My 21mo still wakes 3 - 5 times a night, very briefly but needs me to go to him before he will settle down. I don't stay with him, just a quick tuck in. At bedtime he self settles alone. Read this article now I'm worrying he will end up with issues due to frequent night waking!

My 21-month-old is an awful sleeper, and I'm not worried smile

Thank you 53rd, that's very reassuring! At the moment it's his teeth - it's so sad when he wakes and say's 'hurt, Mummy, hurt'. Poor thing!
