But their energetic daughter Ever can survive on as little as an hour and a half – and even been known to sleep at 20 minute intervals throughout a whole night. The reason for Ever’s sporadic sleeping patterns?
Angelman syndrome: a genetic and neurological disorder, which occurs in approximately 12-20,000 people.But while there are limits to what Ever can do, she’s not aware of them – and the only way she would be more perfect is if ‘she would sleep’.
Her mother, Ms Audette, 35, said: ‘If we can get anywhere between four-six hours out of her than we’ve done good.But there are nights she wakes up after an hour and a half she’s good to go for another six hours. We’ve kind of learnt to just roll with it.
