What's the Deal With "Split Nights"

If you’ve heard the term before but aren’t sure what it means, consider yourself lucky. The “split-night” can be a real parenting headache, and it’s tough to remedy if you don’t understand what’s causing it.

Simply put, a split night is when your little one wakes up in the middle of the night, full of energy, and refuses to go back to sleep for a significant amount of time. They’re often not fussy or cranky, and they actually often seem pretty well rested. The only problem is that it’s 3:30 in the morning and nobody else in the family particularly wants to join the party

In this week’s video, I’ll explain the origin of this little phenomenon, along with some helpful tips on how to avoid it.
