Children usually pass through a phase of transition in and out of sleep stages throughout the night.

As the children grow in age you as parents might have observed that sometimes your children wake a little, check the clock, adjust a pillow, or roll over, before they fall back to sleep.

Children usually do this without fully waking up. These are actually sleep stages and the changes in these sleep patterns are quite probable as the children gow.

As a matter of fact there are several variables can disrupt a sleep pattern, including teething. Inconsistency with schedules, emotional upsets, or even a slight cold can also be disruptive, and can occur at any time throughout growing years, and even into adulthood.

If your child is passing through such a phase of disrupted sleep pattern it is always better you identify and recognized that at an early stage. Ideally it should take you a week or ten days’ time that you fix your attention to this change in sleep pattern.

You need to learn yourself and teach your child a new skill of self-soothing. You have several options, so it is important to think through what will work best for you, your husband and for your child .

There are many wonderful reference books that can guide you, including Dr. Richard Ferber’s “Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems.”
