1 year old sleeps in our bed

I have to admit that we allow our 1 year old to sleep in our bed with us as otherwise they will not go to sleep and keep us awake most of the night. This became so draining that we gave in. I still don't get a proper nights sleep though as am conscious they are there.

I really want to try and break this habit - how would I go about doing this?

Re: 1 year old sleeps in our bed

Thanks for your message.

Again, I would recommend you visit this website https://www.basisonline.org.uk/ - lots of advice around why babies sleep and where https://www.basisonline.org.uk/where-babies-sleep/ which you may find helpful.

There are methods for this such as Gradual Retreat and Rapid Retreat but unfortunately we don't deal specifically with children under 12 months.

I do hope this is helpful
