h00 or some times at 21h00. During the night she wakes up 3 or 4 time regularly, and I am still breast feeding her, her diet is right and she eats healty. Why doesn' t she sleep?

She does'nt sleep because she is so used to waking up for her feeds at night. Please address your question to our Breast feeding Forum.I am sure that you will get good advice there.

Maybe it' s overstimulation? Make sure she takes regular daytime naps and that she has a decent bedtime routine - bathtime, feed, quiet time and then sleep time. Something like that. Nothing exciting before bedtime, else she' ll keep waking up. Also make sure she rests during the day. It' s vital for a good night' s sleep.
