My 22 month old boy is NOT sleeping well. He wakes in the night and will not go back to sleep. I have consulted with the doctor and tried the following: Chamomile tea, lavender bath, he has a consistent bed time routine, the doctor suggested Benadryl some nights as well as Melatonin for a week 1 mg (neither one of those are given the same eevening) Last night he was up from 12:00 am to 4:00 am. I am at a loss... ??? He also has a blanket that he takes to bed at night. Is there something I am missing...other suggestions? Thank you...

Is there something new going on in your household or in his life? Has he learned a new skill?

Yikes, this does sound frustrating! Is he still napping during the day? If so, how much?
