Back to Advice about Sleep


From: Laura

My son has very rarely slept through the night. He sleeps with me, and we both enjoy this arrangement. The biggest problem now is that he thrashes and thrashes all through the night. My boy is very very active during the day and my doctor says it's just an extension of his daytime activity. I am concerned that it might be some other problem--but my doctor doesn't think so. Does anyone have any experience with this? What did you do? Do they grow out of it? I want him to get a good night's sleep, but he wakes himself up with his own thrashing. Thanks for any advice.
