Q.

PROBLEMS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT

MY SON IS 17 MONTHS OLD AND IS EXTREMELY BUSY DURING THE DAY. HE TAKES A 1 HOUR NAP IN THE AFTERNOON AT ABOUT 13:00. HE THEN GOES TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BETWEEN 20:00 AND 22:00. AFTER ABOUT 2 HOURS CONTINIOUS SLEEP HE WAKES UP EVERY HOUR UNTIL MORNING. IS THERE ANY NATURAL PRODUCT TO HELP OR PROMOTE HIM SLEEPING BETTER AT NIGHT, PREFERABLE A SYRUP ?

Paediatrician

This is rather unusual at his age. Does he eat well at supper time? Has he been checked to see if he has any problem causing him discomfort such as reflux or an ear infection.Please ask your paediatrician to see him.
