General Sleep Issues / Re: Eat, burp, repeat nightmare at BT
« Last post by Striker1s on October 23, 2023, 13:27:41 pm »
When burping your baby, try different positions such as over your shoulder, sitting on your lap, or lying on your lap. Gentle patting on the back or rubbing the back in an upward motion can help release any trapped air. Experiment with these positions to find what works best for your baby.
You can try burping him more frequently during feeds. This can prevent too much air from building up and causing discomfort.
Pay attention to your baby's cues and try not to overfeed him. In addition, once you start diversification try different recipes like chicken thighs in oven. Sometimes, the desire to feed may be more about comfort than hunger. Learning his hunger cues can help you distinguish between the two.
Eating For Toddlers / Re: 20-month still drinks lots of milk before bedtime!

Since your child is used to the bottle before bedtime, start by gradually reducing the amount of milk given in the bottle. Over the course of a week or two, gradually decrease the amount of milk in the bedtime bottle while increasing the amount in the sippy cup. As you reduce the amount of milk in the bedtime bottle, offer comfort to your child in other ways. This could include reading a story, singing a lullaby, or cuddling with a favorite stuffed animal. The goal is to help her associate comfort with something other than the bottle.
It's normal for your child to resist the change at first. Be patient and persistent in offering the sippy cup. It may take time for her to adjust to the new routine.
By following these steps and being consistent, your child will gradually adjust to the new routine and become more comfortable with the sippy cup before bedtime. Remember that each child is different, so the timeline for adjustment may vary.
Eventually, when you will start diversification, you can prepare Alfredo sauce recipe, smoothies, or porridge.
Naps / Not enough hours in the day - how much to cap naps? 6mo
« Last post by Bera on November 08, 2022, 11:49:40 am »
Hi all

My 6mo has recently started napping well after months of catnaps, I owe it to the diagnosis of a cows milk allergy so weíre both dairy free and heís much happier and settled. But now weíre at 3 regular naps, but not quite ready for 2 yet and the day isnít long enough!

His current routine is
WU 7 (give or take 15-30 mins)
WT 2.5hr
Nap 1 9.30-11.30 (2hr)

WT 2.5hr
Nap 2 14.00-15.00 (1hr) - usually capped by me, so we can collect big brother from school and leave enough time for Nap 3

WT 2.25hr
Nap 3 5.15-5.45/6 (usually wakes himself crying)

WT 2-2.2.5hr
Bedtime 8ish (hard to settle most days)

(NW 3-4 night feeds but recently more unsettled from 5/6am onwards)

Iíve just started extending WT this week from 2.25 hour to 2.5hr bc naps were starting to shorten again. But now - weíre running out of hours in the day. Itís hard to settle him for Nap 3 so thereís lots of cuddling, rocking, etc to get him to settle.

Going forward - will I need to cap the naps further as I extend WT more? If so, which naps to cap and how much? Should I be continuing to extend WT or leave as it is for now until naps start to shorten?

At my wits end. This is happening too much lately. Any help please? She will be 9 years old in October
