This is quite a common problem and it is very tiring for parents.It is possible that having a full bladder or wet pull ups is causing your child to wake.If this is the case it make help to wake your child at about 10 or 11pm to use the toilet. Do not let him/her to come to your bed or sleep in your bed. If your child wakes up and appears next to your bed take him/her back to their own bed immediately. Eventually your child will get the message that it is no use trying to get to sleep in your bed.
