Toddler Question

I've noticed alot of people have older children so Im hoping matbe someone would have some advice. My ds is now 19months. When he was 4months he started sleeping through the night for about a month and since then he wakes during the night. Alot of the time he doesnt want a drink (we give him water in a bottle during the night because he wont drink from a sippy cup in bed) Sometimes I let him cry a little and he goes back to sleep but he still does that a few times. He has had ear infections but as of right now he doesnt have one and he isnt teething right now either. I just dont know what to do. I am 3months pregnant right now and I would love it if he was sleeping all night. I've kind of tried letting him cry it out but it just wakes him up in the middle of the night and all he wants to do is play then. He is in a toddler bed and has been for 4 months. I just dont know what to do to help him sleep better. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Maybe he's outgrown the toddler bed. I know my dd hated her toddler bed. It was way to small. We got her a double bed and it seemed to solve the problem. She still sleeps all over the bed to this day! LOL!

I see you said he was already in a toddler bed, cause my first suggestion was to move him out of his crib....when my dd was 18 months, I was 4 1/2 months pregnant with her sister. I set up her bed just to get her used to the idea and give myslef time to transistion her to it....but as soon as I had it up, she wanted to sleep there. I was a little worried at first cause she still woke up one to two times a night but I let her and she slept through the night ever since.....Mybe you should try a bigger bed, or rearanging is room. That helps sometimes too. Look for triggers that may caus him to wake, for our dd int he crib it was that she would move around so much and her leg would slip though the rails and then when she went to move again, she couldn't and would wake up crying.....she just needed more room as Cyndi said her dd did. Worth a try.....
