I haven't seen any molars but they could be on the move I suppose.
Ok so basically the same routine we were on but with a later bedtime. We have had a lot of bedtime messing and often he hasn't dropped off til 7. 30 but it hasn't made a difference to wake up. I will be consistent with it for a few days and see what happens. Thanks!

Admittedly I haven't tweaked it at all. Now I feel bad!
Do not feel bad - we don't allow that here ;)
Seriously, we are all parents and we all do what we can with the information we have. Caring for babies is hard enough without you adding to the feelings of guilt!

I don't have a lot of time this evening and I'd like to have a proper look at your EASY to reply properly (it's a little hard to see your answers with those crazy quotes but I'll manage I'll just need to go through it again when I have more time available - don't worry you'll get used to the quotes soon enough) but the first thing I'm thinking now is that the A time is going over the 2hrs which is more suitable for a 5 months old. some of that is because it is taking time to get her settled... I would try a few days on a 1hr 45 min A time, aiming to have her asleep by 1hr 45 and lets just see if that changes anything. Could you also keep a note of how long into the nap it is that she is disturbed and needs resettling please?

See what you think and how that goes for a couple of days and I'll also come back to have another look at this info again.
Hi martini

Thanks so much for your reply.

He's always taken very little at 3am and we have thought for a long time that we need to wean him off it. Currently he has 4oz water with 3oz milk and I was planning to try and reduce that, have once and he woke up really early! Or shall I just give him water? He doesnt take a dummy but I read in the book that I could use that instead or is he too old?
I think we have just trained him to wake him up!! I feel at this age he should be able to sleep for longer than 4 hrs, especially now he's in food as well!!

Catnap- he use to have 20 mins around 430, generally in his car seat or pram. He has his other baps in the cot.
I think we are on way to 3 hr A time so the second nap should be later so hopefully can get him to sleep to around 3 rather than 230 which will help with OT. He does go to sleep unaided but recently due to dropping nap he is falling asleep on bottle at bed time. Should I try for an earlier bedtime so you think?
Thanks again for yours or anyone else's advice as I really need to sort this out!!!!!!

I have a 4.5 year old so I think I do rush in quicker during the night than I did first time!!
Sleeping For Toddlers / 18 Month Old Sleep Regression?!
« Last post by AshleyMegan on Today at 19:48:58 »
My daughter turned 18 months on 5-16-17.  She still sleeps pretty well at night and can resettle herself if she wakes.  Her naps are awful though.  We just got into 1.5h-3 h naps for a few weeks, and then this happened.  I will put her down for a nap and 45 minutes to an hour later, she wakes up screaming.  She often tries to put herself back to sleep but it doesn't work and I have to get her up.  She is so miserable during the day too.  She wakes between 7:30-8am, nap at 1 or 1:30 (depending on when she wakes) and is bed, asleep by 8 pm.   She used to wake up from her naps singing and happy.  Where did my happy baby go??!?  Any tips or do I just ride it out?  Help!!!

Thanks :)
Oh forgot to say he wakes up crabby and MAD! That's why I'm thinking it's just too early!

Thank you so much for your detailed response! He gets about 11 hours total for the day with how things are going.

We were dealing with a lot of anxiety back in March because we had gone away for 9 days and my mom watched him. We had pretty much moved past that with bedtimes back to "normal" and naps and WUs normal. And then WUs got earlier and earlier so I'm not sure!

I did not picture naps being so short at this age. I was just getting used to him napping two hours  ;)

But he's changing obviously! We will give the schedule you listed below a try and I'll keep you posted. You've been such a tremendous help! Thank you!  :)
