Why the sudden waking? You may be mystified as to why your little one has lost the ability to sleep through the night in the angelic way he or she used to, but it is actually quite common during your child’s development for their sleeping pattern to become irregular.
Many factors can affect your toddler’s sleeping, including the activities they participate in throughout the day, as contrary to belief, over stimulation of your toddler’s body and mind throughout the day can cause restlessness at night, causing frequent waking.
Significant changes of environment such as moving house, going on holiday, moving rooms or beds can affect your little one’s sleep, or a change such as the arrival of a younger sibling.
Conditions such as teething, and illnesses such as common colds, rendering your child bunged up in his or her sinuses, nose and ears, can also disrupt your little one at night. Changes in season could also affect your child’s sleep pattern, the cold or heat could cause your toddler to struggle with staying asleep, also any seasonal increased light levels may cause further wakefulness; black out blinds could help with this.
