When I was anxiously counting down the days to my son's arrival, I couldn't wait to see his face. Once he was born, I couldn't wait to go to sleep. Then, as his first birthday loomed on the horizon, I couldn't wait for him to sleep through the night. After talking with my friends who were also parents, it became clear that worrying about baby's bedtime habits is a universally shared concern. Among the many questions you likely ask yourself, you might be curious about what sleep milestones a baby should reach at 18 months. After all, it's totally normal to wonder where your little one lands in terms of achieving developmental landmarks.
From rolling over and eating solid foods to walking and talking, the first year and a half of your child's life is full of moments to write about in a baby book or capture on video. But when it comes to the milestones that don't rank quite as high on the adorable chart — such as potty training, sleeping, and saying their first curse word — the whole experience can be a bit nerve-wracking. So if you're curious to see which sleeping benchmarks your little one should reach at 18 months, then check out these milestones.
